I almost put this in DT, since it seems like a stupid problem, but then I figured, what the heck it's a serious and very specific question to me. So - I have consistently failed in my diets because I cannot find a way of consistently resisting hunger. I want to learn how people have resisted those hunger pangs. What are some tips and best practices that you follow(ed)? Read any 'hunger-specific' books or learnt any strategies? Smaller and more portions? Plain old fashioned willpower (does not work for me)? Hypnosis? You read a book? I'm don't want to know about exercises or food content because I'm covered there. I just want to learn practical strategies and tactics on combating hunger. Finally, I'm asking the question because one year ago I gave up smoking cigarettes, and it was not willpower alone. I read a book, planned a strategy, followed certain rules....and succeeded. I want to know if I can do something similar again. So now I'm searching to develop a strategy against hunger. I know exercise, I know portion control, I know food content....but I don't know hunger. Thanks.
