KJ Balance Life,

I thought the same thing. The eating was tied to emotion. So I was "thinking" I was an emotional eating when I am CARB and Calorie Crazed, which I am. Now that I am aware, I have improved 95%!

Glad you liked the post!

Wow! That was insightful, 1- I thought the ONLY type of eating crazy was attached to some type of EMOTION. I am a primary portion-distortion eater and a secondary emotional eater. Really good strategies to approach that, thanks for posting.

I'm carb and calorie crazed apparently... But they didn't give the option of eating too much in front of the COMPUTER! ;-)

My result, Fast Fueler, made sense. I have a crazy work schedule and I only know when I work about a week in advanced. Sometimes I don't get home until 9:30 and I'll eat whatever I can find in the kitchen. My schedule makes it more difficult to plan when I exercise.

Hopefully I can overcome these obstacles and reach my goals.

I am carb and calorie crazed AND yes I AM! I have to always make a point to get my protein in at each meal to have a balanced day. But I have learned ways to do it and I am seeing success.

When I read the results I thought the same thing, that is sooooo Me! The quiz really helped me.

I am glad you enjoyed It emoticon
