You might have seen my messages before, but this time I need serious help. I can't stop eating. I figure if I'm able to challenge myself, I might be able to stop. Whoever posted not eating after 7, thanks a bunch. I don't eat after dinner, even though my family eats dinner really late. The water thing really helps at night too. But since I've always chowed down after school, I go home and automatically open the refridgerator. Is there anyone here like that? I feel so balloony everytime I eat, but I can't help myself. At least now I drink enough water.

what you can do is eat a smaller breakfast and lunch and dinner, and slide an extra meal in after school but instead of chips and stuff make a ham and chees sandwich with a glass of water or milk, spreading meals throwout the day instead of a couple big ones also speads up our matabolism

Hello Ali,
I want to tell you, your not alone! That is for sure! My worst time of the day for eating is after school. I'm just so use to coming home and grabbing something to eat! Its awful, and i'm trying so hard to break this habbit. Things that have helped me, as soon as u get home, have a glass of COLD water. It may help fill you up a bit, so you might not feel hungry, and head towards the fridge. Also, i tried chewing gum, it helps sometimes! Hope i helped u a bit! And good luck!

In between meals keep yourself busy by taking a walk, playing basketball, or cleaning your room. That way you won't eat, and you'll burn more calories, and you'll sleep better at night because you will be more tired. Good luck!
