Aging challenge

2:34pm:
I've been struggling with the reduction in my sensitivity to physical things which are the result of aging. For example, I do not know if I am hungry. Or when I am eating if I am full and need no more food.

As a result, often lately I have been eating food that I do not need. My weight which should be about 150 lbs is now 159 lbs. Often I eat only because of the pleasure that I get from eating foods that taste good.

Do you experience these things too?

  1. "Often I eat only because of the pleasure that I get from eating foods that taste good." You and 99 percent of the rest of us!

    I think there are very few people that eat PURELY for fuel beyond top tier professional athletes and people with little access to food.

    1. Hi Barney,

      I gather from your comment that you also struggle with a reduction in sensitivity. Is that right?

  3. carry a notebook, and every time you eat, Mark what you ate, and about how much you ate, and the time
    If you forget refer to your notes
    If you're going to eat for pleasure at least eat healthy , try in season fruits Vegetables and or maybe a trail mix as a snack
    If you use a measuring cup try sticking to a half cup size portions
    (Are you bored ?? )

    1. Hi Ed,

      No....I am not bored.

      I am wondering if you carry a notebook and follow your own comment/advice?

    2. I don't need to,, I weigh the same as I did 20 years ago
      It helps if one like food and I don't
      But that doesn't mean I don't enjoy fine food I just don't over indulge in it
      Most people that overindulge do it for an alternative underlining reason. ???

  6. I have a similar issue George. Documenting helps for me, but it's such a pain. I especially have trouble with tearst. I keep them off my shopping list!
