    I'm from the midwest, but I recently took a vacation to Denver.

    While in Denver, I noticed that I would only eat 1-2 meals per day, and I felt full for alot longer than usual.

    Was I just less bored than usual, or did the altitude have anything to do with this?

    Well, that COULD be an explanation. Though I doubt it'd decrease the number of meals from 4 to 1-2 per day. Maybe you were eating more? Or maybe you were eating different kinds of food? Finally, maybe the fact you weren't as active - considering you were in holidays - also had to do with that, as it lowered energy consumption?

    Thats a decent hypothesis, except i was walking up mountains, skiing and occasionally running from flocks of lovestruck girls ;)

    which is all way more than my usual "sit at the coffee shop and cram knowledge into my brain" level of activity

    wii fit even says i lost 6.5 lbs.
