Beck Trek - Chapter 7 - Day 18 - Change Your Definition of Full
Monday, September 14, 2015
This is one of the chapters I skimmed over on my first run through Beck.
I am paying more attention to it this round. It has caught my attention because after lunch yesterday I was reading ahead...and I suddenly realized how stuffed I felt from my lunch. I like salads...BIG salads.
And there is certainly nothing wrong with that. My calories for the day were well within range. I ate all of the food because it was in my tracker and accounted for, not because I was still hungry.
There is something wrong with my not listening to my body and responding to the "full" feeling by stopping eating.
There are certainly times when I am eating the WRONG things and I feel full...yet I keep on eating.
I like the idea of stopping eating BEFORE I get to the point of fullness such that I would not be able to go for a brisk walk right after eating. This is a practical way to measure fullness that I intend to use going forward to help me make better decisions on when to stop eating.
Thanks Dr. Beck!
