i remember i used to portion all of my meals out so perfectly… almost to the obsessive point of weighing my food.
i would sit there and eat exactly what i had put on my plate even if i was full – this must be the italian in me! if i was still hungry, i would sit there for hours anticipating my next meal.
i think my favourite thing about the bulletproof diet is allowing my stomach to make the decisions! if i’m full, i have no problem putting down my fork and saving what i have for another meal. i don’t force feed myself until the point of feeling sick.
the portions aren’t the only thing my stomach decides on. after a work out, i crave carbs! i allow my body to replenish itself of the nutrients and fuel it needs! if i have a portion of protein on my plate and my stomach says “enough”, i listen. i save the rest for another meal.
a lot of the photos of my food aren’t exactly what i am eating because i allow my stomach to make that choice. i’m not depriving myself and i’m not force feeding myself!
