I used to be addicted to feeling full. My girlfriend can attest that, before this, I used to be unable to go to sleep without eating something in order to not feel hungry. It was probably costing me a few extra hundred calories a day which, over time, definitely helped me put on a few pounds.
This has changed a lot. This is my second fast– I haven’t eaten in almost 24 hours now, and feel totally fine with the ‘discomfort’ that occurs from being hungry. In fact, I’m more comfortable with hunger than I’ve ever been in my life. It’s almost relieving.
If you’re interested in finding out more about how I’m doing this, I recommend looking at Brad Pilon’s blog— I’m following what he wrote in his book Eat Stop Eat, which was super informative. I’ll probably blog about it a few more times too, as I adjust to it and see what effect it has on my system.
