I confess I don't know if I eat big or "normal" portions anymore. I eat until I'm not hungry. I don't see anything wrong with that. Can you imagine having lunch and still be hungry? I see what slim women on the internet eat just out of curiosity and the portions are small, yet they seem satisfied with it.

I take my thyroid hormones, but I gain weight even eating a healthy/whole foods vegetarian diet, which I actually prefer to eat for my well being. Eating meat often gives me gout pain. But I can't do that because I want to remain where I am (or even 2 sizes smaller because it's easier to shop), with the same fitness level or even better. In a nutshell, I'm quite torn about my nutricional choices...
