[QUOTE=stritle;825256]are you serious?!?!? you don't actually believe that do you?
Without getting into a pissing match yes I do believe this. If your body is saying "I'm full" why on earth would you keep force feeding it just to achieve certain calorie count? I get needing to eat a certain amount of calories daily so that all systems are functioning correctly. But saying to HAVE to have 3500 cals for example no more no less no matter what or you won't achieve your goals is false. If you consumed lunch at 12:00 and was scheduled to eat again at 3:00 but you were still satified from lunch where put more food in you gut just cuz it's 3 o'clock?
We need to listen to our bodies more and not do things cuz "we have to". To each his own but if I'm not hungry that means my body is still dealing with the meal I just ate. Before the information age our ancestors and what not didn't count any cals and I donít think obesity was an issue it is today. They were way more fit than we are today and ate when hungry and not cuz "it was time". Read "Primal Blueprint" and "Paleo Solution" and/or check out marksdailyapple dot com. I don't benefit from any of these sources I am just a regular guy who committed to this way of living and have benefited tremendously from it.
