I was listening to a radio show today with Susan Jones Smith...an author and expert in nutrition. She said that the way sumo wrestlers gain their weight is to starve themselves all day and then feast at night....it puts on weight quickly!
Oh my...I feel a little sad....for my struggle for years and years has been night-eating ....I got to the point where I gave up "dieting" because I could be great all day and then 10-11 o clock at night, I would eat....not huge quantities, but a sandwich (sp?) or bagel...some kind of pasta or bread. I always insisted that the quantity of food I ate was not excessive...that my intake of calories DID NOT match my weight....I fear it may be this sumo wrestler effect! It makes sense but makes me sad....;o(
Oh well....now that I know better, I need to do better!
I feel like a light-bulb has gone off in my head! I am seeing the light....it both scares me a little and strenghtens my resolve.
