I can't stop myself from eating.?

I don't know why. I just... eat all of the time. I'm bored, I eat. Nothing to do, I eat. I even eat when I'm not hungry. It wouldn't be a problem if I were eating more fruit or something, but it's mostly all junk food. If I did transfer that want for eating to eating fruits and vegetables, would it help any or would an appetite suppresent be better?

    if you don't bring it in to the house you can't eat it. Have someone else pick up your groceries so you won't be tempted. Many stores deliver that way you can just order small amounts.

    Hi humm!!!

    No!, No appetite supressants, no need for them!!! Look you take appetite suppressants today and tomorrow you need to go to the doctor.

    The real reason for you to be eating even without hunger, is probably some issues you haven't being able to resolve, and food is the "QUICK FIX?DESTROYER" of emotional or phsycological problems.

    I suggest you meditate on what could possibly is making you take comfort in food. When you finally pin point at it, "JUST LET GO OF IT", and forget it!!!

    If you think that on top of that boredom, is the second worst reason why you are anxious, so you eat: Start a new project and commit to it!!! Find something that interest you enough so you don't quit doing it !!!

    Also people get pleassure in eating junk food, because the added preservative they contain, are highly addictive!!! Yes!!!

    Just like drugs, alcohol, cigarettes will get you hook on them, the same happen with junk food!!!!

    So you really want to stay away from all of this. To snack on fruits and vegetables is the best, thing that anybody can do.

    Is healthy, give one energy and provide one with a lot of stamina!

    But also keep a good balance of everything you eat. Of course you can become a vegetarian, but if this is your choice, be smart doing this transition.

    Exercising is one of the best ways of shifting your thoughts from food. Especially if you go out to exercise with fa. or friends, a lot of fun to!!! Is very positive all together..

    So you see??? No real need to take appetite suppresants, poisoning your body, when you can get the same results just, educating and controlling YOURSELF, for YOU OWN benefit!!!!

    I have the same problem. Carry on with your strategy food is to eat anyway. But make sure you burn it off though. Barry Austin Britain's fattest man is 50 stone but i don't know whether he's alive though because every second to him could be his last due to health reasons. But mate, cut down on the junk and start having fruit instead. About me having the same problem, i eat around six times a day of large quantities but i do not because i burn it off. I have a large appetite but therefore i am muscly because when i burn, i also build muscle. Happy new year!

    i don't think drugs are the way to go. best thing to do would be to get someone to talk to - it doesn't have to be any sort of formal therapy, even just telling a friend or relative that you trust what's going on can help.

    then there's food journaling (write down everyhing thing you eat and drink as well as the date and time, also write down what else is going on (ex: 31 Dec , 9am 2 eggs, toast and orange juice: studying for a test) which helps you see what kinds of patterns you have. maybe your eating rhythm is related to your stress level

    the first step is always knowing yourself and seeing the problem. since you've already made it that far, you should be able to figure this one out even if it takes a little time.

    chin up, you can do this!

    I am in the same boat.

    When I'm bored I eat as well. I don't care for being around people though. and that "if you don't have it around you, you won't eat it" doesn't work for me. Because if I want it, I go get it. Drive thru.

    Fruit is more healthy but it does have a lot of calories. I used to eat a bunch of oranges.

    Changing from junk food to fruit will help, but won't solve your problem (most likely emotional) why you can't stop eating. So, overeating fruit will still be bad for you. You might want to talk to someone who you trust and can confide in and talk through why you do this.

    I think you need a hobby and stop being bored. Instead of staying home and eating why not join a sports team. Being atheltic and staying in shape doesnt make you hungry. And yes, you should eat more veggies and fruit. ALSO!!!! just dont BUY junk food, if you dont buy it, you wont see it, and you wont eat it.

    find something:

    -that's not boring,

    -that you DON'T like to eat,

    -to eat that's fruit,

    -to eat that's not junk food,

    -to eat that's a vegetable,

    yes, you basically know what to do. occupy your time with thinking and doing what you know you should do. think more about the good results that you know to expect.

    if you cant stop yourself from eating, try thinking of all the fats, calories and other gross stuff in the food. most food has more junk that you realize so before you start eating the food, read the nutrition facts. sometimes, i get grossed out at the amount of things that are in some foods, that keeps me away! try it, it should help you alot!

    When your goal, is to be healthy - shapelier - easier to move around - more energy, YOU WILL STOP eating junk!!

    You will change your habits. You will be healthy, and you will

    feel good and have more energy and a plus is - you will loose sizes.

    Make it a priority and a goal. That is all it takes. A DECISION.

    Do it for yourself.

    You Can Do It!!
