New Eating Habits

Is anyone out there dealing with changing eating habits from grazing to meals?

Before diagnosis I couldn't eat a full meal without getting a stomach ache, and I was chronically light headed so I'd eat sugary things as well. Now I don't have those symptoms but I can't seem to shake the habits.

The whole thing was a lifestyle change (in more than just food) for me.

I craved sugar (ate a lotta candy for carbs/calories) when I changed over b/c I wasn't hungry... or if I was, all I wanted was sugar.

After months now of being gluten-free, I'm getting used to the changes and learning to eat more. Sometimes I force myself to eat a "big" meal (big for me is still small... I can be full on a burger (no bun) or a bowl of rice w/egg (maybe about a cup to cup & half of rice). I've noticed I eat less and less often, not feeling as hungry as I used to now that I think my body's getting healthier.

But there are still plenty of times all I think of doing is eating crudites, corn chips, popcorn... whatever's sitting around & easy to eat "right now" and whenever I happen to pass or think about it. It's a gradual change... take it in small steps. I still am. :)

But I still enjoy every now & again a "dinner" of just popcorn - one of my fave snacks! No more a "no other option" meal. ;)

Hugs!

Grazing is ok, but I'd try to give up the sugary things (unless it's fresh fruit, since you'll get good nutrients and fiber.) And yes, I had a hard time sitting down to a meal for the first few months. It gets better.
