Becoming a Vegetarian

Reply

^Yeah I go through periods when I'm just not as hungry. Or sometimes when I was studying when I skipped a lot of meals and then ended up losing my appetite because my body wasn't expecting the food as much.

This is not psycological as explained in my last few posts but I understand why both of you came to that assumption, it would make sense for most cases like this.

It's probably just a coincidence unless there's evidence to say vegetarianism reduces appetite.

It has nothing to do with vegetarianism, per say. It's about your state of mind.

No, you're wrong. I know it's not psycological and it's pretty silly to judge my mental state so confidently.

Haha I can see this turning into an argument lol

Have you been doing less the last few days, burning off less energy and so your bodies maybe not craving as much food?

No, I'm not wrong. It's either psychological or it's physical. And if there's no physical explanation, such as weght loss, it's psychological.

Just ordinary day for me, like any other.

Found this, could possibly explain it:

Plant foods tend to be low in both fat and calories and are high in fibre – which is why they are naturally filling. And this reduces your appetite for high-calorie, fatty foods.

It's physical, that's what I've been saying all along, that is why I know for a certainty it is not psychological.

I eat food when I feel my stomach physically asking for it, this frequency has reduced recently when usually it runs like clockwork.

In that he's eating less amount of food because the stuff he's eating is more bulky and filling. Therefore he feels like he's less hungry because when he does eat it fills him up and keeps him going for longer.

It's probably just down to my diet having more fibre or something, very simple explanation... no need for the physological bulls*t.

Mark, appetite is linked to mood. It is not just a physical thing. Ever heard of comfort eating? It is not just a case of our body telling us that it is hungry. It's also psychological.

James, I know it can be linked to mood but I'm telling you my mood has remained constant, I'm living my life like any other day.

This is physical because I respond based on the physical feeling of hunger, that horrible nasty feeling inside your stomach. It's happened a lot less, maybe due to more fibre in my diet.

Rubbish. Salads are not more filling. They might be more filling than sugar laden foods, but they are not more filling than a proper meal.
