I can hardly believe it myself. It makes no sense that it works, but somehow or another it calms it right down. I like the hot chocolate too, I've been buying the Swiss Miss Sensible Sweets, 25 calorie packs and I make it with hot water. I would never have believed that those would work for me either, but they do. Peppermint tea also works, tastes like candy and has zero calories.

Gum sometimes helps me, and sometimes it makes it worse. I find flavors like peppermint, wintergreen are fine, but something sweet like bubblegum or watermelon just kicks me into binge mode.
