For those of you that don’t follow my blog I’ll let you in on a not so secret, secret, I am not naturally thin. Not by any stretch of the imagination. In fact I’m pretty big, but am working on it so it’s all good.
In my mission to loose weight I have tried every diet and ‘life style’ change you can possibly imagine. One phase I went through (this shows sheer desperation) was Paul McKenna “I can make you thin.” Which consisted of a book and DVD your meant to listen to at least once a day. It’s sad I know.
A lot of what he said made sense but the one thing that stuck with me is why naturally thin people are thin. After discussing this with a few slim friends I have come to the conclusion that he is right.
Naturally thin people are thin because when they are full, or have had enough of what they’re eating, they stop.
It’s so bloody simple but so true. One of my friends gave a great example, she said her best friend had cooked them a beautiful dinner. Her friend gave her a big portion, she ate about half of it. She said even though it was really yummy she stopped because she was comfortably full. She explained to her best friend that although she loved the food she couldn’t finish it, her best friend (who is over weight, this is no shade what so ever) said “I’m full too but I’m going to finish it.”
Right there is the simplicity of it! If I’m full I will keep eating. If my slim friend is full, she will stop.
Boom mind blown
I would love to hear in the comments below what you think of this theory?!
