Sometimes I just want to eat. Even when I'm not even hungry. For instance, I had a big bento box at Sushi 101 today for their lunch special, and I'm still pretty full. But It's 4 o'clock and I've been craving the Larabar that's in my desk since 2:30. My mind is playing tricks on me!
I think the problem is that I find it difficult to resist food when it's right in front of (or in the drawer behind) me. If I know it's there, I want to eat it. The main remedy for this problem is logic and self control. I just ate lunch and I'm still full, so why would I eat more? Because food is good, duh. I'll just drink my water and exercise some self control before I got to the gym and exercise... my body.
