    I found out something interesting yesterday....

    I felt absolutely starving yesterday, my tummy was growling loud enough for people to hear and it sparked a conversation off. We were talking about hunger pains, and that knawing empty feeling. I work in theatre and the surgeon there told us that the so called hunger pains are not actually a sign of hunger at all, it's caused by acid in the stomach.

    Usually it's at a time when you happen to be hungry, so it becomes associated with hunger, but it isn't actually a sign of hunger! This has explained a lot for me, because I often get that starving hunger pain after I've eaten... leading me to believe that I'm still hungry - but I'm not. It's my stomach acids getting to work on it's contents, I usually find that if I just sit it out it goes away fairly quickly, but the temptation to feed my stomach to take away the pain is huge. But now I know it's not real hunger at all, it's just that I've come to associate hunger with the pains.

    Amazing, so glad I had a growly tummy!!!!
