Are you overeating? Do you know when it is time to stop eating? Do you eat with distractions?
“Did you know that in 15 – 20 meals you can reset the muscle memory of the stomach to get used to less food?” (Not Overeating Article)
I remember growing up and being told “eat everything that’s on our plate”. Well I’m going to try this out and see if I can awaken my natural signals. Eat when hungry and stop when full. We will see what happens!
Today, went rather well. There will always be a learning phase in everything we do that is new. Today I focused on how I felt when I was actually hungry, stopping when full or 80% full and learning that leaving something on my plate is ok. I am also trying to focus on eating without distractions. At dinner I maybe had two fork of chili left. It was hard to leave it and put it in a container for tomorrow’s meal. This should get easier as I go along.
Breakfast: Overnight Regular Oats
Lunch: 50/50 Salad (50/50 Half starch, Half Leafy Greens) with French Onion Dip (dressing)
Dinner: Vegetarian Quinoa Chili, Salad topped with Dill Pickles, pickled pepper rings and dressing (yogurt & King Sauce)
The vegetarian Quinoa Chili is a new recipe I tried. It had oil for sautéing the onions, of course I left that out. If you want to learn how to sauté without oil here you go. Browning without oil
