How to Instinctively Stop Eating
For those who have large appetites and donít instinctively know when to stop eating, hereís my answer: Stop once you feel significantly more thirsty than hungry. Thatís when to start drinking. The time to stop eating isnít when you count your calories and say, ďIf I eat more, Iím going to gain weight.Ē And it doesnít come because somebody told you to count the macro and micro nutrients. Stay away from all that guilt. But when your body tells you itís more thirsty than hungry (and it will tell you more and more as you practice the Warrior Diet), that is the time to stop.
Take a break and drink a glass of water or cup of tea. If after 15 or 20 minutes you still feel hungry, you can eat again. You probably wonít be, but if you are, go ahead. No other diet will give you that freedom.
