- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
So I’ve been trying VERY hard to eat much healthier — Skinny Cow or a piece of dark chocolate is my treat — but I’ve noticed that since starting to watch my diet, I’m not as hungry as often!
I wonder if it’s due to stress, being busy…or just finally adopting proper eating habits?
Anyone experience something similar?

It’s totally true, especially if you eat smaller meals throughout the day.
Plus I find when you eat the same old ‘crap’ you used to eat after eating the healthy stuff, you can really feel the bad stuff in your body. I have sworn off fast food!

I’m just starting to diet so hopefully I find my appetite decreasing because right now it is OUT OF CONTROL. Dieting sucks. I hate it. But over 4th of July weekend my mother so kindly reminded me that I have a lot of weight to lose before dress shopping next month. Thanks, Mom. Sigh.

I think eating smaller meals throughout the day makes a big difference. We should eat when we really feel hungry AND drink lots of water too. Planning ahead what you eat helps too. I love weight watchers because it shows us how to do all of that and makes it easy to be healthy, it just becomes a habit!
Oh and bruschetta, I totally LOVE skinny cow treats, they are the best!

Before our wedding, I started eating a lot healthier and more frequently. I also increased the protein and fiber in my diet which made a HUGE difference. Even though I was consuming fewer calories, I felt like I was actually eating more food since the new healthy food was so much more filling. For instance, I could have eaten an entire footlong subway double turkey sandwich (which I was never hungry enough to do), and it would have been fewer of calories than some of my previous unhealthy lunches. Maybe that could be a part of why you’re not feeling as hungry these days?

Eating healthy typically means that you eat more fiber, which makes you stay full longer. I think that’s been the big appetite suppressant with me!

In my experience, when I’ve cut back on how much I eat, my stomach shrinks, making me fuller faster… and I get a different idea of when I’m actually truly hungry. Before I know I thought I was hungry when I was really just bored!

Not only with the fiber making your feel fuller. But your body is probable gettng the good stuff it needs. So if feels better and fuller
