I eat at least 3 big meals a day and I feel like a freak compared to everyone else I know. NObody eats as much as I do. My baby's mother could eat a hamburger or a burrito and be good for the day. My coworker can skip breakfast and eat a tiny ramen noodle thing for lunch and be good.
I can go eat breakfast, a big lunch with co-workers and be hungry at 5 when they probably don't even eat again. I have always been skinny So I think I need to eat a lot and plus I love food. I think that is why My UC can be controled by diet. If I eat smarter and less I see good results, but I always get hungry and eat too much or too late or not too healthy... Like today I have already ate breakfast and a handfull of raw almonds at 10am. Am I eating too much or is everyone probably not eating enough or is every body different? I think My eating is very compulsive and a lot to do with will power, but I am skinny so maybe my body really does need it. But Maybe I eat so often my metabolism is always running at high speeds and would slow down if I didn't eat so much. I don't know.
