this might sound like a dumb question, but are you the type of person that eats even if you are not hungry or only eat when you are hungry? i'm sure you may know someone, or it can even be yourself, that only eats when they are hungry...but i really dont understand that. for myself, i would always make sure i eat my 2-3 meals a day (lunch and dinner for sure, but sometimes i dont have time for breakfast) regardless if im hungry at that time or not. i find it crazy that there are some girls out there that can eat a 'huge' lunch and then not eat dinner because they are still full from their lunch! i know that eating less helps with maintaining weight (but i also think that it screws up your metabolism) but i also know that eating regularly (like 5 mini meals a day) is even better for weight control.... but what are your eating patterns like?
