If you've ever gone grocery shopping while you're hungry, you know that everything looks good. Now new research confirms that grocery shopping when your stomach is rumbling is probably not a good idea. Cornell University compared the purchases of those who went shopping between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., a time of the day when people are less hungry, to those who went shopping between 4 and 7 p.m., when people are more likely to be hungry. Those who shopped between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. bought fewer low-calorie products compared with those who shopped between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
