Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

A Physical Hunger Scale, can help you rate your hunger, once you have determined that you are not eating for emotional reasons, but from physical hunger, is important to rate your hunger. There are different types of hunger charts that are complicated. I find them ridiculous.

A physical hunger scale, can help you to have control of your hunger and keep away from the starving and being stuffed range to avoid overeating.

I think the idea here, is that your stomach has three settings. Starving, Could Eat More, and Stuffed. This is Brian Wansink’s idea, and I think he’s right.
