A Feeling of Lightness
Eating until you feel lightness is more about energy than satiation. It is about clearing out feeling of slowness, lethargy, and grogginess.
I notice this in the morning more often than later in the day.
After I get a little to eat in the morning, I can think better and have a little pep in my step.
That means something other than eating until I feel full. When that happens, I will feel slow and lazy soon after.
A light feeling from eating comes with a small meal that is just enough to ignite the fire for the day, without burning up too fast.
For myself I find that one soft boiled egg, a handful of muesli with almond milk and a almond milk latte, or black coffee will do the trick.
Figuring It Out
I stumbled on this idea of lightness instead of fullness from wanting to feel ready for my day and not ready to go back to bed.
I thought my meals either needed to be jam packed, or real low in calories.
Instead of thinking about calories I decided I would consider how it made me feel.
If a handful of raw spinach, with kielbasa and an apple was not going to cut it, I had to find something else.
I tried two eggs with toast, or just muesli. Neither cut it. When I put them together I found I only needed one egg.
How Full Do You Stay
When I eat to feel light, I expect to start to get hungry in about three hours.
I plan ahead for this. I know what I am going to eat next.
It may not be prepped and ready, but I know where it is located and how long it will take me to fix it.
Have you ever experimented with eating to feel a certain way? If so, how did it work for you?
Have a great training session. Cheers!!
