    Stretched stomach

    Some of you may remember that, a few months ago, I was attempting to cut hardcore in preparation for a fitness photo shoot. Well, it went great... and by great, I mean I looked awesome, and the shoot was a success.

    On the other hand, I was starving and miserable the whole time, because my calories were so low. In the weeks since the shoot, I've gone a little crazy, and binged my way through more food than I'd like to admit. I feel like my body needed it, honestly, because I was probably malnourished.

    The problem now, though, is that I think I've stretched my stomach in a big way (I don't mean my belly, because I'm still lean, but the stomach organ). After overeating so much, I find that it now takes way more food for me to be full. I'm able to consume far larger volumes of food than I have ever been able to in my life, and I'm still always hungry for more. I've been trying to get back on track by allowing myself only normal portions of food, but my stomach feels constantly empty. Any advice on how to shrink my stomach back to a normal capacity? Should I fill it with lots of veggies, or is that counter-productive?

    Time + volume = stomach size

    It'll respond to less volume by shrinking again. Eat dense satiating food (i.e. MEAT ).

    And/or IF. But as usual, Neckhammer is on point.

    No one will believe you unless you post pics from how you looked when you were competition ready.

    You've gone from a weak eater to a strong eater? Congratulations! Now you can actually eat enough food and get the body you're after. Don't even try to eat less.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Personally I don't buy into the stretched stomach theory, I can eat 3+ full meals into a single sitting and then go 24-36 hours without feeling debilitating hunger.

    More likely your body has decided you can't be trusted and is over reacting to the abuse you put it through, give it plenty of good food, regain it's trust and this behaviour will subside over time.
    Every time you try to screw with your body, it will work out a way to screw you even harder.

    stomachs stretch like anything else on the body

    when i was in the hospital and on hardcore drugs, my appetite disappeared to the point i was threatened with tubes and ensure

    after the hospital, the first meal i remember eating was less than half a sandwich and i was full

    the second one i remember eating was mcdonald's with a friend. i tried to be normal like friend and eat nuggets and a burger (teenager logic, does stupid things to be like others) and i had to rush to the bathroom to either puke or diarrhea it out in a belly dump, i was that full

    you're all welcome for the tmi
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol
