I cannot stop thinking about food

Hey peeps.

This is my 6th week :-o

For the past 2 weeks I have been eating reasonably healthy but I cannot stop thinking about food, it the same as I used to think about smoking.

Today I have eaten;

2 slices of toast

2 packets of crisps and a pot of cous cous

countless cups of coffee

When I was a smoker this would have been my whole days worth of eating and its 2.30 and I am starving, just keep thinking about what I am going to eat for my dinner.

Anyone else obsessed with food all the time?!

I have been excercising a lot more too, cycling and tae bo but weight seems to be creeping up again :-/

  • Yep, i'm a food addict, anything to take my mind off the ciggies:(

    You sure the extra weight ain't muscle Jill with all the exercise you've been doing as muscle is heavier than fat (by volume).

  • Pete, We will have to join a support group on food addicts soon :-/

    I originally thought it could be just that, the muscle was weighing me down but I measured too and have not lost any inches so I doubt that it is anything to do with the muscle.

    Has anyone any suggestions on food that is sort of low in calories but keeps you feeling full for a while but also keeps energy levels up!?

    Starting to get me down a LOT


  • Just popping out for a creme egg :D


    I LOVE creme eggs and carmel eggs and mars eggs, any type of eggs of the chocolate variation, its easter soon!



  • Try this website Jill onemorebite-weightloss.com/...

    They seem to have a few tools you can use........... but i'm no expert.

  • Me! ME!!! I've never been a massive eater and now I can't bloody stop! Today I have had:

    1 buttered scone

    2 mini battenburgs

    2 custard creams

    1 tuna salad sandwich

    1 satsuma

    And I'm sat here wondering how soon I can decently make dinner, I'm STARVING.

    I did walk the three miles home again, that's my only saving grace. Then again, that was supposed to be to work off the huge three course meal I had at pizza express last night. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, not much help am I? But you're not alone.

  • Oh sigh, yes.

    During my first proper six month quit I put on 3 dress sizes! Which i still haven't lost!I just couldn't stop eating. Did find a link once about it being to do with low blood sugar and also the replacement putting something in the mouth thing. And cigarettes apparently have an appetite deadening affect.

  • Im eating a llot more now that Im quit and that im going cold turkey, as NRT can make a difference as well. I find I'm eating loads now, eat three meals a day and always snacking throughout the day as I find this helps with cravings. Ive put on half a stone since I quit which Im happy about :).
