How do I know I’m full?



Recommended Posts

I’m 2 weeks post op from gastric bypass? My NUT told me I’d probably only be able to eat 2 bites?!? I’m eating more than that. How do I know I’m full? I don’t want to screw up this whole process 😥

If you don't have a signal (I never did until it was too late) try to never eat past the recommended amount for your stage example

1/8cup, 1/4cup, etc...

Better safe than sorry

Safe Journey

I don’t know either until it’s too late (5 weeks out) so I stick to the recommended amounts (1/4-1/2 c)

I don't necessarily feel full either. However, we shouldn't be aiming for full. You don't want to stretch anything. We should be aiming for satisfied. I don't really feel anything. So as suggested, I measure my food and only eat that. The times I think nbn I feel full, the feeling is in my chest. I'm happy because I don't have a gratifying feeling from eating anymore. I have an "I ate" feeling.

I’ve never had a full feeling that’s why I was concerned just my NUT said 2 bites of course I wasn’t thinking her two bites and mine weren’t the same lol. I’m using baby spoons.
I’ve started measuring everything and never eat more than a 1/4 of a cup and sometimes stop before that if I get a tight feeling in my chest. Thanks everyone!

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂

        Your progress with weight loss is awesome and so is your garden! I think you should've became a horticulturist. We've really gotten into gardening this year and it's darn good exercise. Keep up the good work and I'll keep watching. :D
