Feeling Full But You Think You Want Seconds.... Use The 1-10 Scale!

This Sparked Me!

I like the idea of judging my fullness after a meal using a scale: 1= I'm staving and need to eat immediately to 10= Thanksgiving meal full (in which I feel the need to take a nap). My goal is to eat to a 6- I'm not stuffed but very satisfied with my meal portion. If I want seconds, I think where I am going to end up on that scale. If I'm at a 5 but having seconds would put me at an 8, then I'm done eating. Feeling too full is a terrible feeling so this system prevents that from happening!!

This secret was adopted from my husband after he read some material introducing this fullness scale. It works wonders!!
