    It's exam period... and I'm always so hungry. Today I have eaten over half a loaf of bread (fresh baked yesterday in tescos-la brea olive bread), a risotto, a shortbread cookie, a cappuccino, a hearty leek and potato soup, porridge, 2 squares of dark chocolate. All this and I'm still hungry!!



    I'm a skinny girl...

    Nothing to do with studying. You just eat a lot.

    You're probably not hungry, just bored, and eating passes time, and if you're eating a meal, you don't have to study. That's what it is for me, anyway :P

    Procrastination...

    to me all that is, is:
    Breakfast:
    porridge,

    Lunch:
    a hearty leek and potato soup,
    half a loaf of bread,

    Snack:
    cappuccino
    shortbread cookie
    2 squares of dark chocolate

    Dinner:
    risotto.

    That isn't really that much... Maybe the amount of bread is pushing it but still not that much.

    Pfft, they recommend a 30g serving, I've got a huge bowl... fill it with at least 400ml of milk, and god knows how much Crunchy Nut.

    Moral is, eat as much as you can.

    Perhaps you are subconsciously procrastinating, as you will have to stop studying to go make and eat snacks. :p:

    You're not drinking enough water.

    You think you feel hungry, but you are most probably thirsty

    I do that too. Because if i'm eating it's an excuse not to study. Which is bad because then you have to sit on a chair for god knows how long rather than burning off your binge at the gym.
