Eating Amnesia Comes In Two Forms.
1. Eating something and forgetting that you ate it and not writing it in the log at all.
-A handful of jelly beans (or any candy) out of the candy jar.
-Three french fries off your child's plate.
-A bite of hot fudge sundae from your spouse’s dish.
-Forgetting you had a piece of bread from the bread basket.
-Not thinking the creamer in your coffee needs to be recorded.
2. Forgetting how big the portion was when you go back later to log your food.
-Estimating 1 tbsp of mayo on your sub, but really squirted on 4 tbsp.
-Writing down a small cookie for 80 calories and it was really 250 calories.
-Thinking your bagel was 250 calories, but it is really 340 calories.
-Estimating that you ate 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes but it was really 1 cup.
-Thinking you only used 1 tbsp of oil to dip your bread, but really soaked up 3 tbsp’s.
Eating amnesia is not conscious and can really be a cause of major frustration for a lot of people who are trying to lose weight.
