I have noticed over the last six days, since beginning a Daniel Fast, when I concentrate on vegetables, I am not eating nearly as much. I am full a lot faster. I am not craving crappy-for-you-in-large-quantities food...However, Sunday and Monday, I had flour tortillas with my bean tacos. I over ate. I craved more. The flour tortillas weren't filling me up. The days I went over my calories, I had stuff that was meat-free, but still kind of processed. When I have had whole foods-beans, lentils, brown rice, raw veggies...I don't want as much. I'm not hungry. I have a hard time getting the "minimum" calories guideline set by spark for me.
I don't need as much coffee. I'm good with one 16 ounce cup.
I am NOT doing the fast for weight loss. It is strictly for spiritual reasons, but I am NOTICING a lot of health benefits.
If I feel full, and am no longer hungry at under 1300 calories, when my minimum is 1430-do I HAVE to make myself eat?
