The Need for Food

So much of my overeating goes to being bored and feeling “the need for food.” Last Friday I had the opportunity to start my first day at a retail shop. I had a green smoothie around 9:50 am and didn’t eat a snack till 2:30. Although I don’t recommend this, I realized how full and satisfied with my meal that I didn’t need to eat more for breakfast. The problem with not eating that long was my starving stomach at 3:30 when I was able to eat some food. It made my meal timing off, and my stomach couldn’t tell if it was hungry or not when I ate later in the day.
