Do you eat when not hungry? Read on...

Diabetes UK has published some great advice (click the link), written by diabetes psycholgist Dr Jen Nash, who has type 1 herself (and visited Harrow for the CCG's consultation day last year).  

How often do you eat when you’re not really hungry? One minute your hand’s in the biscuit tin, the next that biscuit’s found its way into your mouth. Sound familiar? We’ve all been there! 

This is called ‘mindless eating’ i.e. when you’re eating because your mind is somewhere else and for a reason other than hunger. The food was there and you picked it up automatically and unconsciously, or because you wanted a distraction or break.
