    Does anyone else suffer from 'mouth hunger' as I like to call it? (when your mouth is hungry but your belly isn't) If so, what do you do?

    I quite like just having something in my mouth....is that what you mean?

    I go for a drink....I might be boring though :p I'm sure celery would be grand though....maybe?

    I can't chew gum, my stomach thinks it's going to be fed! Truth be told, I have abit of a phobia about it as my mother told me if I swallowed it it would gum my insides up. :eek:

    "my mother told me if I swallowed it it would gum my insides up. :eek: "

    My mum told me that too Judi, and if I swollowed apple pips I would have an apple tree growing inside me, how gullable can one get lol.

    Anyway, comming back to mouth hunger, try a pickled onion or a girkin, that should sort it out hun.

    Brush your teeth. Always works for me. Clean teeth and a bottle of water to drink.

    If I fancy something - I have either a cup of tea or a coffee (they seem to take the edge off mouth hunger) OR a bunch of grapes OR if possible go and have a game on the DS - busy hands means no hand / mouth action - LOL

    Try Little Gem lettuces. Or an Iceberg lettuce cut into chunks.

    Useful if you need something crunchy and can't stop thinking about crisps!!!

    I think mouth hunger is more easily treated than the growling belly kind! When my mouth wants something, I go get a lolly to lick. The skinny cow double choc type take ages to finish and don't melt that quickly so it usually gets my tastebuds through their temper tantrum!

    A good alternative is a frozen curly wurly. Definite staying power for the mouth!
