Feeling Full Over Snacks .. Stomach Shrinking?

Postby Misstoodles » Thu Jan 17, 2008 5:13 pm

The past week it seems I can only eat really small, snack-like meals several times a day because they have me feeling really full. I can't manage dinner or lunch size portions anymore otherwise it feels like I've just eaten at Hogsbreath Cafe' and I'm uncomfortable and guilty for hours.

I'm wondering if its psychological that I dont have the desire to keep eating and eating so I no longer ignore the signs of being full.. or if it's because my stomach has shrunk??

My question is if anyone else has or is experiencing this??

Yes Megan, i'm the same. What I get full on now would have NEVER filled me up a few months back.

I think that its either shrinkage or just getting used to new eating habbits.

Someone that ate 3 sandwiches for lunch would not feel full on 1 the next day. Someone that eats 1 sandwich for lunch and feels full would feel like they would throw up after 3!

I used to be able to eat 4 pieces of toast for breakfast, and now, 1 piece with some fruit would have me feeling stuffed!
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.

Just enjoying the new and improved healthy me and embracing my new lifestyle!

Yeah I get it too.. I used to be hungry for an afternoon snack after lunch, but now I'm full usually right up until dinner (depending on what I've eaten, of course). It's probably because you're eating better quality, low GI foods as well :)
