  • I put a child lock on my fridge so every time I go to it and try and open it, it serves as a reminder and makes me think....am I really hungry or just eating to eat? It's worked today so far! GL!

  • Drink a ton of water. It helps you feel full, has no calories and it's really cheap!

  • There is no quick weight loss program. It takes time and effort. Get help for your depression first. Then work out a sensible exercise and eating plan. It isn't about starving yourself, it is about learning portion control and healthy eating.

  • Food high in protein or slow burning carbs(polysaccharides) will fill you up and keep you feeling full longer. Steel cut oats, sweet potatoes, and black beans.

    Most mornings I have a serving of greek yogurt(high protein) and a green banana(high polysaccharides) around 8am and don't feel hungry again unit 1-2pm.

    Take the time to research and learn good eating habits before you start to save yourself a ton of frustration and setbacks.

  • It sounds like you eat for emotional reasons? If you are depressed, get treated for that. Talk therapy plus meds is usually what works best. Wellbutrin has low wt gain risk. Exercise is an even safer and better "medication" for depression, and helps with wt loss. Find a friend and get your ass moving (I mean that in a nice way!). Geneen Roth has also written lots of great books about emotional eating. Best of luck to you.

  • How long ago did you have your baby? That could be what is causing the depression and the hunger! I know I was starving all the time for a while after each of my little ones, but it went away eventually. But exercise does help with feeling better all the way around. Don't beat yourself up about weight because that just makes it worse! Love your body, it is a beautiful gift from God.

  • I am on a 1600 calorie diet(which I never eat in a day) and what has helped me is write down everything--for example this morning I had 1 cup malt-o-meal; 1 slice wheat bread with margarine and 1 cup Orange Juice and then I have a book that breaks it down according to how many calories; how many carbohydrates and etc; so that might help you also it is sometimes easier when you have things written down to know how much you are consuming in a day; but you may also want to consult with a dietician or your doctor before starting anything
