  • All I can say is that you know you should stop, so stop. We can't run around doing everything we want to just because we feel like it right then. Being a grownup requires a little more forethought.

  • It's a craving, not hunger. It's really a choice. It's not something you can't stop, it's something your allowing yourself to do and not control. You have to discipline yourself and tell yourself no. It's not that you can't it's that you won't. I've been there too. It's really a matter of choice and effort.

  • if ya need fast food look at the healthy choices on menus like Taco Bell and a few others, Do a kids meal if you must eat the junk, it'll satisfy the urge but in smaller protions

  • What specifically are you craving? A certain food? You can prepare your own hamburgers and fries at home if thats what your craving. Also when a person is out of money, they find ways to do without. Don't throw hard earned money away on food. Its not worth it. At some point youre going to have to tell yourself NO.

  • I can relate I've been on a chicken wing binge for the last few months. Not having it every day mind you but on a weekly-biweekly basis. It's my comfort food. After I've had a long hard day I'd order some after having put the kids to bed. One time the delivery guy came to the door and I had my credit card in hand to show him and he said, "I don't need to see the card of regulars." HOLY CRAP I was a regular at a wing joint. Not good. I've cut way back we've ordered them maybe once this month and not feeling like having them again any time soon. It's a process, you write down how you're feeling when you go to get fast food and then how you feel after. After a week or so read it over and see if you see any patterns and address them. I've discovered mine is for comfort but I don't feel good after. I've no will power so I know I need to avoid take out on those days. Good luck!
