A Step-by-Step Approach to Conquering Hunger Pangs

What if lunch is an hour away, or you’ve eaten your daily allotment of calories, but pesky hunger pangs are creeping up on you? What do you do? Put down that slice of pizza, can of soda–or even the granola bar you really don’t want. Mike Adams, the editor of Natural News, offers a step-by-step approach to dealing with hunger pangs. Even if you follow this path to the end, you will have consumed about 150 calories in total. Crisis averted!


Drink water. 8 ounces of water and a 10 minute break may be all you need to stop your cravings. Add a squeeze of lemon for some flavor and vitamin C.

If that doesn’t work…

Sip broth.

Chicken or vegetable will do, and if you experience side effects to MSG, then get one that does not contain it. Or whip up a homemade chicken stock and drink it when hunger strikes.

If that doesn’t work…

Eat green leafy, low calorie vegetables.

Lettuce, cabbage, and bok choy all work. Consume as a salad with a tiny bit of light dressing (though avoid corn syrup and artificial ingredients) or stir fry without oil using onions, garlic, and soy sauce as flavorings.

If that doesn’t work…

Munch on pickles.

Adams recommends pickles that avoid colorings and preservatives. You can even make your own pickled vegetables and keep them chilled for a quick crisp bite.

If all else fails…

Eat an apple.

While an apple does have more calories than the above items, it will fill you up thanks to its fiber content. You’re way more likely to feel full after eating an apple versus after eating potato chips or a bowl of ice cream.

If you are still hungry after water, broth, a huge salad, pickles, and an apple, then go ahead and repeat the steps.
