1. I, personally, take it slow. I just eat what I want, and if I feel like over indulging, I do it. If I just feel like eating normally, I do it.
2. I go for cheaper, less healthy stuff. I know, I know. It's probably not good... but. I'm cheap.
3. I feel sick/get sugar crash a lot, to be completely honest. I'm hoping I... grow out of it?
4. It can be, depending on how seriously you take it, and how much stress to gain you put on yourself

just what i've noticed :)


Okay, I don't identify as a feedee but tried to gain a number of times (health reasons, curiosity, negative attention at low natural weight, partner's preference) and failed. I have always wondered if successful gainers are just predisposed to weight gain or just incredibly determined. Some questions for those who actually do gain:

1. Do you need significantly more calories or find yourself eating more in order to maintain the extra weight?
2. When actively gaining or maintaining, do you have a bigger food budget or do you choose cheaper but less healthy high-cal foods instead?
3. How often do you feel physically sick after a large meal after the buzz goes away and how do you deal with the sugar crash?
4. Isn't gaining and weight maintainence stressful?

I have a question for the feedees out there: how many of you feedees have absolutely no inclination to gain weight but just enjoy feeding for other sensual reasons? Whether it be the feeling of being full to the max, gratification due to the quality and taste of the food (like a foodee), the intimacy of being fed by your partner, etc? I think discussing some of these elements to feeding could be enlightening to the folks that just don't understand where you're coming from. I am definitely a feeder but weight gain is not necessarily the goal all, or really any, of the time.

I'm indifferent whether I or my SO weight gain or not ( I work out );but, I love food. Heck not only eating-but, being in the kitchen cooking- the smells - it's all good in my opinion

Damn you and your ability to cook!

*shakes fist*

Oh well, guess there is comfort in being able to take someone to a lot of good restaurants :)

Maybe I shouldn't answer this as a guy but I found this strand very interesting because I am somewhat of a feedee and certainly a gainer on occasion.

1. No. I easily maintain extra weight without extra food intake. But I also am not very active physically, i.e I'm pretty lazy ...
2. I have to admit, I love junk food, cheap high-cal foods, so that's my first choice for gaining. For example, a large Cream Pie Shake and Popcorn Chicken from Sonic make the ideal commuter afternoon snack and do wonders for your expanding waistline :eat1:
3. Never, really. Sometimes it's uncomfortable right after a huge meal but a half hour nap on the couch fixes that easily for me. I guess i'm very "oral" and stuffing my face till I'm about ready to pop is an immensly pleasant sensation for me.
4.Absolutely not. It is much more stressful for me to not eat than to eat.

THE COBB SALAD

"One night in 1937, Bob Cobb, then owner of The Brown Derby, prowled hungrily in his restaurant's kitchen for a snack. Opening the huge refrigerator, he pulled out this and that: a head of lettuce, an avocado, some romaine, watercress, tomatoes, some cold breast of chicken, a hard-boiled egg, chives, cheese and some old-fashioned French dressing. He started chopping. Added some crisp bacon -- swiped from a busy chef.

"The Cobb salad was born. It was so good, Sid Grauman (Grauman's Chinese Theatre), who was with Cobb that midnight, asked the next day for a 'Cobb Salad.' It was so good that it was put on the menu.

"Cobb's midnight invention became an overnight sensation with Derby customers, people like movie mogul Jack Warner, who regularly dispatched his chauffeur to pick up a carton of the mouth-watering salad."

Since 1937, more than 4 million Cobb salads have been sold at Brown Derby restaurants, according to the Brown Derby Restaurant Group, which, now that the two original Hollywood restaurants have closed, is what the company calls itself. It licenses the restaurant name for merchandise (including bottled Cobb salad dressing), as well as to Disney, which opened a reproduction of the original Brown Derby in Orlando, Florida, in 1989 and, in 1990. signed a 20-year agreement for Brown Derby restaurants in Tokyo, Paris and Anaheim, California. You can read all about The Brown Derby and its glamorous customers in The Brown Derby Restaurant: A Hollywood Legend, which includes many of the Derby's recipes.

Footnote: There's also a legend about how the Brown Derby got its name: One night, Herbert Somborn, an ex-husband of Gloria Swanson, remarked -- speaking of the mood of Hollywood in the roaring 20s -- that "You could open a restaurant in an alley and call it anything. If the food and service were good, the patrons would just come flocking. It could be called something as ridiculous as the Brown Derby." Hence, a restaurant shaped like a hat opened near Hollywood and Vine in 1926.



Cobb Salad

1/2 head lettuce, about 4 cups

1 bunch watercress

1 small bunch chicory, about 2 1/2 cups

1/2 head romaine, about 2 1/2 cups

2 medium peeled tomatoes

6 strips of crisp bacon
2 breasts of boiled chicken

3 hard cooked eggs

1 avocado

1/2 cup crumbled Roquefort cheese

2 tablespoons chopped chives

1 cup (approximately) Original Cobb Salad Dressing



Cut lettuce, half the watercress, chicory and romaine in fine pieces and arrange in a large salad bowl.

Cut tomatoes, bacon, chicken, eggs, and avocado in small pieces and arrange, along with the crumbled Roquefort cheese, in strips on the greens.

Sprinkle finely cut chives over the Cobb salad and garnish with the remaining watercress.

Just before serving mix the salad with the Cobb salad dressing.


Original Cobb Salad Dressing

Makes 1 1/2 cups

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 teaspoons salt

3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon dry English mustard

1 small clove garlic, finely minced

1/4 cup full-flavored olive oil

3/4 cup salad oil


Blend all ingredients together, except oils. Add olive and salad oils. Mix well.

Blend well again before mixing with salad.

A note from the Brown Derby: "The water is optional, depending upon the degree of oiliness desired in the dressing."

Okay, I don't identify as a feedee but tried to gain a number of times (health reasons, curiosity, negative attention at low natural weight, partner's preference) and failed. I have always wondered if successful gainers are just predisposed to weight gain or just incredibly determined. Some questions for those who actually do gain:

1. Do you need significantly more calories or find yourself eating more in order to maintain the extra weight?
2. When actively gaining or maintaining, do you have a bigger food budget or do you choose cheaper but less healthy high-cal foods instead?
3. How often do you feel physically sick after a large meal after the buzz goes away and how do you deal with the sugar crash?
4. Isn't gaining and weight maintainence stressful?
1. I've always been fat, and I've always naturally eaten a large enough amount of food to maintain my current weight or unintentionally gain. It's never a struggle for me, it happens naturally.
2. I have never actively gained more than a small amount of weight, but as for maintaining, I don't necessarily plan it out. Whatever happens, happens. I'm broke so in general I try to mooch off my parents as much as possible and eat 89 cent tacos from Taco Bell.
3. I've felt physically sick often enough to make me be careful. I hate that feeling. I just remind myself that it'll go away soon, generally even if I go a little too far, the pain wears off within a half hour or so and I feel okay. I don't really ever get a sugar crash.
4. Not for me, as I let it happen naturally.

I have a question for the feedees out there: how many of you feedees have absolutely no inclination to gain weight but just enjoy feeding for other sensual reasons? Whether it be the feeling of being full to the max, gratification due to the quality and taste of the food (like a foodee), the intimacy of being fed by your partner, etc?

I wouldn't say I have absolutely no inclination to gain weight, as it does interest me, but since I'm not currently trying to gain I focus more just on the eating itself. Those elements are definitely a large majority of what appeals to me about feederism.. the idea of overindulgence/gluttony is enough to get me going, generally. However, I'm not really trying to enlighten anyone.. especially in this thread! ;)

1. Do you need significantly more calories or find yourself eating more in order to maintain the extra weight?

No. I've always been chunky and throughout my life I have always gained 10 to 15 pounds each year. It was not voluntary. I noticed that for no reason at all I would go through a severe increase in appetite. This usually happend in the fall -- September, October -- and would continue for weeks, sometimes months. Attempts to stop the gain only made my appetite more savage than it was originally. When all was said and done I usually gained about 13 pounds from the incident and the weight never came off despite my appetite's returned to normal. It has been a yearly occurrance to the present day.

2. When actively gaining or maintaining, do you have a bigger food budget or do you choose cheaper but less healthy high-cal foods instead?

I supplemented my food intake with daily treats: A brownie, cookies, ice cream, a milk shake instead of soda, chai tea with heavy cream. I did not change my diet at all other than including one of those simple daily treats. Once I stopped this supplementation my weight usually returned to what it was previously unless the weight gain was a natural occurrance due to the happenstance described above.

3. How often do you feel physically sick after a large meal after the buzz goes away and how do you deal with the sugar crash?

Not very often. My situation is complicated by an unknown food allergy that I am trying to narrow down. This allergic response was triggered once the law forced restaurants to stop using trans fats to prepare food. It is inconclusive at this point though. Because I take small steps that are barely noticeable in the big picture the gain is pretty much straight forward and painless. Including protien with sweets usually does much to stave off sugar crash. A bag of nuts seems to balance things out nicely.


4. Isn't gaining and weight maintainence stressful?

No because the amount of food I eat is normal for me and my weight is normal for me as well. My brother is tall and underweight. He eats more food than I do and is far more indiscriminate in what he eats than I am. His weight never goes up yet my hands and ankles swell just watching him eat a plate of home fries. He *should* weigh what I weigh at the very least but he doesn't. Sometimes it just boils down to what cards we've been dealt in life and we have to make the most of it with what is right for us. The concept of a one size fits all formula is a myth.

Whoops! Sorry. I guess it's just my naturally pessimistic nature bullying its way through. I'll try to be better.
