    I don't tend to pig out just because it's free, I take it to mean that you CAN have it freely but don't HAVE to. I'll just eat until I am satisfied and thats enough for me.

    Yep *holds hand up* some days I don't seem to stop but it's rare. Normally around * week when I never feel satisfied. I'm definitely not eating as much as I did before SW though so it's not the end of the world.

    It is not about quantity of food but eating so you are satisifed.

    i do feel like i am eating more than I usually would. i mean...before i would only eat twice a day. 1 would be somehting awfully unhealthy but quite small then the 2nd would be loads of takeaway or some-such. im eating more on SW now but obviously its much healthier and satisfying but yeah... i will admit that i feel more like a piggy even though its better stuff. I just think no one else wants to admit to eating and eating and eating but thats how i feel a bit :D

    Well, right or wrong, I know I do make a pig of myself on free food, sometimes.
    Until starting SW I barely had any appetite, and discovering all these new tastes and textures had been a revelation to me! lol So, yes, I have eaten more in the last 2.5 years than I probably did in the 10 years previous - no joke! But I'm three stone lighter as a result ;-)

    I admit I ate and ate at first, but defo still lost. Over time as I got lighter I started concentrating on portion sizes and recognising hunger. This worked well as just when my losses started slowing I started eating less.

    I now have 3 meals a day and rarely snack - just because I have noticed that my meals leave me satisfied enough not to eat for the sake of it.

    It works itself out over time so don't stress about it too much- you have to learn to relax around food and not demonise is- this is the beauty of SW

    I am eating more than I used to - think I am keeping the strawberry growers of GB in business - I love the fact I can eat fruit without feeling naughty - I was on WW so it feels fantastic! I do find I am fuller quicker though

    Im an ex-wwer as well and i love being able to have fruit when i want it and any fruit ie. not avoiding bananas 100% and hello peas and sweetcorn! :D

    I think eat as much superfree as you want/can, but go easy on free dont just eat it for the sake of it being free.
