It's a bit hard to explain but I find when I do eat, my body expects more food e.g. a subway 6", sushi or a bowl of pasta, etc... those type of things seems to kick start my stomach into wanting more food. Maybe coffee also makes me hungry (didn't have any today).
Today the biggest thing i ate were a couple of handfuls of tee-vee snacks (those little chocolate covered biscuits) and the rest of the things i ate were 6 strawberries and 2 mandarines. I am full as. I think if I had cereal in the morning, I would have eaten a lot more during the day.
This can't be bad right? Like if I don't feel hungry, I shouldn't eat... yeah?
I'm quite confused because I have always been conscious of not depriving my body. This has been my biggest barrier in weightloss... I thought if I didn't eat til I was full, or if I didn't eat at "meal times" I wouldn't be able to function (I feel kind of silly typing this now), like I wouldn't be able to do my uni assignments properly, I wouldn't be able to concentrate on work, etc. The fear of not working to the best of my potential was driving my eating.
Since I joined this forum, my eating has been all over the place. I haven't binged for a week... but last night I was sick and I threw up a total of 6 times, so pretty much I ate nothing yesterday... and now today I've had a minimal day... but for some reason I feel full of energy and full. I've been on quite a few diets... right now eating fruit is working for me, but I've really plateau'ed. I've been 59kg for over a month now. Is it ok not to eat much regularly (say, more than 2 days) if you're honestly not hungry? I just feel like it's an eating disorder or something, and I don't want to be judged
Has anyone else had similar experiences?
