I agree. It takes a lot of trial and error, but keep exploring what might work for you Ruby. When I experience this (and I do from time to time) sometimes water works (usually my first line of defence) sometimes a hot beverage, herbal teas in the evening, or coffee during the day. And sometimes gum works. Everyonce in a while I just tough it out until the next meal or snack, or bedtime. And in the spirit of full disclosure sometimes I give in.

Like lots of people have said before, a particularly high %of carbs in a meal most often triggers this sensation for me. It is one of the reasons that I avoid breads, muffins and pastrys for breakfast. But lordy, I do miss them
