5 Witty Ways to Beat Hunger

5 Witty Ways to Beat Hunger

1. Drink Water. Sometimes you aren’t hungry, but thirsty. Try drinking a few tall glasses of water before you reach for a snack. You may realize you’re not hungry anymore.

2. De-Stress. Stress often causes people to eat. Next time you feel stressed, try a few deep breathing exercises or go out for a quick walk instead of eating junk food.

3. Fat-Burning Foods. If you have to snack, choose wisely. Many experts recommend the following fat-burning foods for snacks: pears, grapefruit, and navy beans.

4. Eat ONLY When You’re Hungry.
This one is tough, but if you can stick to it for at least one day, you may realize that your snacking is really a habit and not a need.

5. Try Listening to Music. Some studies suggest that music activates the same pleasure center of your brain that food does. Listen to an upbeat song and you may forget that you’re hungry.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
