Are you comfortably full after you eat? By “comfortably full,” I mean Are you both satiated & satisfied? Full in the gut (no hunger) and full in the brain (no cravings). There is a saying my father uses, “it satisfies like burger & fries.” This is his way of verbalizing how a big meal of fat protein and carbs keep him full for most of the day. And it should since a meal at 5 Guys, my fav burgers, will easily surpass 1500 calories in one sitting.
The idea is to generate that kind of satisfaction without that many calories. Can you generate the fullness of 1500 calories for closer to 500?
This meal started out at around 1200 calories. Put a salad in place of the fries and it is down to 700. Take off the brioche bun (270 calories with no filling protein) & put an @viking.waffles in its place (160 cals with 20g filling protein) and now we are down to 600 calories & better taste IMO.
Sure I could have just wrapped the burger in lettuce, and saved another 150 cals or more, but then I would have likely been snacking on dark chocolate or organic crackers and easily ate another 300 or more calories by end of night.
The idea is to see how full and satisfied you can get yourself with the least amount of calories possible. Sure, we all know you can reduce the calories of your meals, but can you do it while keeping the fullness factor the same? If you can do that over and over again you win. #nextlevelhuman #nextlevelmetabolism #hungercontrol #cravingsolved #metabolism #hunger #cravings #shmecincheck #hecincheck
