Default Salad Question

I have been living by the fist portion of foods. In other words, I don't eat more than the size of my fist. I always eat the proteins first and then everything else follows. So here's the question. There are times that I simply crave a salad in between meals. It seems that even with only eating the fist size portion, it doesn't fill me up. In fact the other day, I think I ate about 2 fist sizes. I understand that eating the proteins etc. you fill up faster and the truth is I simply can't eat more than that portion- which is great and fine for me. Again, the only exception is the salad. From a physiological stand point, how is that possible? I thought our pouches can only fit so much.

If anyone can help solve this quandry of mine, that would be super duper. Thanks everyone! I love this place, everyone is so incredibly helpful

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Salad is mostly water so when you break it down 2 fist sizes would be much less. With things like salad I weigh them- 4 oz of salad is way different than 4 oz of meat. (you can't go by size on things like this) So don't fret, I can't imagine you would stretch your pouch with that amount of salad-

Veggies are mostly water. So, if you chew it to mush, the volume isn't quite as much as the original salad. Ever tried to squash a handful of salad in your hand? How small does it get? That's why you seem to be able to eat a lot of salad. No need to worry about the volume there.

feshwe! I got a little nervous... so that totally makes sense. Duh! Ok, I feel so much better. I've worked so hard to get where I'm at and will never return to the life of obesity. Thanks again for the feedback
