If You Are Full
Practice mindful eating never eat too fast or too much at once. Practice what is mindful eating which means enjoy each mouthful and be aware of how full you feel. Don’t stuff food in your mouth if you are starting to feel kind of full.
Remember that if you are eating because you’ve been feeling hungry you might eat more than your body really needs, Once you have eaten sit back and consider if you are feeling full or if you still have an appetite, only then put a little more on your plate until you feel satisfied but no completely full.
Have a snack if you feel hungry. If you haven’t had the time to eat a full meal all day stop to have something to eat so that you won’t overeat once you finally sit down to a full meal. Perhaps a salad like a corn salad might satisfy you hunger pangs and you’ll feel better to have eaten something,
The idea to avoid getting too hungry is to begin by having a hearty breakfast that includes some grains or seeds or nuts. Then in the middle of the day have something delicious and satisfying that won’t fill you up too much like a salad or piece of fruit. Finally end the day with a delicious dinner. Just remember: if you are full, stop! It’s not worth it beyond the moment!
Stop eating when you no longer feel hungry. As you’re eating something delicious like tomato salad eat until you feel satisfied and no longer hungry but don’t keep eating until you feel too full. The idea is to finish what you are eating and stop to pause and see how you feel.
Keep in mind that it takes your brain about 20 minutes to realize that you are full and in the meantime your body produces leptin which is a hormone that signals that you’re really full. So give your body the time to adjust and get that full feeling so clear the table or go do some things to give your body a rest after eating.
