  • How Do You Do It? (Stomach Size)

    Some people eat 3 eggs + 4 pieces of bacon for breakfast. Some people eat 1.5 pounds of meat plus veggies for lunch.

    Do some people just have stomachs that are THAT much larger than mine? Does it take you an hour to eat your lunch so some of it has time to move on? Do some people really have hollow legs that they store it in for later?
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

      Yes. Most of my friends know that when I eat, I take no prisoners.

        What runnergal said.

        It's not hard to down a 3 egg omelette and 4 piece of bacon. I can inhale it in under 5 mins. Yum!

          I'm not one of those people. Any more than about 500-600 calories in a meal and I feel awful.

            Thank you for asking this! I've been wondering myself.... although still a newbie. I had what I would consider a "large" bowl of stew (large for me anyway) a couple of days ago and I was overly full, bloated and miserable.

              More precisely

              Yes. No. Yes.

              The bowl I use for my salads is the one that came with my dishes as a serving bowl.

                Yesterday, after the gym, I ate 1,000 calories in under an hour. It was delicious! No Nola w/coconut milk, a can of tuna, some pastrami, a little cheese, and some protein powder. I was quite content til dinner time.

                  You've seen me eat....
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                    Yes, and I'm still trying to figure out where you put it!

                    You saw how much I ate, and I was stuffed!

                      For me I can eat a lot or a little depending on my mood and schedule... for example my lunch today was (approx.) 1lbs ground beef, 1 green pepper, 1/4 large onion, 5 large carrots, 1 head of broccoli, 2 tbps butter... put away in about 15 mins most likely I won't eat the rest of the day...but sometimes I do

                      I have no trouble putting away a 6 egg omelet with veggies but can't do much more with all the air content and whatnot I don't feel well...

                        I can't manage more than a 2-egg omelette if it's got veg and meat and stuff in it. The most I've eaten recently was a probably 8-oz portion of roast beef following a salad... and I felt pretty gross after that, to be honest. It was coming off a fast, so I had room in my tummy - but I should have stopped after about 6 oz.

                        All that having been said, I'm only 5' tall and need less than 2000 cal/day so it's probably good that I can't stuff too much in. Generally - and I'm gonna get some flak for this - I think people in North America eat too much. Much more than they need. Grokkers can get away with it, because of the nature of the food they eat, but portion size is a big, big part of why North America has an obesity problem. (And, yes, corn syrup etc.) I have to feed a 6'1" man and a rapidly growing 5-year-old, it's in my financial best interests for me to eat an amount commensurate with my size! And I am slowly training the 6'1" man to eat a little less at a time, too.

                          As they say in basic training, "Eat now, taste it later!" It is a habit I am trying to get away from. That said, I usually eat a 'normal' meal in under 5 minutes.

                            I would tend to agree with that... but for me, when I eat the amount listed prior... that is pretty much I eat all day... it just so happens to be in one meal

                              I'd shared on another thread that I'd tried to eat just two meals a day, spaced twelve hours apart. I just couldnt eat enough to stay satisfied that long!

                              I have no problem fasting ~17hrs and eating all my nutrients in an 7-hr window. I can do 4 eggs at a time, but that's about it...
