Do you think the volume of food affects the feeling of fullness? Do you eat a big ass salad and feel as full for as long as if you ate a big ass bowl of oats or a big ass pile of bacon and eggs or a big ass steak? I'm just curious. Cows pretty much eat all day long from what I've seen, but if their grain-based food is more dense in calories than grass, do they stop eating because they get full or do they keep on eating like they normally do when they eat grass because eating all the time is just what cows do? Do healthy people eating healthy food stop eating because the capacity of their stomachs has been reached or because they've gotten enough calories? If I started eating lots of salads all the time would I lose weight because my stomach would be full from all these big salads that have relatively low calories? Or would I get hungrier and end up having to eat ever bigger salads every day until it's a wash as far as calories?
