I don't like it when my appetite wakes me up before the alarm in the morning, especially on a day off. I am aware it was not hunger, but my appetite, because I felt full in my stomach etc. I really didn't want to eat and I had my morning ritural to go through before I ate breakfast. My deeds were all in the back of my head. I was being led by a strong desire or inclination to whet (sharpen, excite) my appetite. I've made a discovery for myself. I had a good bit of chocolate before I went to bed. That had ignited a craving for sugar making me feel a strong desire to eat even though I was not hungry. To keep me from eating the wrong instant gratification foods or just from overeating in an addictive manner; I reluctantly microwaved two hot dogs, no buns, and fed the need, to stop the distraction of said appetite. The controlling feeling is gone. Now I feel as if I can get back into the drivers seat! When will I learn my lesson and stay completely away from sweets???

Drink water. I mean really drink.

I am telling you, if you wake up, and the first thing you do is drink a glass of water - just 8 oz will do, your hunger will almost instantly gets staved off.

Water does two things to me. It first fills my belly, so I am not so ravenously hungry, and second it helps my internal system to do flush things out.

Just watch how much water you really drink. We do the talk, how we need to drink 8 x 8 oz but never really do drink. I watch my friends and there would be days go by without them drinking...
