If you are still hungry after 20 minutes, make sure to drink water first and change the environment you are in, even for 5-10 minutes. You will feel that what you are experiencing is emotional hunger, that your stomach is actually full and satiated. Studies indicate that reasons such as sadness, anger, stress, boredom, and loneliness can lead to emotional hunger
