Why? Seeking an answer !!

Hello, I have a wierd question and I thought maybe someone on here may know the answer or atleast have some idea as to why. The Question is: When I'm home alone (just me and the baby) I can eat a whole plate of food no problems and not feel too stuffed. However If you give me that exact same plate of food for dinner when my boyfriend is home, I can't eat it all, I'm stuffed half way through it and I just give the rest to him or the dog. I'm not doing it on purpose. I honestly try to eat all my food, I feel comfy with my b/f, we've been eating together for years. Why is it that I can't seem to finish a plate when he's home, but I can eat half the house when he's gone? Any idea's on this one? ANYONE?

I think something is bothering your mind whenever he is around. Maybe you are not happy with your boyfriend, because he had done something which you do not agree with it. Try to find the cause of it, and I am sure you must know a little why you are feeling like that when your boyfriend is around.

Gee thats a strange one, maybe you are so in love LOL that it upsets your eating habits, or maybe it is when he is there you just have a lot more on your mind and of course I guess it could be that when you are on your own you are eating as a comfort thing...

There are some great responses here to your question! But one I didn't see here was this: When you are alone with baby, you have no distraction and therefore the meal gets your full attention. When b/f is there, I'm sure you talk, laugh, hopefully still gaze into each others eyes and so. During these moments of distraction, the food you've ingested is being digested and getting you closer to being full. A simple way to see how this works is to make the same meal 2 different times. The first time (eating both "alone"), eat as normal and casually note how long it takes. The second time, make yourself eat slower. Take an additional 20 minutes or so to consume the same amount by chewing more thoroughly and not immediately taking the next bite. Bet you'll see the difference.
