I am not the kind of person to turn down a meal, even if I am full, so my experience yesterday was very interesting to me.
I ate a hot high fiber cereal for breakfast. Then I had 2 cups of broccoli florets with brown rice and mung beans for lunch. I'm guessing the fiber in those two meals was very high.
I felt so full that I knew if I ate dinner, even though I would be within my calorie range, I would not feel good. However, I was very hungry over the weekend and looking forward to eating.
I was just about to eat anyway out of psychological momentum.......it felt scary to behave differently.
Instead, I played back all of those "helpful responses" that got drilled into my head from listening to the CDs during my commute. I told myself that if I ended up getting hungry late into the evening that it would not be a problem. "Hunger is never an emergency" and though I've been hungry in the evenings for the last two weeks, I had yet to lose a nights sleep over it.
It was still scary, but I let it go and I successfully, painlessly skipped that unneeded meal which surely would have given me some nasty digestive distress upon awakening today.
