People with sz love to eat. I’ve noticed three things about my weight gain (about 40 lbs) over the past 10 years. Yes, the meds make me hungry, especially late at night. And yes, food is a ‘comfort’ to distract from actually having sz. And sometimes I eat as part of habit and timing, regardless if I am hungry.
Over the past two weeks, I’ve dropped about seven pounds with a simple method. I check in with my hunger at each meal period. I am usually not up during breakfast hours (unless I am working), but if I am, I eat sensibly, maybe cereal or eggs with toast. At lunch, I check in again and if I am not starving, I have oatmeal and a piece of fruit. If I do this, I am famished by dinner and have a nutritious, balanced meal (usually rice with chicken and veggies). I guess the key to my weight loss has been the lunch period. I’ve found that if I consistently ask myself ‘am I hungry?’, I realize that I am not that hungry and that an oatmeal with fruit will fill me up. And as far as eating late, the only counter I have is going to bed at an earlier time, before the cravings set in.
Do you have any weight maintenance/ loss tips? I’ve found the above mentioned to be very helpful in my recent weight loss.
