Kerri-Ann asks: Are you an intuitive eater?


No, I'm not an intuitive eater. I can go a week without eating and not feel hungry, and sometimes I do. I also never feel full after a meal, which is probably because I naturally eat so slowly. Only if I have to rush do I feel full, and I feel like I shouldn't have to do that.

Yes, I am, but now I drink Koyu matcha green tea twice per day and that tea is amazing. It is from japan and now I can eat whatever I want when I want, but with that tea I don't take more weight, you should really try it.
Good luck guys

Yes, I always have been.I eat what I want, when I want and how much I want to and surf, dance, play soccer, power walk with my iPod and other forms of fun exercise.Basically, I don't do anything I don't want to do.

I am not a full time intuitive eater, but I want to be at that level. When I think about dieting and then try it I get so anxious that I gain weight! Last time I was a nervous wreck and I can't put myself through that again. So, fatty as I am, my first priority is my peace of mind. I find that days I work I want to sit around and eat all kinds of junk but when I am not working I can take my time and enjoy my food. Sometimes I eat more than other times but I am not grabbing everything I can to pork out on and I will choose some fruit and such to eat as well. I feel like I will lose the weight I gained from the last diet if I relax. It will be interesting to see how this works out when I retire, in less than a year.

yes you're right. i'm an intuitive eater. ever since i gave myself full permission to eat what i want when i want in whatever quantity i want i have ended up less obsessed with food and eat more normally. the fever is over and i am 30 pounds down form the previous year's weight of 320. don't get caught up in the dieting game for it is a trap. the americans are a diet conscious nation and they are the most obese. the french don't know what diets are and they are ten times healthier. they enjoy fresh slow food and eat at a leisurely pace and zestfully luxuriate in the fresh outside air rather than the cubicle stuffy atmosphere. they're not that much into fast food either. i mean they really luuuuurve to eat. and they do it intelligently. that is the only secret.

Don't eat bread, potatoes, rice, and pasta.if you like chckein live of that. omlette for brekkie mushroom, peppers, garlic, any veg you like really. only use 1 egg yolk and 2 or 3 Whites, or scrambled eggs.lunch, chckein stir-fry, (no noodles) with a stir fry sauce, or just fry some chckein and add some frozen mixed veg.tea, same sort of thing as lunch if you had stir fry have the chckein and veg, also with the chckein and veg you can add a tin of chopped tomatoes and a bit of curry powder.there is just as much goodness in frozen veg as fresh, plus water comes out of it so if your making the curry or stir-fry its never dry.also if you don't mind hot food add 1 gram of fresh chillie into every meal, it speeds up your metabolism, and eat a whole red pepper before you go to bed.stick to this and you will loose weight, i hav lost 3 stone since christmas, and i don't go to the gym or anything like that, im quite active but nothing serious.if you do this I GUARANTEE YOU WILL LOOSE WEIGHT but you MUST avoid the 4 foods i mentioned will fall of you, good luck..
