stomach whiplash

I love my nutritionist because I learn new stuff all the time when I meet with her.

For example, I told her that I generally am not hungry before lunch – unless I eat a large dinner the night before.  Which is kind of curious because you would think the opposite would happen – that I would be full from the night before – but it doesn’t.

This really intrigued my nutritionist.

You always want to be able to intrigue your nutritionist.

She told me that there has been some research that indicated that this was a more common occurance than not.  (awesome!)

She said that there is a theory that a big meal the night before stretches your stomach and your body works to fill that larger stomach space.

So yeah, there you have it!

I have to say, despite the amazing amount of food that my mom had at Thanksgiving – I didn’t go too nuts.  I was definitely full, but I didn’t have stomach whiplash today.  Small victories!
