Later on after your weight lost surgery when your tiny tank is more mature, eating can become a habit. I believe many of us live in a carbohydrate induced stupor. We eat more carbohydrates than we need and our bodies never burn the sugars consumed from meal to meal. They just end up stored as fat.
At your next meal time, ask yourself. Am I hungry?
We should be eating what we need at each meal. Eat fewer carbohydrates. Planning our meals helps with this. If you are eating just what you need then at your next meal you will be hungry. Sometimes I won’t eat too much at dinner. I’m just not that hungry. It throws my husband off. But I will sit at the dinner table with a cup of tea and join the meal time without eating.
I am drafting this blog as I wait in the car for my husband and son while they are in Home Depot. It is way past our meal time and I am hungry. I know I am truly hungry because I am cranky (hence I am waiting in the car) and my eye balls hurt. Strange, I know. But I learned the true meaning of hunger after my weight loss surgery. I could go a long time before needing to eat. But when I did need food my eye balls would hurt. Not the most scientific assessment but my body was telling me it needed food. Not by my watch, not my taste buds, not my mood, but my body.
So I ask you. At your next meal time, stop and ask yourself. Am I hungry?
