Do you find yourself eating between meals or waking up in the middle of the night to raid your refrigerator? That kind of overeating can surely take a toll on your weight. What can you do about it? Here are ten of the top tips to diminish those pesky pangs once and for all!   Number One – Chewing Gum gum This is a great way to trick your brain into thinking that you are eating. If you are getting hunger pangs when you know you aren’t truly hungry, get a stick of gum out and start chewing!     Number Two - Chug That Water! Start-Chugging-Water Okay, maybe don't chug it - it's not good to drink too much water all at once. However, it is good to get half of your body weight in ounces of water, throughout the entire day. The water will release the toxins out of the body as well.     Number Three – Brush Your Teeth brushing-teeth-flossing The fresh, minty taste leaves a great feeling in your mouth and will deter you from eating when you aren’t hungry. There are people who diet who use this trick.     Number Four – Chew Some Ice ParkRidgeDDS-Ice-Cubes The logic behind chewing ice is the same as chewing gum. Chewing ice will trick your mind into thinking you’re eating something. A benefit of this technique is that it will also fill the body with some water.     Number Five – Essential Oils bottle of fir tree essential oil - beauty treatment Specific essential oils have been known to suppress appetites.
