if im already full my tummy tells me. its a bit anxiety inducing once i know im too full. that could be the reason why i stop. however when others tell me to eat more I can do so with no hesitation. it may have something to do with following orders by older people but im already full why did they tell me to eat even though im full? to avoid eating more i simply decline the offer and say that im already satiated to the bone. how about others?

I can eat my favorites more, no matter my tummy is full or not. I noticed myself, eating my favorite pasta more than what i digest. Its just the taste make me go on. On the other way, i cannot eat some thing which is not tasty and once i am full, i cannot continue any single piece. I believe some are strange like me?!!

Yes i can eat though i am full. But it's up to me. If i want. My mother is very good cook and she always cooks so testy food for us. Sometime the curry so yummy then i eat more though i become full. But i can do it's only in my home not any other place. And i also can't do it if any body force me. It's totally up to me.

sometimes i eat more when i'm already full especially when i'm eating one of my favorite dishes. during that moment i don't feel any hunger but i just want to taste more it. I know that's not good but i can't help it ha ha! but i don't do that anymore because i'm maintaining my healthy weight. :)

right, even though the food is only small, it packs a lot of taste and as we taste more and more we feel like eating too much but actually its still few.

yes it is like our body is difficult to move after eating too much. but sometimes we have to eat more because the work will drain our energy and food must be able to replenish that lost energy. thanks for response.

No, i can't eat more if i'm full. I'm not a big eater in normal time it's why i'm too thin and it's really make me angry to have a so little appetite... I wish i can eat more and with more appetite...

dont worry. some studies say that eating less is more healthier for the body and fasting is even recommended. if you are thin then you are sexy. there should be nothing wrong with that. only you have to eat enough so that you will not feel weak.

Ya I can eat. When I am in a challenge with my friends then I do it. But there is a thing that I want to share with you. I have seen many of friends have a digestion problem when they are full. But I have not faced this type of problem at all. In fact I haven't faced any problem till today due to eating.....

I think there's a difference between feeling full and your stomach capacity. Feeling full is your brain telling you that you've had enough. THere are times when I don't feel full and want to keep on eating but can't because my full stomach is about to burst open. My relatives are the same way. "Eat, eat, you haven't eaten enough, eat, eat!" It's their way of showing love and care. They also feel happy and satisfied when people enjoy their food.

Indeed its something of them that you always have to expect. thats why i get ready by eating slightly less because im now sure they will tell me to eat more by the meal time. Its such a confusing moment when Im taking enjoyment from my full stomach and they still tell me to stuff more.

I do not eat more when I'm already full. But, just last week.. The three of us eat out, we ate at " eat all you can "since its new so we try it. The food wasn't tasty, after eating one plate, I filled another one for my son, we pay for it anyway but my son just only eat a piece of chicken. We didn't know that there's an extra charge for left over, so we forced to eat the left over to avoid the charge. he he. unforgettable experience ever. ha ha

haha lol. what you see is what you get. i am quite impressed by the food establishment that require you to eat left over food. just the story makes me feel hungry now lol. thanks for sharing and have a good day.

Sometimes I force myself to eat everything on my plate even if I am full - particularly if I am in a resta8urant and am paying for the food lol...but I always wish I hadn't when I finish stuffing myself. If eating at home I normally stop before I get full or/and serve a portion that I know I can eat so that I go back for more it required.

yes its not correct to not eat the food you paid for. now thats a driving force on eating further. if one has to eat a lot just visualize you paid for it lol. thanks for sharing ms rosetaylor

I know how you feel.When there is family gatherings or meet up with my friends,they often ask me to eat a little more,even though I am already full.However,I find it embarrasing to refuse them, and it always made me feel unwell,my stomach was quite uncomfortable.I don't know how to deal with it,I just try to eat a bit slower,and to eat as less as possible........

so true, i have trouble saying no for fear that they'd see me as self-denying when i do not oblige to their request to eat. but Im not giving in either especially when its not only me who has to eat the food being served. although at times i feel guilty for making stupid excuses just to avoid it.

Hi cowboyohell, I cannot eat more when i am already full, Sometimes even my parent and others tell me to have more in that situation if i have still more then i feel drowsy and moreover it doesn't get digested fast for me if i have more. Have a great day.

in most situations if i am already full i cannot eat . since we wont be able to eat since we are already full . but sometimes i will do eat a bit even if i am full when the most favourite item or food of mine is available at that time . but at the most times i will wait for some time like 1 hour or so even if my favourite item is available and then only eat because its very tough to eat if we are already full

me too I cant even raise my spoon anymore but if the food is of my favorite I prefer to eat it since the good taste keeps the boredom of being full away for a moment.

If i'm already full I can't be able to eat more and if I eat I will vomit because It's not possible to keep all food inside the tummy.

like what I said i vomit the food after drinking but another time was when we were on a trip to Manila. when the journey is yet to begin I ate a hotdog bun. a few highway curves later, I felt nauseous and vomited the poor bun.

I remember when we had a visit to relatives in a nearby barrio when the food served were all tasty and mouth watering. I had the chance to fill my bag until I could eat no longer but then some brutes invited me for a drink. I did around five shots? Not sure but god I never thought it would make me vomit all I have eaten!! I felt uncomfortable and sweaty so I went to the jeep and at the drivers seat I reached for the outside at the door and there dropped all I have eaten. A passing woman took a look although she was disgusted.

If i'm already full then i never eat more because if i eat then i will start vomiting and i cannot digest food also.

right and understandable. its only difficult to eat more when theres no more space for food. the technique that i did to survive eating very much is to be hungry at some extent. that way i can eat and eat without feeling full again. thanks for response rated +

Well, my friend. My stomach confirms me when I'm totally full with satisfaction. There leaves no scope of stuffing a grain again how mouth-watering the meal may be. If I do that by force, I'm sure I'll feel uneasy. Moreover it's unhealthful even after being satiated to the bone. Those who have this habit, their stomach grows on and on turning him into a large sack. I usually decline the request of eating again when my stomach is filled to the brim. Have a healthy eating.

I stop eating when I feel full. I can never eat after that..I strongly believe to stop eating once after I get a feeling of fullness.
