First off, I'm not bashing IF, so hold your negs..
Lately I've been noticing that if I don't have a meal over 1,000 calories, I feel so hungry. I've had a few occasions where it was physically impossible to eat a large meal.
Example: every Sunday night, my wife & I have a parenting class with our Sunday school group & there's snacks. I've tried eating a big meal before & after but nothing seems to help. I literally can't pay attention because of hunger pangs.
Now, I can go nearly all day without getting hungry but it's like my mouth is a food slut. The second it gets food, it's expecting a lot of food.
Last Sunday, I had My big meal right before & didn't eat the Snacks, but really wanted some.. It was like I was depriving myself only because I'd rather go without than a 300 tease...
This is basically just a rant & I'm sure you guys want to say "if isn't for everyone" or "OP is a phaggot". Like I said, not bashing IF, just frustrated on what my diet has become.
I've gone back to 3 meals & a snack but its only been a few days so I can't tell if it's going to work.
Thought about having a"grazing period" where I can get my calories in without "meals"
- Anyone else feel like this?
- If so, how did you change?
