Question about fullness
Recently I've been snacking less because I have class, and mainly just eating brekfast, lunch, dinner. But I've also noticed I've started to feel FULL at these meals. Not full like in pain, but just a mild sensation of fullness.
Now my question is this - they say never to eat until you are full, but does this include if you are not snacking? Because I ate about 500 calories for lunch today - small bowl of chowder and small carton of yogurt w/ one kiwi and 6 strawberries in it. I started feeling a sensation of fullness about halfway through eating the yogurt (so I'd consumed about 350 calories at that point). Does that mean 350 calories is too much for me? =( I know it's not good to eat when you're full, but without snacking, 350 calories doesn't seem like much for one meal. I could have eaten 250 calories at one time and eaten another 250 a few hours later and I wouldn't have felt this sensation at ALL, but eating all 500 at once produced fullness in me. I just remember hearing many times you should walk away from a meal feeling NOTHING and if you feel anything you ate too much.
