Beating Hunger Pangs

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise. Ephesians 5:15 (NIV)

Ever been in a food emergency? When your blood sugar starts to drop, you are hard-wired to eat anything (and everything) in sight. To think you can use willpower to control your hunger or cravings contradicts the science of how your brain controls your behavior. Food emergencies lead you to choose poor quality, high-sugar, refined foods and eat more than you need.

The solution to avoid a food emergency is a simple, practical idea that most of us never think about: planning. Start your day with a healthy balanced breakfast, eat every three to four hours, hydrate your body throughout the day, and stock an emergency food kit that you take with you in the car, to work, and on errands.
