A great post about 100 calorie packs and how people who are dieting or restrained actually ate MORE. Check out this blog! It gets to the point of eating base on INTERNAL cues of hunger and fullness. When we try to control how much we eat by points, calorie counts, or other externals means, we are pretty bad at it.
This is what I’m talking about when I say we can either feed to strengthen and reinforce those inborn cues of hunger and fullness, or we can feed to suppress them. (Trust vs control model…)
