A few years ago I was very meticulous about eating 6-8 meals per day and counting calories. I hated it.
Then I heard about IF and did that for about two years. BUT i began feeling like it was building unhealthy eating habits, I began feeling like I was just binging-eating-binging-repeat. Not only does this feel like an unhealthy way to go about eating but it draws sort of weird attention to me when I eat with friends, especially women.
Now I want to transition to eating 3 normal sized meals per day, BUT i am having an insane amount of trouble doing that because at each meal my body becomes insatiably hungry and makes me feel like I need to eat thousands of calories in anticipation of a fast. Then I end up feeling like I should fast to restore equilibrium and try again the next day, but it has not been getting me anywhere.
I know this is probably not a common problem because currently everyone is trying to do the opposite and begin IF, but any input would be appreciated.
