The next time you have a snack attack, try massaging one of these acupuncture points to help reduce hunger and control your appetite:
- Place your index finger next to the small piece of flesh that protrudes from the inside of the ear, above the earlobe. This is the primary appetite control point. Hold this part of the ear between your thumb and index finger and manipulate for three minutes.
- Using your thumb and index finger, locate the spot just behind and beneath your earlobe. There is an appetite control area right behind where the earlobe meets the skin. Massage for 1-3 minutes.
- Another major control point for appetite control is located between the upper lip and the nose, about one-third of the way from the center of the nose. Press or manipulate this area with moderate pressure for 60 seconds to few minutes.
