Eat a small handful of walnuts or almonds 30 min. before a meal and you won't be as hungry. Also great for an afternoon snack- gets the brain "full" . I also eat with my oatmeal and salads. They are the best filler-upper!!!

I wish I could say that I always eat when I should, but there are times when I don't. I'm working or just busy. The problem I kept running into was this panicky hunger. If I'm in the car it's the worst because. I've often gone through the drive-thru. I've started keeping a can of mixed nuts in the car so when the panic sets in... I pop the top eat some nuts and the urgency goes away. I'm able to calm down and figure out a healthy alternative to the drive thru.
Olive Oil reduces inflamation in the brain. People who eat a lot of trans fat that are found in donuts, pasteries, crackers and the like, are more likely to have inflamation of the brain which causes depression. Dehydration can also cause a person to be cranky, fatigued and depressed. Eat seafood 2X per wk or Omega 3 foods to keep inflamation down. Eat nuts, not to go nuts. LOL Almongs & walnuts are good choices, seasame and flaxseeds for Omega 3's.
Anytime I think I'd rather not go for my daily walk/jog I shout, "Sparky do you want to go for a walk!" and he goes nuts. After that there's no turning back, I have to walk him because I can't bear to see him whine at me with those sad eyes!
