surprise in the Foreman grill

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Part of my lunch was half a leftover pork chile verde burrito plus freggies. For some reason, half of that half didn't heat evenly, so I cut it in half and left part of it in the grill to stay warm. Got rushed after lunch in returning phone calls, picking up my car from the repair shop and taking it to another shop for a bid on the rest of the work to be done on it. Anyhoo, when I went to have dinner, I discovered the unfinished burrito and realized that though I had felt a little light right at the end of lunch, I didn't get hungry for dinner any earlier. Does this mean I will always choose to eat that little? No, but it means I don't have to worry for myself if at times I don't get the volume of food I'm used to. Normal eaters can get short-changed and not be fretting about what they didn't get to eat. I'm telling the story to you , but not going to dwell on it anywhere else. But it was interesting to see how satisfied I was with such a small amount of dense food.

    I know I often eat more food than my hunger level demands. It seems to me that a sane eater balances their consumption with their hunger. Thanks for sharing your insight.

    Interesting info. As I transition into maintenance I struggle some days to eat all that I should. I will lighten up my attitude and not be too concerned on those days.

    Americans often 'overeat' due to an inappropriate perception about the amount and do not pay attention to body signals.

    It seems to me that we often *perceive* that we need more than what is actually required - I don't know if it's a sign of how we live our lives these days (i.e., in great need of having everything NOW - immediate and complete gratification).......
