*It's that time of year again when we begin thinking about holiday gifts. Get something for everyone on your list at the DIY Trunk Show, featuring unique household items, cards and paper goods, home decor, jewelry, handbags, fused glass and so much more. The event takes place Saturday, November 22nd at Pulaski Park Auditorium, 1419 W. Blackhawk from 10am-5pm. Visit www.diytrunkshow.com for more information.

*Using the "hunger meter" is a vital part of intuitive eating. Before you sit down to eat, follow these simple steps:
1) Take a moment to assess your hunger.
2) Give it a rating on a scale of 0 (ravenously hungry) to 10 (very stuffed).
3) When your hunger is a 4, it's time to start eating; waiting until you're a 2 or 1 could cause you to overeat.
4) Start slowing down when you get to a 6 or 7 and reasses: Are you still eating to satisfy your hunger? Or are you just munching mindlessly?
