i like shopping.....shopping with my friends,family, or all by my self..... when i shop alone i dont care if i shop with an empty stomach..... but when im with my family..... they make sure we eat first before we shop. maybe because when your hungry while shopping all you can think is food, of you want to finish shopping... is my reason same as yours? if you would shop, would it be with empty or full stomach?

It is advisable to shop with a full stomach and not an empty one. Hunger pangs affect you physiologically especially when your are surrounded by tempataions just like the case in groceries and shopping malls. People tend to satisfy the hunger by buying too much unknowingly.

I would rather shop on a full stomach.One thing me and fiance noticed was when we grocery shopping we spend more money when we are hungry then if we were full.

Hi Bhabytart, I have experience that go shopping with a empty stomach. You know what happen? You are right. All i think of is food, and i went to the food store buy all kind of food. Then later i found out that i can't eat them all and i have to take the rest of food with my when i go on shopping. That is surely not a wise thing to do. So please fed your stomch before you go for shopping, that is very important.

Yep. It is definitely harder to stick to your budget and your diet when you are hungry. Also, leave the kids and the husband at home whenever possible. That too will save you money.

I prefer shopping with a full stomach.this helps in buying clothes so I can see if a shirt or skirt will fit me even if I have a bulging tummy.this will also help in grocery shopping.you won't be tempted to buy everything in sight, and eat it too.

I've found that it's better if I grocery shop (with my parents) on a full stomach. If I'm hungry I usually end up buying a bunch of things that look good on the package but never eat them once they're at home.

Hmm, well, if it's grocery shopping, I'd definitely want to go on an empty stomach so that I'd be in the mood to buy food. But then, if it's for anything else (clothes, shoes, etc.), I prefer to do it on a full stomach. Shopping somehow manages to drain the energy out of me so eating beforehand actually helps me get through it.

If I shop on an empty stomach I fill my cart with sugary snack because I want them. If I have a meal before I go shopping, I do not want to go shopping because I just want to relax after a meal. What I do is at least have a snack, that way I am not craving the sugar stuff, but I am not too lethargic to move around quickly to get my shopping done. It always helps too to have a shopping list. This way you do not just buy on impulse, you can go directly to the items you need.

My Mom and I make a habit of buying ourselves something to eat for a buck right before we shop so that we don't want to buy everything in the store as we shop. Hunger really does seem to make us spend more.

I generally dont care about food during shopping. Rather I forget about food. Because, I love to shop and my concetration will be completely on that. Also, another problem is that, once I load my tummy, I would love to have some rest. So that will reduce the pace of my shopping. So I generally avoid filling my stomach. But I will have some juice inbetween and much some snacks as well....

I'd prefer to go window shopping when I'm just right full, but not so much full.. I don't like the feeling of hungry because I have this ulcer every time I don't eat at the right time.. I always wanted to be full rather be hungry or feeling hungry.. And window shopping is a good way to burn calories and digest the food, you know by walking.. So I'd go for the full stomach! I never liked the feeling of empty stomach..

My result of shopping with full or empty stomach is different. I prefer to eat with full stomach. Why? If I shop with empty stomach, I tend to put more food into the cart. Everything look delicious and tempting. Besides, with full stomach, I can think better as I need to compare items' price, quality and quantity before buying them.

for me its got to be on a empty stomach because once iv eaten i generally dont feel like doing much for a while. if i eat before i shop i just cant be bothered i always leave it so i eat after because then i know im not going to spend lots of time in the shops buying stuff i dont need.

I have read that grocery shopping with full stomach means less expenses. when we are shopping and hungry, we try to shop more food items as we are felling hungry.

I perfer shopping on full stomach to avoid making wrong choices. I do not want my family members to think about eating in the shop. I want them to make good choices whether it for clothing or anything else. On an empty stomach, they may grab something on the way and would never give a good thought before shopping.
