    As I write this I'm preparing myself two big cheeseburgers slathered in mayo....

    Does anyone else sometimes feel like as they are getting fatter after they eat? Sometimes I feel like doing a quick exercise before or after I eat so I feel less guilty about eating.

    Still having issues with food, I see.
    Why not just one cheeseburger?

    Moderation.. eat slower....

    Most people eat too fast... theres a delay between the stomach and the brain.. often we are full before our brain realizes it and cuts that "hunger feeling".

    Perhaps next time... before the 2 cheeseburgers... start with a salad.. then have 1 cheeseburger... You may find yourself to be more comfortably full.

    Its all about the veggies! Our digestive systems required fiber and most people don't get enough.

    A "quick exercise" will not burn off the calories from two big cheeseburgers. I think you'd have to jog at a moderate pace for over an hour and a half to do that.

    If you're concerned about weight but at the same time feel compelled to eat so much, you've got some serious cognitive dissonance going on and might want to see a health professional.

    To answer your question, generally not, but sometimes after I eat something really salty I do. Also coffee sometimes makes me feel bloated, but I know that's just because the caffeine is inhibiting my hunger.

    Substitute the Mayo for Spicy Mustard.
    Get rid of the buns (Useless Carbs)
    Get rid of the cheese.
    Load up on Lettuce, Onions, Tomatoes, whatever vegies you put on your burgers.
    Eat with a fork and knife.

    There you now I have something that is much healthier.

    back in the days when i was a kid, that was the problem. i was such an overpicky eater that i would put the entire dinner in the garbage. when i couldn't do that, i would put it underneath the rug in the living room. when my mom found out, she whooped my ass. i started doing that bs around the 3rd grade. at one point, i remember being in the 5th grade and weighing only 70 pounds from literally starving myself and all. all that didn't stop my bad habit until i kicked myself out of it when i was 15 years old.

    I think any of us can relate to an extent. Sometimes I've felt that way even after having a candy bar (and knowing that with all my exercise this wouldn't have any impact since I don't do it frequently).

    For me, life is about a healthy balance. While a "big cheeseburger" might be something I'd do once in a blue moon (doubt if I could or want 2 of em).
    My history is never to eat very large meals... holiday meals can be a little bit of a challenge because I'm not used to eating big plates of food.

    I think its developing a pattern of good eating and if you occasionally eat something out of the norm, common sense should prevent any guilt.
    The problem for some involves making unhealthy choices too often.

    One really bad habit I have is that I snack a lot! I would rather be eating a bag of chips than a proper meal, so I've often felt like how you feel a lot of times. But then, I just think about my fitness goals and what I wanna look like at the end of my phase and that really helps with the self control.

    My point is, don't do something you're gonna feel guilty about later because that short amount of joy you get from eating just isn't that worth it.

    Burgers without the bun and lots of veggies and smaller amounts of condiments is perfectly fine.

    It's all about habit. You can change your eating habits. It might help to try and think about what you're eating as fuel and building blocks instead of something that makes you 'feel' good. Use exercise for that instead. Why put more fuel and nutrients in your body than you need?

    Doing some exercise before and after you eat probably won't burn off all the calories you'd get in even one bite of a cheese burger. But, on the other hand, if the exercise gets your endorphins moving then maybe you'll won't need as much food to feel 'satisfied'.

    Making these shifts can take months or even years but they're worth making not only for appearance but overall health. Most of us eat more than we need to. Our society programs us to do it. Consume, consume, consume.

    So? Still delicious. Rad's advice was right on point. You have to get used to using every opportunity to eat better, so it gets to be a habit.

    I feel the same way, it sucks; but I guarantee that if you ate a good-sized salad INSTEAD of those two burgers (slathered in poison), you feel SO much better about yourself. When you'd start making healthier food choices, you'll stop feeling guilty about eating.

    Once you start eating healthy and you make it a consistent thing everyday, you start to find the pleasures and satisfaction of good quality food.

    I don't. If you are paying attention to your daily calorie intake you can eat it IIFYM.

    note: it's a little more complicated than that.

    You know as I was reading this I thought of something 'why do I keep buying this stuff?' and by that I mean junk food and fatty foods. I know I'm just going to regret it later. I guess I've gotten into the habit of thinking 'as long as I workout a lot afterwards I will be fine' but I'm usually so sluggish afterwards.

    Lol and I don't put anything on my burger besides cheese and meat....like god intended, lol.

    Mashoga, you look very good in your new avatar pic and I think it worth maintaining that. There are excellent topics about diet and nutrition that might assist you.

    TheGuyNextDoor saidReally? 2 cheeseburgers? Why?
    Sounds like something Clay would do...
    Unless you got the genes to pull off the 2 cheeseburger min. I'd rethink that....icon_eek.gif
    Just from a health standpoint!

    How bout' you at least cut both burgers in half and only eat only 1/2 a burger every 4 hours today. Portion control and frequency is your friend, unless you want to look way older than you are really fast!


    I have all this beef and cheese in the house so I figured why not. I'm making two more as I write this.

    I think two of my problems is that I'm stressed out more than usual lately and I stay up so late that my body never gets time to rest. Even before lockdown I never went to sleep until like five or six and then woke up at seven or eight. My body is just weird I guess.

    Thanks and I've been trying to maintain it. But everytime I eat I feel like I'm getting super fat all over again. I tried eating once a day but that failed because my body requires more calories than that I guess. I workout like everyday and yet I still feel large. I can see the results they just aren't fast enough.

    The way that you look at food is distorted, and, part of your illness, and, ultimately what will kill you.

    You need to work with a professional that specializes in eating disorders.

    Normal folks don't want, nor need, two cheeseburgers, which are loaded with sodium, and saturated fads, and TMAO. In general, you should not be eating much red meat, at all, because of the TMAO, the saturated fat, and the current state of your health.

    You need to change your relationship with food, with an understanding that it's not all about satiety, but, also about nutrition, good health, long life, feeling good, and exercise performance.

    Like a smoker, you are in denial about the ill effects of the food, and you don't understand the value of moderation.

    A professional will help you to learn how to correct that viewpoint on food; teach you how to eat in a nutritional way, and perhaps get to the underlying cause of your illness.

    You're sick, and..you're killing yourself, albeit slowly.

    You can't eat like that if you expect to live a long and healthy life.

    Instead of whining, you need to research nutrition (in particular blood sugar management, and the hunger response). Spend your time in a better way than poisoning yourself.

    You need to STOP. NOW.
