Topic of this week's WW meeting7/17

Topic today was Eating Patterns.
Structured eating- having meals and snacks at the same time every day.
Advantages- Body gets used to being nourished at regular intervals.
Disadvantages- "Life" doesn't always cooperate; you don't get to recognize hunger signals

Unstructured Eating (not unplanned food, just unplanned times)
Advantages-Flexability, can pay attention to hunger cues.
Disadvantage-may go too long without eating and lose control when you do eat

Homework is to discover your eating pattern.
1-write down what and when you eat. Then notice what foods you eat at certain times.
2-Determine your physical satisfaction. That is the key to control
"minimize hunger - maximize satisfaction"
3-make adjustments as necessary.
Also had discussion about energy density. The foods with more water, air and fiber tend to fill us more. Example of a handful of grapes vs. handful of rasins, or popcorn vs. nuts. For the same calorie/point count can get much more volume with low energy dense foods. (this is the basis of Core).

The same here, Pat. Although our meeting topics are
similar, it is obvious you have paid better attention
than I ever do. :)

It is good to have you back!
