Being a binger I have a hard time just keeping the inappropriate foods out of my mouth. But what about the appropriate foods. Sometimes I'm just not hungry when it's "time" to eat a meal. Last night I ate supper despite not being hungry.
It's all confusing to me. I have such an unhealthy relationship with food that I don't recognize normal from not normal behavior.
I'm doing a modified exchange program. I have 3-4 proteins, 4-5 vegetables, 2-3 fruits, 2-3 starches, 1-2 fats and 1 dairy servings. I try to break it up so I'm having B, L & D with 2-3 snacks. I also drink 2-3 low cal natural protein shakes for when a craving strikes, it seems to help keep my blood sugar regulated. My average calorie intake is 1200-1800 calories/day.
Right now I'm not hungry but I've been told time & time again to eat something for breakfast even if it's something small. But I'm just not hungry. If I wait until I'm actually hungry to eat it could be almost lunchtime, around 11:00).
Should I only eat when I'm hungry? Or is it more important to eat at established times even though I'm not hungry at those times?
