We are all faced with times when we eat without thinking about why we are doing so. We may be at a large event with an overabundance of food available and everyone is eating, so we are, too, without realizing we’re not hungry. We may eat mindlessly when we feel bored, sad, or stressed, and misread what our body is telling us. Those knee-jerk reactions can undo any and all progress we’ve made on our diet, so finding a way to circumvent them could be beneficial.
