stress eating
redheaded50 posted:
I am a binge eater. If I am stressed,bored or depressed; I will overeat big time. What are some tips on how to control the overeating. I need to lose 12 lbs; but the binge eating is hindering my diet.

I do this too, or at least used to. Now, I don't go anywhere without two bottles of water. When I go in to sit in the livingroom, I have water with me.
BUT, if I do need to munch, these are my "go to " snax.
1. 1/8c Hummus and baby carrots
2. 3c airpopped popcorn, sprayed with PAM butter flavor cooking spray , sprinkled with "nosalt" sodium substitute, and 1-2 packets of stevia (this makes it taste sort of like kettle corn)
3. 1/3 of a can of no sugar added fruit coctail and 2Tblsp, vanilla light and fit yogurt
4. 1/2 of a prewrapped square of semi sweet Baker's chocolate- lick this like a sucker, don't just devour it. I promise , it will kill your chocolate craving
5. 3Tblsp raisins , mixed with 1 tsp of "mini choc chips" , you can melt together in mw and stir for choc covered raisins

also if you have enough time to be bored, you have enough time to take a short walk or play some Wii tennis , or lift some light weights , or dance through 3 songs. Try these and you'll burn some calories and be less bored. I promise, this is what I do. I feel like eating or start being bored enough to munch, I turn on my Wii tennis and do 3 sets of 5 , lol.

Thanks for the suggestions. Next time I feel like I could eat everything in the pantry, I will try your recipes. Stuck with my diet today. Yipe!!! Good luck to you.
