This may sound counter-intuitive but I have to agree and say it might be that you're not eating enough.  From the sound of it, it doesn't seem like you are. I know for myself, sometimes I don't realize when my body needs more food/beverage. I may feel satisfied but then when I stand up I feel all dizzy - it's a clear sign that I'm not eating/drinking enough.

Smaller more frequent meals might help.  I eat 8-10 times a day with supper being my biggest meal.

You are most likely more disciplined.. I go places I should not.. the only safe place is home..  

BUT today I am going to try another new thing   1 tablespoon of olive oil.. a day.. to get things moving and feel satiated??? I have no idea .. but worth a try..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I nibble all day long.  I usually eat small meals.  When I eat a big meal it slows me down for a while.

My caloric intake is pretty much stabilized by now.  If I eat or drink too much one day I find myself naturally consuming less food the next day or two.

What influences my weight is exercise.  I am more active in the summer so I usually drop a few pounds.  I’m typically 5 lbs lighter by the end of summer than I am by the end of winter.  Although this year if I do that I may drop down too low.  My winter clothes were baggy on me this year because I only gained 2 lbs.  My summer clothes fit right now so they may be too big by the end of the season because I’ve already went down a lb.  This is my average weight I’m talking about, I can fluctuate by 2 lbs if I’ve eaten a big meal and haven’t fully eliminated the waste.

Gatherers tend to be prediabetic which indicates an intolerance to carbohydrates.  It would therefore make sense to eat fewer carbs and to replace those calories with blood sugar stabilizing foods like butter- if SWAMI will let you eat more fat you should.
