    Snacking 50boiledcabbages because the title is too short

    Post by chris c on Wed Aug 26 2015, 21:31

    Usually I eat a small breakfast and then nothing or not much until any time between late afternoon and late evening when I have my main meal. Then I might have a snack or two later.

    Recently I've been alternating between being active - long walks or feeding the garden through the shredder - and sitting indoors watching the rain and eaither reading on the computer or in books, or catching up on bills/paperwork.

    Strangely I'm noticing that on the inactive days I seem to be having to stop and snack. This is the exact opposite of when I was on the low fat diet, when I'd have to carb up every couple of hours when I was active.

    Has anyone else noticed they eat more when they do less?

    Yep that's probably down to having time on my hands not forgetting I need to snack between meals anyway. Different when I'm working I get so engrossed with the job at hand I end up having meals later than intended

    Yes that's what I was thinking. Then I had a second idea, maybe the exertion one day makes me hungrier the following day or the day after that. I'll take more notes.

    Either way it's just an "I think I'll eat something" rather than the dread carb-based MUST EAT NOW OR I'LL DIE!
