People always seem to be eating around you, you think you’re hungry all the time, and progress seems so slow that you feel that it’s not worthwhile.

Here are the best things to do when you feel hungry and it’s not meal-time on your eating plan.

1. Drink a BIG glass of water

We very often confuse hunger for thirst. More often than not a tall glass of water is what your body needs when you think you are hungry.

Start the day with a big glass of water and every time you get hungry drink water first. Wait 15 minutes and if you’re still ravenous have a fruit, some nuts or a piece of cheddar cheese.
