How to Get Fuller Faster

Eat less.

So, I won't leave you with just that. But, really, I have a way to feel fuller faster the natural way. You don't have to buy any diet pills to make yourself feel full. This will just happen in the natural course of restricting your calories.

Besides, who has money to and who wants to buy a pill when you can do it yourself?

Today is the 10th day of my diet. And in the last day or so, I have noticed that I have been getting fuller faster than 10 days ago.

As you eat less food, your stomach will begin to shrink.

I haven't mentioned this yet, because I didn't want to scare you off or discourage you, but I have had hunger pains in the last 10 days. But they've been disappearing because my stomach is shrinking as it's adjusting to the smaller amount of food that I'm putting in it.

On a positive note, this is making it easier for me to maintain my calories because I'm feeling satisfied when I eat.

So, what do I do with hunger pains?

Well, I acknowledge them for what they are. Hunger pains. Then, I decide that losing weight is more important to me than hunger pains.

At first, when I first started counting calories several years ago, I felt a little scared at the idea of experiencing a hunger pain, there were some emotional triggers associated with that, like deprivation, sadness. But the more I thought about, and picked apart the whole hunger pain sensation, the more I realized that a hunger pain was not impossible to get through. Think about menstrual cramps, if you were to compare the two...I would wager that a menstrual cramp hurts more.

But the difference between cramps and hunger pains is this...cramps happen every month for a few days, while hunger pains happen for 1 to 2 weeks and then fade away.

And with menstrual cramps, you don't lose weight, but with getting through a hunger pain, you eventually meet some positive weight loss goals.

It's also good to keep in mind, that you're still in control of the situation when a hunger pain happens. You can eat if you want. There's no one forcing you to do this. And, if you can't get through it this time...don't sweat it, there will be plenty of next times.

Do what I do. Eat a bowl of filling cereal, and you won't be hungry any more.

But to be at this point... where you are deciding to eat versus feeling compelled to eat is a huge success in your effort to gain control of your eating and meet your weight loss goals.

Good job!
