Mindfulness quiz result

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Well i took the mindfulness quiz and got a 2.3. According to the results that is not good. Alot of times i am unaware of what i am eating and how much. Sometimes i eat and then 5 minutes later i feel like im going to explode and sometimes it even hard to breathe and then i think to myself why the heck did i just eat that or all that. Alot at lunchtime i feel like this and often when my "nighttime binge eating". I am really trying hard to work on the nighttime binge eating. I dont know what it is after 9 i usually will feel hungry and nothing fills me up i mean even one time i had two cheese sandwiches, a bowl of cereal, and a pkg of cheeze its before i realized what the heck had i done. Then i go to bed depressed because i know what i had did and i just couldnt control it. I am trying new things of trying to correct this. Someone (herbalife coach) told me that i need to increase what i eat through the day. I often think that dieting you need to follow a strict menu. I really am trying to get out of that mind set but its hard. soemone else told me that maybe my sugar drops to low and that im trying to compensate for it. I dont know. but something has to change. So this week (all week) i am going to be mindful of what i eat and work on the nighttime binging. Knock on wood but for the past two nights I have not had a single snack after dinner so hopefully i can keep it up. *sparkling waves woohoo*

    Have you checked out the Nutrition Tracker on here? It has some really great meal plans! Once you begin to follow the healthy eating plan you will see what it feels like to eat a healthy days worth of food. After you have mastered a plan for a few months you will be able to learn from it and tweak it to your own healthy taste. Good luck!! emoticon Namaste.

    For me to get control I actually had to journal it . Before I would eat I would journal about what I feeling physical , emotional and mental . I would write what I wanted and then decide if I was hungry, depressed or stressed. You know there is a issue now just have to figure how to deal with it. emoticon

    I understand this completely. Been there, done that. I read up a lot on a Mediterranean type of diet, and it has been working great at curbing my hunger between meals. The key, it seems, is the olive oil. One or two teaspoons at each meal really does stop the cravings, helps to melt the belly fat (my biggest problem, no pun intended), and just generally keeps you satisfied. In fact, I have Norwegian chocolates in my fridge and haven't touched one since Tuesday. I haven't even wanted to! Look it up and check it out. It might be something you would like and could help. Good luck in whatever course you take!
