  • So sometimes all I want to do is eat.?

    And it lasts for hours- sometimes the whole day- and I'm not necessarily hungry. I don't know how to deal with it? "Just not eating when you're not hungry" just isn't helpful advice, but it seems that Depression is rolling in and it's becoming a real problem.

  • How do you force yourself to diet to lose weight when you are used to eating until you feel full?

    Best answer: The trick is to have a meal away from TV, PC, and people -- just don't talk and don't listen. Focus your attention on the food. When you take a bite, think of it as something special entering your mouth, as something that will become part of your body, part of you, respect it because it's a source of your existence.

    Slow down the process of consuming one meal -- try to do it over 20-min period, chew each bite 40-50 times, taking in the taste of the food and enjoying it. The catch here is that the digestion process starts in your mouth and some nutrients are absorbed and get into the blood stream directly, which will give the signal to your brain that you are satiated much earlier than if you swallow big chunks without chewing them up.

    After about 20 min, the carbohydrates while being broken down and converted into sugars (glucose, fructose) will be getting into the bloodstream, which will induce your brain to give you the feeling of satiety. Try to consume whole-food carbs as they will be fed into your bloodstream for longer.
    The digestion of meet, dairy products, and eggs happens in a similar pattern. Protein (as well as carbohydrates) stimulate the small intestines to produce the hormone cholecystokinin that stimulates digestion and decreases hunger (cholecystokinin and other satiety signals decrease the activity of the hormone ghrelin that stimulates hunger).

    Contrary to what many people say (eat in small portions, have snacks in between) I would recommend to give your digestive system 3-4 hours to finish its job of digesting the last meal before starting over again. You don't want to start the process again before the previous cycle hasn't been finished. Instead drink water between the meals.

    Make sure your food is really rich in nutrients and is not just full of 'empty' calories. It could be that your body demands proper nutrition, but you give it 'junk' food, so it still demands more.

    While I understand that your stomach may have increased in size, you should still try to consume no more than the volume of two of your fists (or even better not more than 75% of that).

  • Is fruit really that bad for you?

    It's got lots of sugar in it. Believe it or not, fruit leads to weight gain. Vegetables, fish and water are where it's at.

  • How can I survive not eating or drinking before surgery?

    Okay, so I have a surgery coming up in a few days and I have to spend the first 7 hours of that day not eating or drinking anything. I think this is near impossible for me but how can I overcome this.

  • How does everyone feel about multivitamins?

    Best answer: Some people need vitamins but alot of people incorrectly jump on every other vitamin that has a claim to help something. If say St John's wort says it helps memory because a study showed 5 of 30 people who took it had remembered 3 more things after taking it than they did without taking it.

    Best answer: Some people need vitamins but alot of people incorrectly jump on every other vitamin that has a claim to help something. If say St John's wort says it helps memory because a study showed 5 of 30 people who took it had remembered 3 more things after taking it than they did without taking it. This guy will then take 12 pills a day before midterms. If he has knee pain, instead of stretching and getting new shoes, he'll buy a joint health pill. and on and on.

    Multivitamins are a blanket that will likely hit something you're missing but you are pissing out the rest. Most actually leave out things like vitamin A because people have accidentally killed themselves overdosing on it in multivitamins. So you're still possibly lacking vit A or else getting poisoned.

    This one sounds like it has keratin and or collagen. Maybe vit E associated with skin and nails. Others may have not or not in quantities or types that you were able to absorb or lacking or containing other things that allowed or dis-allowed absorption. Without regulation and proper testing, all we can do is speculate.
