Any tips on trying to diet?
Some of you may have seen my last poll about being a bit overweight. I took some comments into consideration, and want to start to diet because to be honest I eat horrifically. Does anyone know any tips on how to stop eating so bad/so much? When I try not to think about eating snacks or something unhealthy, the thought of eating it and my want grows larger and larger over time, until i can't handle not going to eat that thing. For example, I was watching netflix, and on the show they mentioned ramen. Knowing there is ramen in my cupboards, I felt the urge to go have some, even though it was like 11 at night and i hate dinner just a few hours before (I eat dinner really late). I tried so hard to concentrate on my show, but I kept catching myself zoning off and thinking about eating or looking toward the kitchen. Even in the moments I was focused in the back of my mind I felt the hammering urge to eat. I wasn't even in the mood for ramen and I wasn't hungry!!! I just felt like I needed to consume something. Today I was trying so hard not to eat the pizza that was in my fridge but I felt like it was calling for me so I ended up eating a piece, then another, then another. I had just woken up and I was already eating three slices of pizza, shame on me. I think I might have an eating disorder or something. Anyways, does anyone have any tips on how to not concentrate on eating? I tried imagining if I ate too much because sometimes that puts me off but then I eat it anyway because I have a problem. Someone PLEASE HELP!! I gain 5-10 pounds every six month so in a few years i'm going to be the Michelin man from the tire commercials. Help!!!
