How to Instinctively Stop Eating

Ori Hofmekler

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.

Older Muscles, More Protein

A study performed at the University of Texas found that muscles of older subjects assimilated 60 percent fewer amino acids from protein than younger subjects. That means you need more protein as you age, but usually just the opposite happens: The older people get, the less protein they eatówhich could explain the tremendous loss of muscle that occurs from middle age and beyond. For health and muscle maintenance as you get older, up your aminos.

According to an article in the May í06 issue of Prevention, lack of selenium may be a source of joint problems. Scientists at the University of North Carolina determined that by looking at subjectsí toenails. Those whose nails contained the most selenium were less likely to have osteoarthritis in either knee. Recommended daily intake of selenium is 55 micrograms. Check your multivitamin-and-mineral supplement to make sure youíre getting enough. Good food sources include Brazil nuts, eggs and tuna.

Creatine and Satellite Cells

If aspirin were discovered today, it would be tightly regulated by the FDA because of its profound effects on the human body. Thank heaven we donít have that kind of regulation. Now letís look at creatine. If creatine had been ďdiscoveredĒ by Big Pharma rather than a supplement company, you know it would be regulated tighter than a noose around a calfís neck during a rodeo. Talk about a supplement that seems to help a little bit of everything! You can take it to increase muscle mass and strength. It also helps those with neuromuscular diseases and improves cognitive function.
