I have an eating issue. To stay on track and not overeat I try to eat a planned menu which is more or less the same thing each day. I eat enough on a regular day so I feel satisfied without overeating.

My problem is on a day like today. Once I decide that I’m not sticking with it, I completely loose control and then I feel so bad afterwards.

I barely slept last night. I am walking around like a zombie and keep feeling like I need energy so I eat something else... I’m also stressed about a few things today so between the stress and being overtired I’m eating out of control.

Here’s what I ate today:

2 pre packaged danishes with coffee (Splenda)
Slice of Muenster cheese
Tuna
Corn
Beets
Hard boiled egg
1/2 slice pizza
Coffee with sugar
Brownie bar
3 bowls of sugared cereal Can't Believe It TMI
And I’m invited to a bar mitzvah tonight...

How can I make sure I don’t get like this ever again????????
It will probably take me a whole week to loose the weight I gained from today IF I’m super careful...
This has been happening too often... I think I’m good.. then I just let myself go and I regret it after...
I- need-help.....

That sounds like an eating disorder.

This isn't called eating a lot.

I think she means the opposite of how you've interpreted it. I might be wrong though I thought she was saying it's an eating disorder that you think you ate so much.

Stop eating starchy grainy fruity carbs and processed food. Like many of us who had out of control eating disordered have discovered, some people react to glucose rises by eating like maniacs when the glucose falls. Keeping your blood sugar steady by eating things that keep your blood sugar stable like protein, fat and low carb veg, can even you out. I had food in my mouth all day. I could not stop. Or if I managed to, I suffered, probably because I ate fruit even when I was being ‘good’ and it made me crazy.

It’s not hard to try for a few days. Eat what you want of fat and protein. Eat salty food. Suddenly you’ll know what I’m taking about. True story.

Definitely listen to Andrea Levy. She's the expert around here.

Not sleeping means that your body needs more calories to get through the day. If you are making poor food choices, those calories can end up sticking around.

As for portions, I tend to overeat as well. I'm hypoglycemic, and I also don't have much of an appetite because of the medications I'm on. When my blood sugar drops it's usually very sudden, and then I end up stuffing my face with whatever is within reach.

I'm working on having better quality meals, in smaller amounts, all through the day. Otherwise I just binge on a huge dinner and then sleep like a log.

I've had to train myself to take one small portion, and then wait a full hour. After that, I check in with my body and see if I actually NEED another helping of food, or if I just sort of want it. It can take up to an hour for your gut to send satiety messages to your brain.

You don’t think that was overeating?
Danishes, brownies, 3 bowls sugared cereal... plus a lot more

I ended off my day eating at a bar mitzvah tonight then coming home and eating Pringle’s and pretzels... and a chocolate rugaleh... with iced tea

There is definitely something wrong here.

Hey honey, thanks for the love❤️. This should also work for hypo because you don’t produce as much insulin in response to what you’re eating...
