Hi. I'm a 46 year-old, single mom, living in New York. I'm in desperate need of someone to kick my butt! I am a binge eater. I eat until I want to vomit. I can't stop. I do good for a day or 2 then I mess up. I work 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, driving a taxi. I'm up at 6 in the morning and don't get home until 8 or 9 at night. I don't get a lunch break so I have to eat on the go, which usually is fast food. I joined a gym but don't ever have time to go. I try to walk a little bit in between fares but it's just not enough. Can someone please be my buddy and help me? Thank you!

It sounds to me like you have an eating disorder . . . . . please take the time and find a therapist or a support group or something, someone who understands the issues involved and can help you deal with them.

Best of wishes to you.

I second on the therapist thing.

I had the same problem. I realized that I was eating because I was stressed. Now before I eat I always ask myself if I'm really hungry or if it's something else bothering me.
It really helps to talk to someone.
Something you may want to do is before hand size out portions of healthy snacks in little baggies so you don't accidentally overeat.

Thanks everyone. I'm actually going to a therapist and a support group. I'm doing a lot better at not binge eating. I've also been reading a lot about eating healthier and learned that eating more protein helps curve your appetite. Also, by eating a very small amount of fatty foods, like peanuts or cheese, 10 to 30 minutes before a meal triggers a muscle near your small intestine that slows your digestion, keeping the food in your stomach longer, making you feel fuller longer. The human body is amazing!

I just can't eat one chip, I will eat the whole bag. Stress eating too. both of your ideas, the one about eating a little fat 10 to 30 minutes before a meal and portion snacks sounds good.
