LC Diet Tip of the Day: 104

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Eating fast food? Choose the kid/junior size.

Yes, even on LC. Part of losing weight is mental. They say: "eat like a skinny person."
"BUT I"M HUNGRY! and not like a skinny person!"
Yeah.... BUT! You can still eat like a skinny person. So eat that smaller portion. Like a skinny person would. DON"T eat the freaking BIG VALUE meal. You have now successfully eaten like a skinny person.
A couple of hours from now, when you are again or still hungry, go out and have ANOTHER "skinny person" size meal. Why? Because you are hungry!

But why eat 2 small meals instead of one? Because you are in training to be a skinny person. So you're eating (twice) like a skinny person. No, silly, you are not counting calories (on low carb), but you ARE training your brain. And more importantly, you ARE training your stomach and entire gut to act like a skinny person and expect to be fed like a skinny person. You ARE learning to be satisfied with less at any one time. Bet'cha anything that eventually, you will find that you can eat and be satisfied with less than you used to eat.

    emoticon or don't eat at fast food places in the 1st place ;) I would if i could but dh won't hardly ever stop unless we are traveling and trying to save $$ which is almost never. When we were "truck drivers" we made sandwiches and only stopped at "buffets" once in awhile. Thanks Koshie, again.

    Great idea. I've been doing that naturally today, but I should do that all the time.

    Sigh... I know. Skinny people have as much brown fat (metabolically active tissue) as fat people, but it is a greater percentage of their body weight. And they don't have all that insulating fat. So instead of burning a little energy to keep their body warm (and staying that way), they burn a little--and their bodies rapidly cool off, so they burn a little more, and a little more , and a little more, and.... they stay skinny! That's my theory and I'm sticking to it!

    Perhaps I should have said: Eat like one of the "Ladies Who Lunch". They are notorious for nibbling at salads. That is the stereotype. emoticon

    it is a great idea to eat the kids' meal. when i am hungry, i order a jr. cheeseburger and a bottle of water at wendy's and i don't eat the bun.

    BUT, i just wanted to say, all my skinny, petite girlfriends eat like freakin' truck drivers! if i imitated their way of eating i would way 400 pounds! it's true, they do. emoticon
