Here is an interesting article I just read at <a href="http://live.psu.edu/story/25987?nw=4" target="_blank">http://live.psu.edu/story/25987?nw=4</a><br><br><br>

One of the reasons this article intrigued me is that I would classify my husband as a "competent eater".<br><br>
He has always been a healthy weight. He enjoys food and has never "dieted". He has a good idea of how much food is "enough" and rarely eats to the point of being uncomfortably full.<br><br>
I have seen him take a few bites of a dessert and say "this is too rich, I can't eat it". To him, overly fatty foods just don't feel good... it's not about calorie restriction, but about bodily comfort.<br><br>
I want to be like him when I grow up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Hm. That is interesting, altoids.<br><br>
I think I fall in between competent and incompetent.<br><br>
I tend to go overboard with popsicles, as you may know.

I think I'm pretty competent. I only really indulge to the point where I'm uncomfortable when I go to a really good buffet or when I go out for sushi.<br><br>
And I want to comment that being a competent eater isn't just about not eating too many calories, but also about eating enough calories. Not being comfortable with food, and avoiding food, is dangerous. A very good friend of mine has lived off a highly restrictive diet and it's catching up with her in the form of som health problems that her doctor suspects is because she's had been underweight most of her weight.
