WHY??? and How can i stop this. I’m tired of feeling like crap all the time Help?
Hey Junebug (: I had the same problem.
Generally, I feel it's because I didn't realise the food is going in, and suddenly I felt ashamed and hated myself. Then to deal with that - food. It's a vicious cycle.
What I found helped a lot was actually just to look in the mirror and be happy with yourself. Especially moving around. When you're confident in moving around without being awkward in your body, you are so much more confident and that boosts oxytocin levels, which boosts your metabolism. Also, you feel much much happier.
I know that's a big step to take. But moderating when you eat is important too. You could try saying, okay, I'm gonna eat a massive breakfast, a good lunch, and not eat anything until halfway to dinner when I can have one snack. Then nothing after dinner. Breakfast is so important.
Over-exercising increases stress levels, especially if you're thinking and worrying about it all the time. Don't over think it. Just do. Plan 3-4 sessions per week where you know you're just going to get down and work, and have the rest of the week off. By regulating everything (can I suggest a food diary as well) it should control the binge eating a little.Hope this helped! x
I would honestly suggest to stop the entire idea of a diet.Dieting and eating healthy does work for some people, and that's great, but never did for me. I completely understand the binge eating, and what your going through is normal. Exspecially if you are putting limits on the food you eat, when you start eating something it gets hard to stop because you know your trying not to allow yourself to have it.
I tried to tell myself to give up french fries, someone at work had mcdonalds, i took one fry, than i ate all of them in like 3 second.
My suggestion, dont tell yourself no, because than youll eat it all the chance you get. Eat smaller portions of what you love or 6 tiny meals a day.
