I never had to stuff myself on high-carb (okay, except when I had strong compulsions, I went way, way, way, way beyond satiation sometimes and really used up the available space in my stomach and that was much). Carbs alone never would have worked but one eats plenty of protein and fat on high-carb normally. I totally did. My food intake still was “respectable” but I never stayed hungry on high-carb for sure (except on my yearly Unsatiable Hunger day)! Maybe that’s why I am so used to satiation that can’t handle not having it. If I am not satiated at 3am in the bed, I get up and eat. And that’s way outside of my natural eating window and sounds so sad but what can I do? I NEED satiation, basically all the time (sometimes it’s okay without but only when well-fasted and feel good).
I don’t even know what it means to be full, it’s such a strange wording to me. Sometimes I feel full, usually when my stomach is completely empty. But I am usually in trouble when I am really full as it means I am probably (very) hungry…
What does it mean, “full”? Stomach? Belly (stomach is the organ to me, IDK why it’s the belly in English, apparently)? Just some feeling?
I rather use “satiated”, it’s more clear to me. It has nothing to do with volume in my case, I am no volume eater.
Not like I have any idea about the fullness of my stomach, I just don’t feel it. I only feel when it’s stretched to its maximum capacity but it’s almost impossible to do (did a few times when I consumed very much water quickly. once did it with food. Wet, low-cal food. But I almost always ate dense food).
It was nice but only happened in my early carni times I think (keto did nothing regarding that). I nearly always can eat more. Well that’s good I suppose… And I do have a nice satiation easier now, that’s even better.
I have this with “egg” or “meat” though, I can’t eat another bite. And I am usually hungry then and need “something else”, it’s my bane, the main reason I go off. (Off carni, usually, not off keto as well.)
