Health Tip: Getting Full Too Quickly

-- If you find yourself only able to eat a few bites of food before you feel "full," don't brush it off as a new weight-loss strategy, the U.S. National Library of Medicine advises.

The NLM lists these common causes of "early satiety," which is feeling full too quickly:

  • Your stomach is emptying too slowly.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome.
  • A tumor in your stomach or abdomen.
  • Heartburn.
  • An obstruction in the opening of the stomach to the intestine.
