False -- When you want something to eat it doesn’t always mean your body needs food. Tricky, huh?
Here’s the deal: Have you ever been watching TV and get a case of the munchies? You may not be hungry, you may just be bored. Feelings -- like boredom, sadness, or stress -- can make us think we need something to eat.
Don't munch on food when you feel that way. Look at food as fuel for your body. The point of eating is to give you energy. Food can’t fix feelings.
Feeling bad? Try another way to feel better. Call a friend or go for a bike ride. You might even be thirsty and confuse that for being hungry. Try drinking a glass of water.
