It's stress - whether it's one big thing or a pile-up of little things. You might be able to stop yourself now, but when your feeling more like your normal self, you need to work on finding a replacement behavior for stress bingeing.

My personal favorite is jumping my significant other, but I don't have one at the moment so I go to the gym and do something as hard and fast as I can, until either I get the tears up and out or the endorphins override the bad emotions. I figured it was better than a box of brownies, a bottle of Jack, or any of the usual vices we turn to in moments like that.

Stop with the negative talk already! You said you WANTED to eat every thing - doesn't sound like you did it. Old habits are hard to break. You can't expect to completely change your life and not feel drawn back to those old comfortable habits. Not to mention the pull of those addictive foods you may have been eating - or are still eating, but in smaller quantities.

Mindset is a huge part of this 'game.' You're not pathetic - you're strong for resisting those urges. You don't feel like shit (okay maybe you do, but now you have a different mantra) - you're empowered b/c you WILL conquer the power food has over you.

For some people, like me, giving in to that urge can set off a downward spiral that lasts a lot longer than one night. The best way to fight cravings is to stop giving in to them.

I did the same thing last night. SO...I munched on lots of stuff....luckily I had prepared ahead and had lots of healthy food to munch on. I keep ff chips, ff coleslaw, 100 calorie pack oreos, and lots of low cal recipes so when I give in it isn't so bad. I treat myself all the time to low cal food that I love (even though some of them are processed) because It keeps me from over loading on it later. Hersheys makes 100 cal candy bars now! and you can find almost everything in a ff version these days. It costs more, but I don't near as much as I used to either.

I know just what you mean. I had lost 6 pounds only to turn around and gain 2 back from over eating it is called STRESS!! Try and fight it by exercising more and drinking more water. Good luck

Go take a bath, go for a walk, paint your nails, read a book, look at before and after pictures on PT...anything to give you some time to calm down and re-focus!

Is there a reason behind why you are wanting to?
Are you trying to sabotage yourself subconsiously?
Beyond that I think we all go through these times and that is where you just have to fight for yourself.

You might need a nutrient for your body and it is driving you crazy to get it. I read that on ending the hunger cycle article on the site here. I didn't know that and I found out that when I'm Blender/Juicing I get more nutrients and find it more satisfing and filling to eat right. I am thinking about going Raw Food to get more value in my eating if that really works. So far, It has been. Hoping you find your solution
