Do you have the same issue: I almost can’t stop eating until I’m full. My only way to keep from putting on fat is to eat only fresh vegetables, fruit, whole grains, nuts, and food, not doof. Luckily it’s delicious and affordable.
I don’t remember eating at any restaurants that served only food, not doof. They seem to add salt, sugar, and fat to everything, even expensive places with reputations for healthy food. I’ve learned to dislike eating out or packaged products partly because they cost more, don’t taste as good, and take more time, but mainly because I can’t eat as much of them. I would have to stop if I could.
The choice between preparing and eating at home versus eating out or delivery is between eating until I’m full versus trying to stop myself while I’m still hungry. I’ve heard a common way restaurants keep people coming back is by adding a stick of butter to everything. I don’t want butter, so I avoid places that might do it.
Meanwhile, if I cook, everything tastes better, costs less, and is more convenient. So for me, I’d rather eat as much as I can by not having someone serve me. The more I cook, the more second-nature cooking becomes.
