If you are anything like me, you can’t wait for the end of a meal to start eating again. But, you know what is easier than eating something that has been sitting in your stomach for hours or days? Eating something that was prepared, cooked, and served to you. And while I don’t condone the food at the end of meals, it is still just as good.
There’s something about eating things you’ve cooked, prepared, served, and are now enjoying that makes the pleasure of eating come back again and again. It’s like a drug.
Thats kind of what I was talking about. Eating food that was prepared, cooked, and served to you can be addictive. Its one of those things that is easy to become addicted to, but it can be very difficult to get yourself out of. It is especially tough to get yourself out of when you are craving something that you haven’t had in a long time.
I have found the same thing to be true with food, even when I’ve been eating at a friend’s house. I’ve been there for days and eat out at a friend’s house and I’ll have a bowl of pasta or a plate of rice and you know, it can be a little overwhelming at that point.
You can get out of it by going for more than just the food. I think if you look around your house you will find that you are constantly eating. It is a vicious cycle that begins when you eat. You think you are doing a good job of it, but you are not keeping yourself from overindulging. You become more and more hungry and more and more you stop being able to stop. That feeling of being hungry is hard to describe.
This is another one of those things that is hard to explain but it is real. If you are constantly hungry, you will eventually stop eating. This can be extremely detrimental to your health. A study from the University of North Carolina compared people who ate a lot of processed grains, low-carbohydrate foods, and protein-rich foods with people who ate mostly whole grains, protein-rich foods, and low-carbohydrate foods.
The people who ate most whole grains and protein-rich foods had the lowest weight, lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar levels, and were least likely to become obese. The people who ate mostly processed foods also ate more than people who ate whole grains, protein-rich foods, and had the highest BMI. The most impressive thing about this study was that most people in the study were overweight or obese.
I think I would be more likely to lose weight eating whole grains and protein rich foods, but it’s probably the same reason that I’m not so attracted to carbs. I’m not too comfortable eating them, and I’m not that hungry, which is why I always find it easier to eat healthier, lower-carb foods. I’m just not that hungry.
I wouldn’t describe myself as a fattie. I do feel full, but I’m not a glutton. I still eat a low-carb, high-protein diet and it doesn’t seem to be helping me slim down. I’m just not that hungry.
In fact, just the opposite. You might want to reduce your carb intake, but just because you are not hungry doesnt mean you should cut down on your fat intake. Fat is a storage form of energy, and just because you are not hungry doesnt mean you should cut down on your carbs.
