I’m trying to ignore the urge to fill a big bowl with food whenever I get hungry and instead choose a small bowl from the outset.
If I can just ignore the strange feeling of panic that it’s not enough I find that, as soon as I start eating, it IS enough and I don’t want more afterwards.
The irrational panicky urge of going hungry as I prepare my meal is really the only unpleasant thing about my diet.
