I read years ago that research showed that people who eat until they're not hungry anymore weighed less than people who eat until they're full. There's also some amazing new research focusing on how the bacteria that live naturally in our guts affect our lives, including obesity, diabetes and other diseases: You Are Your Bacteria: How the Gut Microbiome Influences Health
The bacteria in our gut already plays an important role in digestion. But new studies indicate that our bacteria could play a major role in whether or not we become obese

Vitamin D is found in few dietary sources.[1][3][58][61] Sunlight exposure is the primary source of vitamin D for majority of people, other than supplements
The link above lists some foods with Vitamin D:

  • some kinds of mushrooms
  • fatty fish
  • beef liver
  • eggs

I'm glad to know that - thanks. The thing is, because of multiple complex medical issues, I'm deficient in a lot of vitamins and minerals. My body does not absorb them properly. But I don't have cravings for foods containing all those things - particularly not mushrooms or liver!

I think cravings are more likely to be related to emotional issues than physical deficiencies.

You know, it's kinda funny. I seldom get a craving for vegis. But, if I haven't been eating my vegis, as soon as there are some on the plate I automatically start eating them first and eat more of them than when I have been eating my vegis.

By the same token, if I have been eating soft foods for a few days, like spaghetti or other pastas, or fish and mashed potatoes, I start to crave something crunchy. I think some of it has to with a desire for variety.

I'm fine, thank G-d. Trying to cut on Sugar to begin with. The hardest part is cutting bread. I am always hungry without bread. I love it. I can live on bread.

Great tip Addie, thank you! I will plan on that next time for sure!

I fall off the wagon from time to time and I find that each time it happens I learn a little something about the triggers that cause it to happen.

Thank you, Aunt Bea. We have been getting ready for a rummage sale this weekend & it was just feeling overwhelmed w so much to do. I got in the gym for 50 mn total on the elliptical & bike, now I need to get to aqua chi class at 5 45. Something light for supper tonight!
