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!!!

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Intermittent fasting is the best way to go TRUST ME!! I used it and I lost 70lb in less than six months. The best thing about it is you can still eat whatever you want, fast food or whatever as long as you don’t go over your recommended daily calorie intake. Search dr Eric Berg on YouTube he has the best information on it. He’s kinda strict with the foods he tells you not to eat but trust I ate whatever I wanted just make sure you eat within your eating window and don’t go over your daily calories. Trust me on this one! You’ll be hungry the first 3 days after that it’s easy. I personally fasted for 20 hours and ate all my calories in a 4 hour window. Again I lost 70lb in 6 months NO EXERCISE AT ALL just being slightly more active. If you add in exercise you’ll lose weight even faster. Like I said watch dr Eric Berg YouTube videos on intermitent fasting.

  • Use a sharp blade (preferably machete or katana) to cut off excess fat in a swift strike.

  • Start to gradually add healthy snacks onto your daily menu. Work your way into eating more fruits and vegetables then gradually cut back on foods that aren't so good for you. Well, I dunno if that is good advice or not, but that's kinda what I am doing. I want very much to get off of high blood pressure medication.

  • Go to a pharmacy or a grocery store or a Walmart. Look for this vapor inhaler called Benzedrex (near the cold and allergy meds) Inside there is a cotton stick, soaked in a methamphetamine analog, cut it up, put it into capsules, and swallow it. You won’t even think about eating for the next 12 hours.

  • Counting caloric intake is the way to do it but dont start out all fast and trying everything in the book. Start out slow. Cut back the greasy food and most importantly watch PORTION SIZES. You dont have to completely change your diet cold turkey, but always opt for the healthier food option, maybe foods that have less sodium, whole grain crackers instead of chips ect. Its all about acclamating to new eating habits so you want to continue to eat the things that are healthy without shocking your body or your tastebuds.

  • This is no lie honest to God trust me on this one... drink lots of water, the more you drink the more you'll get used to it, this makes you feel thirsty and thats a good thing because youll end up loving the taste of water, drinking plenty of water is good for filling your gut and it slows down your eating habits. Water will also smoothen and loosen the crap inside the stomach (taking a dump is another good thing). There is no need to stop eating what you love, as long as You are drinking water with your meals it'll help you and you'll notice the difference. You'll also notice that when you get into the good habit of drinking plenty of water you'll have this energy inside that makes you wanna move such as wanting to workout. My little advice is to avoid Milk and coffee as best as possible.. water is more powerful.
