View Full Version : Fullness...I've missed you!

I just had lunch and I'm full. Not stuffed, but full. After my surgery I was calorie counting and hungry ALL THE TIME!

Interesting thing...I'm still within my pre-Atkins calorie limit but Im not starving!

Being full and not stuffed is one of my favorite things about this WOE. I never get up from a meal feeling like "why did I eat all that?" No more being totally exhausted from eating so much. If we had like spaghetti, forget doing anything after dinner- I just ate until I could eat no more. ugh

I agree...that IS one of the best things about being on Atkins. No more constant starving any more. You feel full after you eat and you stay full for quite some time. Unlike other diets I've been on.....I did not spend a huge percentage of time thinking about and planning what and when I could eat next.

And then to feel better and have more energy.

What's not to love?

I definately feel better, but darn - never have found that "energy? yet :(

However - I don't do a very good job of eating vegetables or taking vitamins. Ok- off to pop a vitamin RIGHT NOW!! I did just get back form the gym though :)
