How thin people think

Someone posed the question about how thin people think and if it is different than when you are overweight or losing weight, and if you still thought about food all the time.

I think the question is really the difference between the formerly overweight and the naturally thin people. There are tons of books and articles about how to eat like a thin person. Be intuitive, stop when you’re full, only eat when you are hungry, eat consciously, ad nauseum.

Well, I don’t know about anyone else – but I doubt that I will ever be an intuitive eater. Maybe I just don’t trust myself, but I need to have tight control of what I am eating. That’s why my food is portioned out to what I need, not necessarily what I want. I really never serve myself too large a portion. If I try to let feelings dictate how I eat, I will be back at 250 pounds before you know it!

I will always be the former fat girl who acts like a thin person, I don’t know if I will ever be a truly thin person. I think you can only be born that way.
