Can't stop eating

Sometimes on the weekends I don't eat until 3 or 4 in the afternoon. During the week when I get to work I'll eat my breakfast (Yogurt) and it's like a flood gate opens and I eat all day long. Anyone else have this problem?

Me too.

I can eat seven square meals a day and still be hungry. And it seems to never hit me until i have that first little bit. If that first thing does not fill me up, i search all day for that satisfaction. try eating oatmeal or something more filling and see if it helps. thats what i did.

I agree with the oatmeal.
It's dense and filling. I sometimes put a little honey in mine with flaxseed oil.
I notice when I eat yogurt I get hungry earlier...I think it's the sugar.

I don't like oatmeal I have tried it all and I just can't stand it. Thanks though.

Weekday Binging

Sometimes I run into this same problem. I noticed that it coincides with my stress level or mood. My trainer at the gym told me to snack on apples and string cheese. The protien/carb ratio really fills you up. I tried it and it works. If you are experiencing a sweet tooth, go for some Weight Watchers Fudge Bars. They are ice cream fudge bars low in calories and fat.

You need to drink WATER!
It really helps!
Every time I think I want to just snack...I drink a 8oz. bottle of water and then see if I want to still snack. I realize I am often dehydrated and wasn't "hungry" after all. Grant you, if I am I might grab some almonds/walnuts.
Good texture and makes me feel like I'm "eating" something.

I will try the apples and string cheese. I guess I just feel like I have a split personality sometimes. I will actuall sneak and eat food sometimes. I think I'm losing my mind.

Remember it could be "what you are eating" also that makes you want to constantly eat more.
High caloric "empty carbs" high in sugar and fat make you spike and want to keep eating. That's my weakness...sugar...
So, I try to eat more green veggies and protein and less carbs...whole grains. Otherwise, I can nibble ALL DAY as well and it adds up!

I agree stress is a huge factor...BUT I Eat when I'm BORED too!
...and depressed...
So, I try to watch out when I'm just eating to eat.

I'm really bad I buy all these veggies at the store and they end up rotting away in the fridge because I really don't like them. I am a very picky eater. I want to start eating new foods so that my daughter will not be like me. If I could stick to a diet for just one day that would be a amazing. I start in the morning and by lunch it's over.
