Problem - Eating Til I'm Full

Postby julzmusic » Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:32 am

Hi guys,

I’ve already discovered my first obstacle to overcome, and that is my natural tendency to eat til I’m full!! I eat my yoghurt for breakfast, at about 7:15am then by 9:00 I’m already hungry, then again at 10:30 but I’ve had to force myself to stop eating between times because I didn’t get full initially.
When I explained it to my parents, they said it was because that’s what all the junk food I was eating and am used to eating, that fills me up entirely, leaving me feeling fat and lethargic but at least fully satisfied and no longer hungry!!!

I know it will naturally take my body a while to adjust to smaller amounts more often as apposed to one big filling meal, but to get over the initial cravings of wanting a big filling meal, what do you guys do?

How should I stop myself from eating til I’m full!?!

Hi Julz, I can't tell you what I've done, since I'm a grazer and my stomach isn't used to being full, all I can suggest is that you eat low energy density foods before a meal. Brussel sprouts, cabbage, that sort of thing.

If all you're eating for breakfast is yoghurt, there's no wonder you are hungry! Maybe you aren't eating enough - that is possible. Check out http://www.calorieking.com.au - it can teach you a great deal. It changed my life!

hi Julz,

i reckon Czarina is right! your not eating enough for brekkie.
i eat low fat yogurt with unsweetened muslie and berries for breakfast. i eat around about 8-8.30 cause i eat when i get to work cause im super lazy in the morning!
then ill eat lunch - usually a small tin of john west tuna with a handfull of spinach, some fetta (100cal) 1/4 cut up tomato, some bean sprouts and some cucumber. this will keep me full till four when i eat nuts and fruit.
dinner will be some kind of meat with rice/pasta and veges.
everytime i eat im full but i dont feel bloated and i loose weight. i am in the upper end of the healthy weight range, so if i can loose weight by eating this i think it must be enough.
im also not hungry all day.
so to sum it all up you can eat more than your eating and still loose weight. (always include some sort of cardio 3 or more times a week)
eat lots of veges for lunch and dinner, they fill you up without being high in calories
and one of the tips i was given was to always try and have some protein in each meal/snack you have. protein keeps you full for longer
good luck.
2010 goal: get to 56-8kg and keep fit & healthy!

Thanks so much! Yeah I was also not sure, when looking at one of the drinks I was drinking it said 900kj and no fat... So I was confused, as to how calories or fat played a part in food....

Yeah I agree with the way wannabeslim is thinking.

If you keep your yogurt but put it on the unsweetened muesli for your breakfast that should keep you going until at least 10.30am! If you can stomach oats/porridge its also a great filling breakfast. I make it with skim milk and water and throw in a banana and a teaspoon of honey as well. It keeps me going for hours and its yummy.

Lunch is wholegrain bread, maybe two eggs (one yolk) on it and some salad mix. (or substitite for tuna/chicken/turkey breast) and a piece of fruit or low fat yogurt.(

Snack is a few wholemeal crackers with a bit of peanut butter on each one for the afternoon 3.30 itis!!

Eating steamed vegies at dinner is great too with some lean protein. Filling and low calories.

Good Luck with everything!
