Do you eat till you feel full?

I have been reading some magazines and it mentions that many of the celebrities don't eat till they feel full. They usually eat 60% or 70% of the fullness so that their tummy won't pop out. What about you? Do you eat till you feel full. I usually eat till I feel very full, because I don't eat often, I just eat the normal meal, and therefore I think it's important for me to feel full and be able to sustain till the next meal.

I think it depends on the food. I know it is healthier not to eat so full. However, if the food is so delicious. I will make myself so full:) Besides, it also depends on the time. If I am in a hurry, I can't eat much as I eat slowly. If I eat it fast, I will feel very uncomfortable. So the option is to eat less in such kind of situation. I love China

I am trying to do that right now since I am in the verge of trying to gain more weight. I am just less than 5 pounds under my height and weight marker and I want to look great as well so if there is a chance to eat more then I'll do whatever I can. Yet on the other side, it is not just eating whatever I want and of course not to neglect the bad eating habits or merely eating every bad foods out there. There are temptations but at least not all the time.

well, i was doing that too, many years, but i found out that i can live in the same rithm if i`m eating less on every meal. I think that i eat the same, but i eat more meals /day. It`s known that we shouldn`t eat untill we are full. We should eat just for losing that feeling of hungry. Now, since January 2009, i eat more meals, btut less on every meal. I feel so good!

I love to eat so YES I eat till I'm full and then some. Sometimes I eat more just because it tastes so good. I guess I could never make it as a model.

I am definitely one of those people who eats until I feel full, because whatever it is that I am eating is so good that I really don't want to stop eating it. LOL My husband is a great cook, and likes to make sure I am good and stuffed.

I have a terrible habit of eating till I'm too full...then I feel sick and uncomfortable. I've been working on eating less and am just now learning portion control. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

Yes.What you read is true.You should leave some empty place in the stomach while eating.This is a healthy habit.I usually eat 3/4 s of my stomach so that i can movie freely and be active throughout the day.

Ideally, one should have at least a glass of water before meals, so that he will feel full and would not eat as much as he would have without the water. Personally, I never eat until I'm full when it comes to dinner. I like to have a light dinner so that I can get up early the next day and have a good sleep. But when it comes to the lunch, I usually do eat full. Sometimes I skip the breakfast and those days I really eat a lot.

I never eat until I'm full... well, unless it's Thanksgiving. I love the food so much and I can only have it once a year, so I try to pack in as much as I can :P Other than that, no. I don't like feeling really full. It makes me feel uncomfortable. I usually eat until I'm not really hungry anymore or until I stop shaking (from low blood sugar :P).I like eating small portions, maybe 6 times a day.

i eat till i feel more than full. that is why i have gained so much weight. i am trying to eat only the right amount of food now no matter how i feel whether still hungry or not. i just like eating now. but i am trying to be more health conscious cause my stomach have grown so much . it is bulging and it really shows even if i wear a large shirt. i can't hide my stomach that much any more i am really surprised how fast i get fat these past few months. though i think that i don't eat that much but i am getting fat so fast. i am trying to recall how i eat in the past when i am thin so i will be think sooner. i am trying to eat only choice food like those healthy foods with no fats or just minimal fats. i noticed that the more i eat vegetables the faster i get full. but i need to wait for 30 minutes before i feel full.

it depends. when I am in good appetite and the food is something that I love so much I eat till I am full. if not, I just eat till I am not hungry. I know tho, it is not healthy to eat till you can't handle another bite. if you are concerned about your health, you should just eat till you are no longer hungry. eat fewer every time and eat more often.

i eat a lot,almost full when i go to some restaurant or if i am in a party.but usually during my lunch and dinner i prefer to eat about 70% of what i can.This helps me work more and efficiently.a full tummy usually results in a quick sleep which i tend to avoid.

i usually eat until im like 85% full. i eat a small breakfast and usually a full lunch and dinner. this is then usually followed by a small snack after dinner, before i sleep if im still hungry. i usually exercise for two houses, so i dont have to worry about that big belly

I have!! seen,notice many experts telling what should we do in order to become healthy!! "please take these,that and those and so ever" but why is it that mostly I observe that those people fallowing the correct lifestyle are those keep on going to hospital having tremendous sickness!! that why I consider eating food is depends on what we used to eat! in terms of time, and other! because how if the doctor change your lifestyle on eating I believe it could lead to your own problems!!!!

I eat till i'm full i think most of the time.. sometimes i may only go 75-80% or sometimes even less... it depends on how i am eating. if i am only eating a few times a day i will eat more fuller meals but if i'm gonna be eating a lot of things through out the day then i eat less.. my belly pops out all the time lol i love to eat but i hate it when that happens. always makes me feel fat and i have to wait till the next day for it to go down lol

Hi my friend. I used to eat until I get really full when I was younger. But since I had my kids I just noticed that I don't have the same appetite or craving or whatever you call it. I just eat now until my hunger is gone but not necessarily until my tummy is bloating.
