    On RRARF, is it necessary to have 3 meals a day? I had breakfast and lunch – both nice and big, and it’s past supper time but I’m totally not hungry. Do I need to eat supper, or is two big meals a day fine?


    If you’re RRARF-ing due to overcoming an ED, you probably should eat something… if you’re in an otherwise healthy state and just trying to listen to your body better… I’d listen to it and not worry about eating.

    It all depends on where you’re coming from and where you want to go.

    At least, that’s my opinion.
    I’m no expert.


    Thanks Tina. I’m not overcoming an eating disorder (unless it’s emotional eating, lol) and I did manage to eat supper each day in the end. Pretty late in the day, but I’ve been eating it.

    Today, day 5 of RRARFing, I am just so stuffed, I don’t want to eat anything – not breakfast (which I did eat – 6 slices of ww bread with butter and salt and 2 slices of cheese) – not lunch, or anything else. It’s 4 pm and I will eat more today, but I doubt I’ll be exactly hungry for it.

    Is this normal? To just completely lose one’s appetite after a few days of RRARFing? And we’re just supposed to stuff our faces anyway? My cravings have gone down, too, so even if you’d present me with a whole lemon meringue pie to dig into, I doubt I’d make too much progress on it. I have gained 3 or 4 pounds since I started, by the way.


    I don’t think Matt recommends stuffing your face any longer. :)

    Personally, I could never handle it. I eat to appetite, to the point where I feel like I might get a little sick if I eat more, but not the point of throwing up kind of stuffed.
