Thought-induced hunger is a real thing: just thinking about food makes you hungry.
How often have you searched for inspiration about what you might prepare for dinner? You contact Chef Google and start searching while considering a range of questions: What’s already in the cupboard? Do I have meat in the freezer? How many people am I feeding tonight? Who likes what?
While you’re searching, you find that you start getting hungry. Perhaps it’s the lovely images that go along with recipes, maybe it’s the anticipation of the tastes to come, or there’s even a chance that you start salivating because you don’t want to miss out.
With so many everyday occurrences that can create thought-induced hunger, how can we avoid it?
Be organised, avoid food porn, and stay away from tempting environments, and your thought-induced hunger will be a problem of the past.
