  • You can scarf food, just scarf good food. I can't stop my compulsive eating but I can change what I eat. I also drink a bottle of water before eating snacks and meals. It fills up my stomach so I don't overeat. btw, I've lost almost 50 lbs even with cheating and just minor exercising (walking, stretches, resistance bands and light weight training)

  • See if you can figure out why you are scarfing food. The problem may not be what you are eating as much as what is eating you. Maybe you need to resolve some issues first then get yourself under control. In the mean time make sure you have plenty of crunchy fruit and veggies in the house so when you need to eat, your eating healthy.

  • you have to just really commit to it. what helps me is when i start loosing weight. just try your hardest to make it through 2 weeks of eating healthy & exercising, and then weigh yourself. thats what i just did - and i lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks. it gave me so much more motivation to keep on going. i do the biggest loser cardio max DVD & i eat special k red berries for breakfast, yogurt or sugar free pudding & a string cheese for lunch, lean cuisine for dinner, & a string cheese for a snack.
    lean cuisines are so good too. i ate a five cheese rigatoni one today, OMG. it was delicious.

  • Eat what's right - fruits & veggies, complex carbs and good lean proteins. Chewing gum really helps too!
