How do you eat as much as you like?
A lot of the time, it’s because you don’t know where the food is coming from or where it’s going.
“I love eating in the desert,” says Jessica, 28, of San Francisco.
“The food’s just delicious.
It’s not a meal that needs to be ordered or prepared.”
If you’re hungry, it doesn’t necessarily have to be on the menu.
“You can have your own personal food and share it with your friends,” says Jennifer, 27, of New York City.
“And it’ll be perfect.
It’ll be delicious.”
Weighing in with our own food The ideal way to eat in the wild is to weigh yourself regularly and use a scale to determine your calorie intake.
To figure out your weight, you should have a doctor’s note with you so that you can weigh yourself every time you get hungry, and you should also have a log of calories and grams of protein and carbs in your system.
If you don, you’ll have to rely on a few tricks to keep your weight in check.
Here’s how: Don’t eat more than you need to be “It’s really important to weigh your food, because you’re eating it so many calories, and then there’s no way to get your body to burn it off.
That’s when the body will overdo it,” says Rachel, 27.
She uses a scale so she can keep track of her intake and weight.
“If I want to be healthy, I have to eat more,” she says.
“That’s the best way to do it.”
If your scale doesn’t work, use a handheld scale.
You can even use a food thermometer to check your body’s hunger levels.
The more accurate your scale is, the more accurate you can make the measurement, says Jennifer.
“It makes the food feel good to the point that you’re willing to put it back,” she adds.
The way you eat will be affected by your genetics, too.
“Genetics can change your appetite,” says Rebecca, 26, of Washington, D.C. “Some people have very high food intake and will get hungry quickly.
They’ll get really hungry very quickly.”
The best way for you to eat is “Eat slowly,” says Nadia, 29, of Portland, Oregon.
“A lot of people are like ‘OK, it’ll take a couple of days to get over my hunger.’
But when it’s done, I’ll feel great.
It will feel good.
Thats the whole point of eating slowly.
Eat slowly, but have a snack.
Eat fast and feel great,” she suggests.
“When you’re having that time of the day, try to snack as much of the food as you can, and eat with the people you want to eat with,” says Josh, 26.
“Then it’s just eating.
It should be a time of your life,” he says.
You’ll be surprised by how much you’ll be able to eat if you eat in moderation.
If the food’s low in calories and protein, you may be able as much food as a healthy person.
“For a healthy eater, it will feel like a meal.
You won’t have to think about it,” Rachel says.
But if your body can’t burn the food quickly enough to eat, you might be better off eating smaller portions.
“Instead of eating a large dinner and a small dinner, you could eat two small meals and two large meals.
It doesn’t take a lot to eat a large meal,” Rachel suggests.
If it’s too much food, eat small portions and be mindful about what you’re trying to eat.
“Eat small portions, and don’t overeat.
If a meal is too much, it could cause your blood sugar to spike, which can lead to a heart attack,” says Jill, 29.
The food you eat affects your body differently.
Some people like a big meal because it fills them up and makes them feel full, while others enjoy a meal with a smaller amount of food.
“Sometimes, if you’re not hungry and you’re in the mood for a big dinner, it can be a little bit too much,” says Jess.
You might find that a meal in the evening or after you have a bath or shower makes you feel more energetic and ready to go.
“Maybe I’m just not hungry,” Rachel adds.
You may also want to plan ahead, because it’s important to plan meals to be prepared when you need them.
“Don’t be lazy,” says Jacob, 27 of San Diego.
“Make sure you’re planning a good night’s sleep, and get some food before you go out to the office.
You don’t want to end up eating something you donít want to consume.”
