Playing Drs. Rx: Don’t Make Decisions on an Empty Stomach

Are you trying to make a big or difficult decision? Make sure you eat first!

The Doctors share the best way to avoid making a horrible choice is to never do it with an empty stomach, according to a study from the University of Dundee.

The study found that hunger "significantly altered people’s decision-making, making them impatient and more likely to settle for a small reward that arrives sooner than a larger one promised at a later date."

The Doctors say this happens often when it comes to deciding what to eat, and they suggest either planning out your meals before you get hangry, or enjoying a small healthy snack before making your meal plans, in order to avoid settling for whatever is available, which can often be something unhealthy or processed.
