Do you remember that old rule that you should wait until you are hungry before you eat and then only eat until you have had just enough food to satisfy that hunger?

Puh-leeze! Who does that anymore?! When you are on the low-carb lifestyle, you get to enjoy so many great-tasting, filling foods that you almost never feel like you’re so hungry you could eat a whole bag of Cheetos!

But when you get to a certain point after being hungry, it’s very difficult to slow down that internal mechanism that says EAT EAT EAT! Do you know what I’m talking about? While the suggestion to “wait until you’re hungry to eat” certainly SOUNDS like good advice on the surface, I believe for some people that is a recipe for disaster and keeping them from effectively gaining control over the weight problem.
