This has been so interesting, watching you learn how to listen to your body more carefully. I think you are moving into a whole new way of living.
There is some diet guru out there, whose name I totally forget, who basically tells people not to eat until they're hungry, and to stop eating when they are no longer hungry. That is the essence of her whole system. It was quite a revelation for me. I haven't been as systematic about it as you have, but it probably had something to do with my turning things around. When she was fat and trying to lose weight she decided to observe her skinny friends and that was the big thing that blew her away. They would stop eating in mid-burger if they didn't feel like eating anymore.
I do remember her saying that many people haven't been hungry in so long, that when they do experience hunger, they take it for indigestion.
I do try to time my eating to fit in with the social obligations of the day to some extent, but I am worrying about that less now that I'm not having the blood sugar crashes. I can tough out being hungry much longer without terrible consequences.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
