Satisfied but wants more

Options
What do you do when you feel satisfied with the food I take but want more cause you love food so much and it ends up being too much always for me! And I feel sick and extra bloated and uncomfortable, I have a hard time saying no.... I always always go for more and this is what's hurting me.

    I have this same problem. Intermittent fasting has helped me by giving me smaller windows to eat in but even in those small windows i have to be careful really distractions help being anywhere that involves activity and no food

    Willpower is like a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it gets. The first few times you walk away may feel like a mini death, but after that it will get easier and easier

    Hahaha And you have the Krispy Kreme box in the profile pic. I'm sure the donuts don't help.
    I love food too, but I can say now that I avoid *kitten* food more now.. be a little bit more selective

    More what? If you're eating bread then you want more. Eat something with fat and protein and see if that doesn't satisfy you.

    Then put on the big girl panties and say no to yourself.

    I mean seriously if you are feeling sick from eating too much that is an issue and you are well aware you are doing it so it's a choice not anything else....

    Your style of writing resembles that of many people with ADD. Have you ever discussed it with your doctor?

    I believe losing weight is the easy part. Changing your mentality to accomplish your goal is the hard part. Some people are simply not ready for that change. It's like taking away a smoker's cigarettes and expecting them to be okay with it. If that person is not ready to quit smoking, he will just go out and buy another pack of cigarettes. The person that needs to change must want to change on their own terms. What is your why? Why do you want to lose weight? Keep asking yourself why. For example, I want to look better in clothes Why? Because I want to attract a mate. Why? Because I want a family one day. Find the root of your why and use that as motivation. Keep reminding yourself of it. It may take time for the change to happen, but keep trying. The seed has been planted. You just need to let it grow.

    Eat a small something that does end your cravings or go do something else.

    For example, a wedge of smoked cheese eaten very slowly often stops my cravings whereas a handful of tortilla chips would just entice me to eat the whole bag. If I'm thinking too much about food in the evening, I go downstairs to bed (our house is upside down) and read. There's no food down there.

    The third dissuasion I use is putting the snack in the diary before I eat it knowing any overage MUST (by my rules) be a quick calories entry in the next day's diary. Nothing like trying to eat a few hundred calories less the next day to make that quick snack seem less worthwhile.
