Okay, so it's the first week of January. I am pretty much back on track, but after Christmas I had a 3-day food bing/hang over. On Christmas I indulged in some wine, my Mom's cherry pie and a yummy breakfast roll with lots of icing!
Really, overall, not a bad pig out for Christmas...trust me...could have been MUCH worse!
Problem was, I couldn't stop there. The next day, I ate chocolate and almond butter (a new favorite) and candy and general crap. Thought I was done.
Monday morning, crap consumption continued.
My thought, why can't I stop? I really only wanted to enjoy Christmas but couldn't get it together.
Found my answer.
I was looking through an old Oxygen magazine. Apparently a study from the Journal of Clinical Investigation found that eating food rich in saturated fat, just once, can impair your ability to feel full for about three days. (wow..what a coincidence)
Heart-healthy fats make you feel full faster.
So next time I'll just eat a tablespoon of my almond butter and a few dark chocolate chips and call it a day.
Oh, one more thing. I'll be a guest blogger tomorrow on Indiana's Family of Farmers blog. Hope you check it out - thanks!!
