Out of th e Mouth of Babe's
A friend noticed I was losing weight and wanted to know what I was doing to lose the weight. I told her I stopped dieting and only eat when I am hungry. I eat exactly what I want and stop right before feeling full. She said, "that doesn't sound healthy at all," and explained how she would talk to her 9 year old son who goes long periods of time without eating. She was worried about his well being. He would tell her he just did not feel like eating and was not hungry yet. She says she always insisted on him eating so that he wouldn't get hungry. To me her 9 year old is still living on instinct. Eating when he is hungry which really sounds natural.
