I wanted to share this stuff which I read in one of the health books.Here it goes...

Learn to identify your spot on the hunger scale:

1.Starving:An uncomfortable,empty feeling that may be accompanied by light-headedness or jitteriness caused by low blood sugar levels from lack of food.So the binge risk is high.

2.Hungry:Your next meal is on your mind.If you don't eat within the hour,you enter dangerous "starving" territory.

3.Moderately hungry:Your stomach may be growling,and you're planning how you'll put an end to that nagging feeling.This is optimal eating time.

4.Satisfied:You're satiated,not full but not hungry either.You're relaxed and comfortable and can wait to nourish yourself.

5.Full:If you're still eating,it's more out of momentum than actual hunger.Your belly feels slightly bloated,and the food does not taste as good as it did in the first few bites.

6.Stuffed:You feel uncomfortable and might even have mild heartburn from your stomach acids creeping back up into your esophagus.

So friends to slim down the best time to have you food is when you are either "moderately hungry" or "hungry"
