Do You Stop Eating When You're Full?
I would love to learn how to eat "normally" By that I mean eating when I'm hungry and stopping when I'm full. I really struggle with it. To provide some context, I spent many years being morbidly obese. I'm 5'7" and topped out at 315. I lost 120+ pounds through strict calorie restriction and chronic cardio (Ironman). I've been primal for almost 2 months (staying fairly low carb 25-75g/day) It's been going pretty well, I've lost 16lbs and feel much better (still have 40lbs to lose)
The one thing that I still struggle with is stopping when I'm full. Often I'll be half way through a plate of dinner and feel full. Instead of stopping I'll just keep eating because it tastes good. I've used food as comfort, entertainment, mood regulator etc. for so long that I'm finding it hard to change that pattern.
Curious if anyone has overcome this? Is it possible to learn to eat when hungry and stop when full? Any tips, strategies or advice?
