It's only been about a week or so that I've been eating well - keeping track of what I eat: 5 grains, 5 veggies, 3 protein, 4 fruit, 3 dairy, 4 fats, and exercising. I used to have the capacity to eat a lot, even if I wasn't necessarily hungry. Well, since I'm having to eat more veggies, I'm full more.
Today I had my lunch, cereal & milk, then I was at the store and thought I wanted more food. So I got a little bowl of soup and a small baguette to bring back to my office. And some tea. I drank the tea and ate a piece of the baguette. Then I didn't even want the soup or the rest of the baguette. I thought that if I ate the rest of the baguette that would be wasting my grain servings and then I couldn't have my angel hair pasta with shredded zucchini and garlic for dinner which is so yummy.
This might not seem like a big deal, but it is huge for me to not just eat everything because it is there.
