What’s that noise?

A Dietitian’s View: “It’s noon and you start hearing those rumblings and grumblings in your tummy. Are you really hungry or are you just thinking about food becasue it is “lunchtime” causing food cravings? Did you just eat or did you skip breakfast and haven’t eaten anything yet today? Maybe you just saw a commerical for a new kind of pizza or walked by the break room where doughnuts are still sitting on the table. Can you trust those gurgles as a sign of hunger? All these things come into play when you’re deciding wheter or not to have something to eat. Actual hunger occurs when you haven’t eaten in a few hours and you have an empty feeling in your tummy. Get too hungry and you may start having blurred vision, headaches or lack of concentration.”
