How we sabotage our health

Thanks, Nkour. This was a great post and a good reminder that we have control over what we put into our mouths and should not let feelings or occasions dictate our diet. I'm sorry you lost you wife and I'm impressed by your ability to keep taking care of yourself while also grieving. Thanks for sharing your inspirational wisdom!

Nkour thanks for this post. Much food for thought. Kdd1125 good idea to write down your personal goals, dates and if you reached them or not. I'm going to do that. I've joined several challenges but never really quite reached my goal. Looking at your post help me to see that challenges are good but by writing it myself it becomes my own personal goal.Smile

Binge Eating - a venom!

Hi Coffeebiscuit

I too have been known to binge eat. especially when it comes to candy and cakes.

Are you logging everything you eat on your food diary? Keep proper track of everything you eat every day. Yes even those cake slices and pastries. This way you will "see" what you are eating. It will show you the calories and once you mentally see what you are putting into your body you will see why its bad for you and your diet.

Also if your current food diary is correct then you are eating way too little. No body can survive on too little food. When you eat so little your body (and brain) loses the ability to say no when you are faced with food and you over eat because your body needs nourishment.

Try eating proteins like eggs, and cheese and veg and at least 1 fruit every day. The fruit will assist with giving you something sweet during the day.

You are welcome to look at my food diary. Its not perfect but I have found my cravings are MUCH better the last month since I have just cut out sugar completely and eating more regular meals.

Do yourself a favour and Google "Hungry for Change" in the internet. I know it's available on Netflix and available for free viewing on YouTube. Its a big eye opener on sugar and how addictive it can be.


This is so true. Another tip. When you record all of the food you eat especially the highly processes snack food focus in on the nutritional content. What I've found is when it comes to the vitamins and minerals for most of these types of foods they are almost always filled with zeros. This might sound crazy but it I came to a realization of what the phrase "Empty Calories" means. More often than not it means a whole clot of calories for little or no nutritional benefit and more often than not slow bodily harm over time.Smile

I hate it when I binge eat. I was doing so well this week, and today that crazy power took over me and I ate 3 huge slices of cakes and a number of pastries, at one go! And for no apparent reason. I wasn't even hungry. I'm disgusted with myself, I even felt disgusted while I was eating. I don't know what drives me to have this sudden urges, and even worse, to allow it to control me. Is this normal? Does anyone have crazy urges or certain power that takes over your brain that makes you decide to buy a whole lot of stuff and eat them all at one go, for no reason? Any ways or tips to overcome it?

I definitly do. I've been recording everthing for over a year. I've had many successes but also some crazy binges. I'm continuing with the struggle. I've found that writing down everything I eat everyday has proved to be an eye opener. I no longer ask myself why am I gaining weight? I know when and why it's happening. If you want to see the ups and downs of my struggle feel free to take a peek at my diet entries. Try recording evrything it may help you to get some incite as to why you eat the way you do. Don't feel bad it happens. Neutral

sing4theLord you sound so much like me. I've been on Fatsecret for more than a year and what I've found is no one thing works for me. But I have found that there are several diets or eating plans that I like and that have given me a measure of success. I say a measure of success because I almost always slip back into my old patterns but I have not given up. One thing that I have done is record what I eat everyday including exercise. Even if that exercise is as simple as "Sitting or Driving". This has given me an idea of if I would gain weight or lose weight. I also maintain a public journal. Some people only record when they are doing good but I think when others can see a full picture maybe they can see somrthing that will help them. I've been as high as almost 200lbs but I find that since being on Fatsecret I can no longer deny when thing are out of control and I can stop it before it gets too bad. Keep up the fight. As long as you dont give up you won't lose.

The Truth About Exercise
You are right. You can eat what you want but within reason. Not anything you want how much you want any time you want. I'm living proof of that. I need to balance things out. I do much better when I control the types of food I eat most of the time. I think what it means by anything you want is an occasional treat every now and then but not without restraint.
