We (in general, "us Amercians") do eat too much, and could very much benefit from eating a little less. I don't think starving one's self is ever, ever a good idea. But I feel really good taking in just a few less calories every day than I normally would, and I don't think my muscles are suffering. (If at any point I feel starved, I'll adjust things, and eat more. Trust me: Eating is one of my very favorite things!) I've noticed over the last week, that going to bed with just a tiny bit of hunger (not a gnawing, uncomfortable hunger) feels so much better than going to bed stuffed to the gills, as I usually would. I wake up clear-headed the next day, and energetic, and my breakfast tastes delicious. PS: But thanks anyway for the spam.View Thread
