Dr. Graham.

Do you feel that a person eating 80/10/10 should have to stop eating before they're satisfied to maintain a lower body weight?

What if eating to complete satiation caused weight gain every time? I'm not talking about weight loss here, but that they can't even maintain their weight when they eat until they don't have a desire to keep eating.

Assuming that they're not eating for "comfort", not hiding from an emotional issue, and that they're not going through any sort of processed food withdrawal and are actually experiencing hunger, shouldn't they be able to eat until they're not hungry anymore without gaining weight?

I find I'm in that situation. I'm a 6 ft 2 inch guy who is very active, and sometimes my hunger tells me to eat around 3,500 calories. I've done this for a few weeks at a time sometimes, and I've gained almost 10 pounds, and it's not all water weight. There's fat in there.

I have to restrict my intake to keep myself from gaining weight. I find I'm in this cycle of giving in to hunger and eating more, and then having to restrict again.

And I'm eating more than a pound of leafy greens a day and I'm not eating many overt fats. I get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. I exercise almost daily.

Do you think I should just throw in the towel and get fat, maybe in the hope that my metabolism will eventually speed up?

What would you suggest?
