Just to give information my story in short form: I am in recovery for over a year and due to eating 2500+ I gained back to my old weight (maybe I'll gain a bit more, that's alright, but it's most likely to be my set point). I can rely on my hunger cues for a few months, they are very stable. I'd consider myself at almost completely recovered (both mentally and physically).
But since a few days I feel suddenly stuffed from my usual amounts. Like I eat the same portion of oats every morning, and suddenly I am stuffed halfway through. I feel full, satisfied, totally not hungry anymore. The same happens with lunch and dinner. Even after smaller amounts (I thought maybe they're too big for me because as I said, I eat after my hunger cues and if I eat less at lunch, my snack will be bigger etc.) I feel stuffed, and I absolutely have no clue why. I don't eat too fast, I don't drink too much while eating (as much as usual). The fullness usually lasts for 1-3 hours and then, poof, I'm hungry again (depends on how much I ate before).
I haven't been that much of a big eater pre ED (especially not breakfast!) so do you think it could be possible that I am on my setpoint AND back on my old hunger/fullness cues? Should I have smaller meals? I am not asking to restrict (I still eat proper amounts, dw!), I just don't like the feeling of fullness that lasts for hours because I NEVER felt like this. :/ And I am just... confused. Did any of you experience the same or do you have any advice for me?
Sending lots of love
