Overeating

I've just finished reading 'The end of overeating' by David A Kessler.
WOW, it was like he had read my mind and put in on paper. Most of the book is about the food industry and what they do to food to make us want to eat eat eat it. I completely related and when he talked about how you can eat and eat without being hungry and have a battle in your head all at the same time... he was talking about me. Me when I'm eating sugary wheaty foods.

BUT right now I'm not eating sugar (apart from fruit, fresh and dried) and wheat. And I'm feeling so good for it.

The last quarter of the book talks about methods to use to stop 'overeating'. I've written heaps of notes and am going to make myself flash cards that will come with me until I know them off by heart. When I reach maintenance (with my weight) I will need them as that's when things get hard.

I'm excited to get to maintenance now.

My fat jeans are finally too big, my medium jeans are fitting and my skinny jeans await.

How are you going? What do you do to help with maintaining weight when you reach your goal?

  1. Holy cow, I just saw your before and after pics! I must say, I love eating so much and it is very hard not to over eat when one is faced with deliciousness, even if it is "legal" deliciousness. I always admire those souls that can dish one moderate sized portion and be totally okay with that....

  2. YAY YOU!!!!! You might want to check out marksdailyapple.com, since you are already giving up wheat and sugar, you are 90% of the way there.

    Glad the book is changing your life, too! :)
