It's really hard to comment on the validity of the reasearch, but I discovered something that works for me, anyway.

A few years ago, I was surfing one night and had a horrible craving to eat - I usually crave either sweets, or protein. As it turned out, I had a bottle of water sitting beside me, so thought that I would drink the water. It was an AHA moment - once I had finished the water, I not only wasn't hungry, but didn't have the cravings any longer.

Since then, I have made it a ritual to drink the equivalent of a bottle of water if I feel cravings coming on. By doing that, I am able to better decide whether I am truly hungry and need to eat, or just dehydrated.

...my 2 cents
