Are you still not full after a Meal???
- 7 Months ago
Undoubtedly, we all eat to feel full, feel good and also satisfy our appetite and taste buds, but a few weight watchers, have this unique concern of not feeling full even after a meal. They obviously cannot go back and eat more, or feel good about the meal they just had at the cost of their weight! If you didn't know, feeling full or reaching satiety is a complex process involving both hormones and the brain.
Just like it takes a few rings to reach someone on the telephone, your stomach needs anywhere between 10 to 45minutes to release cholecystokinin, a hormone to signal your brain that you are full. The release of this hormone and the interaction with the brain isn't instantaneous, and so if you are eating too quickly, your hormones may not be signaling that you are full.
