Can you eat a lot?

My stomach is very strange. To the food I am not interested, I am easy to get full. However, if it's my favorite food, then my stomach is out of control:) So sometimes people will be amazed when I can eat a lot but I am still so thin. When my friends have a headache to the food we leave, I will tell them not to worry about it. When I put down my chopsticks, that means to say I am really full:)

Hello youless!:-) I think we have same type and brand of stomach, youless!:-) Usually I eat once or maximum twice a day and that too isn't as much as I can eat in the company of others, especially my partner. Before coming to France, whenever food was cooked by my mother or if it was something I really loved, I always had (almost) full, and my full, like you, is quite a broader term:-) In our group of friends, I and two others, were always trusted for not leaving anything on the table if the menu was more than consumable by others.

You are lucky because French food is one of the most delicious and famous food in the world:)

I like my traditional food more than French. Perhaps, if I wasn't away from my homeland for this much time, I would have given french food their due appreciation! It doesn't mean that I don't like french food, I like it. I just like my traditional food more!:-)

I know what you mean! I think when it comes to foods that aren't our favorites, our bodies tell us "YUCK! I don't want that!" so we don't eat very much. But when it's something we really like, our bodies seem to want MORE MORE MORE! And then we end up overindulging. You are so lucky to have a high metabolism. Me? I just LOOK at food and I gain the weight! LOL

I totally agree with you, youless, to any favorite foods which I really love, I will always take as many as I could, till my stomach surrenders. I do take a little only of those foods which do not suit my taste.

I have to admit it's hard to do sports but you can't eat much at the same time.

You are not alone. I can eat a lot of certain food... Sometimes I am looking for new taste and I don't eat much.. There are some days that I just drink a lot, but I don't eat much...

No, I can't eat a lot or it makes me feel sick. My step father in law can though. It amazes me how much he can eat sometimes.

I'm more of a snacker - I tend to eat little and often rather than eat a lot of food in one go. I hate having a plate piled high with food put in front of me. Although it depends on how much I like the food mind you. Give me chocolate or ice cream and I will just keep eating until I physically can't eat any more!

This is a very interesting description:) Do you know actually snakes can live without food for a whole year?:)

I'm kind of the same way. If it's something I don't really like, I'll eat a little and lose my appetite. If it's something like my mom's homemade pizza or cookies, I eat like crazy until I'm stuffed or sick :)

Yeah, I can eat a lot but not always. In order not to put on too much weight, normally I look after myself and pay attention on what I eat. But occasionally I am a big eater. Especially when we go to a buffet restaurant, I won't be care that much. Satisfy my stomach first!!! Hahaha...

In fact I need longer time to eat more, becauase I tend to eat slowly. That's how to enjoy the food.

In fact most people in my family are very thin. So perhaps this is why I can't gain more weight, too.

absolutely feeling jealous with you, my dear friend. you said that even you already eat lots but you still have good weight? oh wow, i wish my body as like you :P. my eating mood is changing time by time. in one day or few days, i have no moods to eat anything, except only drinking water and might be some snacks and in another day i feel that i am so much hungry. but another day, i just only having regular mood to eat, i mean just in usual portion of food, no more than that. usually i would get very hunger feeling (which made me able to eat lots) when i am gonna have my period days.

Hmmm. That's interesting to know, you seem to have a fast metabolism as you eat a lot and stay thin. That's good for you! With regards to eating habits, I eat a lot more compared to my husband. Now, he is almost 6 feet tall and quite heavy. I on the other hand only stand 5'3" and have average built. Strange isn't it? Go figure! hahaha So, I can truly answer to your question, yes, I can eat a lot..(=
