Great post Eddie!

IF really makes you appreciate food so much more and the rewards of IF provides a spiritual gratitidue.

Thank you Bo. Funny, I was thinking about the topic some more and I thought that as an alternative to writing that IF is great for people who enjoy eating, one might say that IF is great for people who enjoy "gluttony within parameters". Sort of "gluttony-lite". Eat all you want, for awhile, no harmful side effects, in fact, it's good for you. Wow !

All the best,

Eddie

Also nothing like being asked to leave an all you can eat buffet....apparently it's not all "I" can eat....finding a buffet with a make your own plate/hibachi cook is the best discovery I have ever made.....I eat $50 worth of meat and give them $7.....how this place will stay open is beyond me....

I have a Chinese buffet nearby with a hibachi. I tear a hole in that when I go in. But how they stay in business is that few people eat like us MOD. Most people are loading up on the cheap egg rolls (ok, so I have 1 or 2 on the rare occasions I go there), the chicken and pork in sugary sauce, and the desserts rather than the meat, onions, bean sprouts, and a touch of soy sauce.

Exactly!

Brazilian steakhouses (also All-you-can-eat) and AYCE sushi places start to quiver when I'm approaching their doors on Friday afternoon to break the fast...

The sushi places typically bring out a big "boat" just for me...I've totaled my intake to be around $80 before...

You mean Mongolian BBQ? I always have a problem limiting myself to one "meat" and one sauce.

Here is an odd, IMO, aspect of the "window" (ie; feast, gorge, whatever.*) I think some or many people, I confess to being one of them, can feel embarrassed to be seen by others eating a huge volume of food. I think there is often a direct correlation between those feelings of embarrassment and a person's BF%. That is, many overly fat folks can feel embarrassed eating the large amounts they (obviously,) do, in public. This can lead to solitary binge eating.

( BTW, I'm not saying any of the above behaviors are healthy or well, just that they are.)

Well, (somewhat due to IF,) now I am trim. (5'11", 33' inch waist.) So instead of the above, I actually get some weird cheap thrill when folks see me get up for several helpings, or, while they are finishing desert, I'm still mid-main course asking for extra servings, or if there is any more left. "Where do you put it all ?!" they ask rhetorically. Or I just get the look that says the same thing. I don't know why, but I like that. Like I figured out something they wish they knew, as they loosen their belt to give their "dunlap" more room.

*One more BTW. Not every night is a gorge. To my pleasant surprise, that seems to level out. But on the nights when the big hunger is there, it's nice to know I can eat the entire mastadon, without fear that I won't be able to join the rest of the tribe on tomorrow's hunting and gathering.

Ha, this weekend I went to a wedding and went for quad servings of spinach and broccoli salad piled high with tones of turkey to go with it. I was still pounding that down while they were cutting the cake. The looks of wonder I got as they stuffed their faces full of cake...

I have become very comfortable at "served" dinners asking for a second plate after my first one is done--they always have them in the back!

One does have to make sure they ask before dessert is served though...
