Interestingly, I have recently skipped the mid afternoon snack with no problem. I do not get hungry mid morning, unlike my coworker and her 6 egg white low fat diet who’s hungry between the 6 meals.
I have also tried the intermittent fasting and I find it quite easy. I do not feel spikes of hunger or energy depletion. Actually, I eat even less than before.
Many people look at me as a fat person compared to most Taiwanese and think I must eat a lot. Truth is as I have pointed out before most skinny fat Taiwanese can eat me under the table…or rather out of a table. Going to an all you can eat place is torture as I simply have no room in my stomach. That is going to be a problem when I visit the old country.
If you observe the amounts of food on a plate you buy anywhere, you will see it is mostly fillers, like rice or noodles or any wheat breadstuff. Very few places will really give you the good stuff. And we overall are simply not eating as many vegetables as we should to have the nutrients and vitamins we need. We can run on fat mixed with veggies. But sugar and carbs as fuel will leave us depleted of nutrients. Many perfectly nutritional veggies are ruined by being overly done in sugars. You overload in fuel…And have no spare parts.
