Overeating tips

I'm compulsive, I'm a closet eater, I have no willpower.
I've been vegan for years, and can manage to stop myself when cheese or dairy is part of the factor, but otherwise I have pretty minimal control over what goes into the hole in my head.

Does anyone have experience with this, resources to look into, things that helped you?

I, too, have gone through periods in my life when I haven't been able to control my eating...

I remember a few years ago the power went out in my neighborhood so I (naturally) responded by eating every single item of food in my fridge, freezer, and then moved on to the pantry, just in case the potato chips spoiled too.

If I could offer one piece of advice it would be this: over-eating is usually a symptom of a bigger problem. When I'm depressed, I eat. And vice versa. So take a look at the bigger picture and figure out the sources of stress in your life and change them!

I know that is not nearly as easy as it sounds, but give yourself a break, and take it one step at a time.

Good luck!!!
