And that's why I don't watch nonsense like this video. She's an idiot if she says that. What she's doing is projecting what maybe SHE can do. But that does NOT work for most of humanity. Not in the modern environment.

People have to become aware of what they are eating an what real portion sizes are, along with imposing some self-control ni an environment that promotes overconsumption. Call that a diet if you wish but that's what has to happen.

Your signaling for satiation may be different than that of an obese person.

I tend to be an all or nothing type of person so it is hard for me to think about going to the gym when I am overeating. Either I am eating right and going to the gym or doing neither. Obviously this isn't true for everyone though...and the people that can overeat and still go to the gym are probably in a better position than myself.

My bmi is 37.2 down from 49 at the beginning of 2013. lol, I am quite obese. Basically since the beginning of 2013 I have gone through cycles of eating healthy and losing weight and binge eating and gaining weight. I am either actively gaining or losing weight at a fast pace either way. I have been staying between 235 and 255 for almost a year unfortunately though.

This isn't about you. So how about you stop projecting YOUR nonsense anymore than the stupid woman behind this video projects HERS.

Great work-and I'm truly glad that increasing your vegetable/fruit intake is an effective strategy for you (as it can be for many people). But the mental signaling around satiation is really complicated and varies from person to person.

As for the gym part, the amount of calories burned in a reasonable-length workout isn't that high and can easily be overwhelmed by eating.

"Eat whenever I am hungry"



I'd be up to 600lbs by now.

And many people that agree with this philosophy are grossly overweight. To some people that don't crave eating a large amount, this is a great way to eat. For people that are already overweight when they start or naturally have a large appetite, it is a great recipe for an early heart attack. Healthy at every size though, am I right????

Well, the game changed for me once I hit single digits. Since then, how I view food is completely different... and it "feels" different. Very weird.
