It seemed like if I was at work & there was going to be a potluck I started feeling full to the brim before I ate. it was always bad a christmas time too, even though I tried to not eat to much.

I also feel full no matter how much I eat. I have cut back to six small meals or snacks a day. I think it does seem to help with the breathing. Lungs aren't as crowded.

When beginning to eat a meal, turn your O2 up about 1/2 to 1 liter- keep it this way for about 20minutes to a half hour after eating, then turn it back to previous setting, it works for me! ✨

I agree, eat smaller portions and at least 3 to 4 times a day. We still have to eat to keep our strength to fight this disease.
