What do you do when you get the "urge" to eat ?


I was just wondering:

When you sit down and relax and your mind would automatically think of food, and you are in the habit of getting and eating food at certains points of the day (or like me, all day :D) What do you do to take your mind off it and to calm that "urge to eat" ?

Making a cup of tea or coffee works for me every time.

Yep, I'd have to agree, often we think of food when we are in fact thirsty so always go for a big glass of water or a hot drink see if that takes the craving away.
