    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" ?

    Some of the things I do:
    Set timer on microwave for 15 mins and go do something. Usually by the time it goes off the hunger has passed.
    Come online and write in 'diet diary'
    Work on photoshop tutorials
    Read my rss feeds
    Play an online game
    Clean something
    Paint my nails
    Have a warm bath
    Read a book

    Anything you can do to distract yourself!

    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.
