Does thinking about food so much ultimately become a binge eating session to you? Does this sound like you?
You are sitting at home and you can’t stop thinking about food. You don’t understand what you’re interested in, but you feel preoccupied with food, like you need to eat it because you’re at home. You try to not eat it, because you know what will happen. It’s the same cycle as always: A little bite of something will become a binge eating session.Malabar Raccoon Removal
This happens to many men and women. Harmless snacking initially becomes a gigantic binge eating moment and they feel like they just cannot stop. It is true that most of the time people do turn to food for comfort and due to some sort of emotional issue that happened to them previously, but what about the people who can’t relate to that? These kinds of people just know that they really enjoy food and feel as though they can’t stop eating, which always turns into a binge for them.
So when you want to learn how to stop binge eating and curb any cravings, what do you do?
1. Chew gum. Many times we are bored and eating sounds like just what to do to pass time. Rather than leading to a possible binge using a trigger food, try chewing gum. The constant chewing gum will trick your brain and you won’t find that you’re drifting off to snacking. You will find satisfaction with picking a gum which has a long-lasting flavor.
2. Do something. Working out of home I find myself in the kitchen just as it’s convenient. It’s the same thing with people working at an office. The community candy bowl or the kitchen seem to only be convenient, and before you know it, you have consumed food that you were not even hungry for. Rather than falling victim to advantage, why not remove yourself from the situation. If you’re at home and the kitchen keeps calling your name, leave the house. Making the kitchen imperceptible to you will really help you to not snack as much and will definitely curb future binges.
3. Find motivation. What motivates you to stay on track? Is there a site that you visit frequently or a website? Do you have a friend that will keep you on track? Think about your motivation towards not binging and get it done. Not only will you become motivated not to binge and snack, but it (hopefully) won’t even be in your mind anymore.
4. Find the alternative. This tip really worked well for me. If you begin to crave a food, do not deprive yourself of it necessarily; simply find a healthier version of it. If you are craving tacos, make them at home since they’ll be healthier. If you can’t get sweets out of your mind, instead of reaching for the bag of chocolate, try an apple or another sweet fruit. Many times you will feel satisfaction because you are still fulfilling your sweet tooth… just in another way.
The next time you can’t seem to stop obsessing over food, or if a craving only seems like it is too much, try some of the tips. They worked for me when I was thinking how to prevent binge eating for myself and hopefully you will have success with them as well.
