Can’t seem to stop eating, am I possessed?
Do you feel like you have an never ending appetite where you’re hungry again soon after a meal? Feeling like you might be possessed with an eating spirit? Don’t scare yourself, but first check to see if you are also having abdominal bloating, constipation, dry lips, bad breath, dry mouth and acne. If you do, then you are not possessed but rather there is heat in our stomach and intestines. From Chinese medicine perspective, a hot stomach will burn grains, and that is why you may feel constantly hungry. To relieve the condition, try clearing the stomach heat by eating less hot-natured foods, fried and spicy food. Appropriately eating cold-natured vegetables can also help dispel the heat and say good bye to that chubby body!
