I knew that “slightly full” meant that I had to take off my belt, “moderately full” meant change into stretch clothes, and “painfully full” meant that the only position I could get in was horizontal. Those are the full sensations, right? Well, not anymore!

Full is a very polite feeling that leaves you bursting with energy. Now you are going to be a new creation—made in the image of the Creator and following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. The new definition of full is “just satisfied,” but the stomach is not extended, nor even slightly uncomfortable. You feel energetic when you finish breakfast and lunch. Yes, you might feel less active in the evening, but that is more due to a long day of work. It is appropriate to let the body digest the evening meal, but you will no longer eat so much that you pass out on the sofa after dinner. This new life will leave you with much more energy. The way God made the human to eat can be seen in the children. They are ready to run and play after a small amount of food.
