Overeating problem

By HappySkinnyGirl


I have a problem with overeating. It’s hard to let go of old patterns of behavior. I used to work in shifts, and every time I got home I used to gorge myself no matter what time I came home. I don’t work at that place anymore, but I still carry on the same eating behavior. I’ve such a craving I can’t even stop myself. I eat even though I’m stuffed.

Sometime I think I’m after the rush the food can give me, the feeling of relief and satisfying. Have you seen lemurs biting on millipedes video clip? The millipede release substances that are drug-like and those Lemurs get all high and gooey! I’m feeling like that sometimes.

In the past couple of days I’ve tried to pinpoint the overeating problem, when do I usually overeat. It usually happens after 8 pm. I just don’t eat a little but a lot! According to many experts, taking supplements is a good idea because our bodies may be in need of vitamins, we don’t get much food as we use to and besides we do exercise more. I did try it once but it didn’t help me much.

This week I’m experimenting drinking a glass of soluble multivitamins for women at 7 pm, 1 1/2 hour after dinner and before my cravings start to kick in, and so far it works wonder! My craving scale went down to like zero! I hope it’ll work throughout the week, that would be so great! I’m not planning to take those vitamins more than a week though, I think that eating a pomegranate will work out just fine too.

What have you tried in the past to curb your craving? Do you have any suggestions? Part 2: train your brain to think like a thin person.

    Maybe this helps, at least it helped me during my diet: I was completely addicted to chocolate, completely!
    As I started dieting of course this had to stop so I supplemented with – fresh grapes.
    I had always enough grapes at home and whenever I ‘needed’ chocolate I ate grapes. They are nutritious as well and help the digestive system.
    That was about 3 years ago and I still have grapes around me and hardly have chocolate anymore.

    I am exactly the same and I am working on the triggers and the emotions behind it. I think I’m going to get over this by using EFT (emotional freedom technique), which I’m just starting to study. I know I will lick this problem – I am committed to healing!

    I am drinking a lot of herbal tea, especially in that half hour before a meal. It fills me up and I am making a point to sip it slowly and really enjoy it.

    The vitamins sounds interesting, though. I will have to check that out.

    Stress, depressions, whatever emotions extreme emotions we may have can sometimes cause us to overeat…

    I have a problem with overeating too. I seem to just eat when I’m bored, even if I’m not hungry. Therefore, I just try to keep myself always occupied with something.

    I drink tea! When I want to eat for the sake of eating, I drink a hot cup of tea. Then I feel satisfied. Green tea also helps in burning calories. Apparently if you drink 8 cups a day, you can lose 300kcal. That’s same as what you will lose by jogging…

    Coffee always kills my appetite. I also eat fruit – bananas are substantial enough to ward off the hunger – for a little while anyway. But coffee is the major thing for me.
