from, "Food Rules: An Eater's Manual," by Michael Pollan

PART III: How Should I Eat? (Not too much).

Rule #47 - Eat when you are hungry, not when you are bored.

For many of us, eating has surprisingly little to do with hunger. We eat out of boredom, for entertainment, to comfort or reward ourselves. Try to be aware of why you're eating, and ask yourself if you're really hungry - before you eat and then again along the way. (One old wives' test: If you're not hungry enough to eat an apple, then you're not hungry.) Food is a costly antidepressant.

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.
