The one thing that SLD seems to help us all with is thinking less about food. You will become less and less obsessed. Cravings will diminish. I get the odd one here and there, but for weird foods that I never used to like.
My 7 year old son has a very small appetite and is skinny like a rail. Mind you very energetic and healthy, rarely sick. He almost never is hungry, doesn't eat until he has been awake for at least 3-4 hours. He does llike several foods, is a little picky at times, but He is very in tune with his body. I will give him treat foods and he will leave some on the plate saying, I'm done, not hungry anymore. How could anyone leave 3 bites of a chocolate bar or cake on a plate? It used to drive me crazy, how was he able to resist the gluttony of finishing the last bite?
I finally understand the feeling, it is like shangrila has made my system back to what it was when I was a kid! I used to be like him and somewhere down the road between puberty and adulthood, I guess all of those burgers and fries and softdrinks caught up to me and whacked out my satiety signals and set point.
I never got really overweight but have had to battle cravings and a few excess pounds all of the time.
I am now 35 and hoping too that the battle with food is finally over forever.
