A doctor told me to eat my meal only until I feel 3/4th full. The logic being that the stomach takes time to absorb the food and the brain takes time to register that fact and the signal that I have eaten enough, is registered 10 to 20 minutes late.
Somehow, my stomach doesn't really seem to agree. While it is true that if I eat only until 3/4th of until I feel full, after a while I don't feel like eating. But it is also true that around half an hour after the meal I feel hungry again. At least to me, it doesn't make sense to stop eating early. In the first sitting itself if I eat until I feel full, then I don't feel hungry for another two or three hours.
So is it just a myth or is it worth stopping to eat when one feels 3/4th full?
