as an emotional eater in general whether you are over weight or not - that barrier to sensible thinking and logic is completely ineffective when going thru a 'binge panic mode'.
it bothers me that products like PGX (which is not bad and of itself), Sensa and other fiber that 'blows up in the digestive tract to make you feel full' is marketed as a very simple alternative to help lose weight.
HELLO - when an emotional eater is in the throws of an attack - the food they eat is FILLING THEM - OVER FILLING THEM - if they were cognizant of that fact - and thinking clearly and logically - they would have stopped eating long before they got to the boiling point!!
i have seen people use these products and run into some very serious and painful health problems. if you don't drink the adequate amount of water so that those materials can be eliminated from the system - you not only have everything you shoved down your feelings with INSIDE YOU along with the same feelings which may be some what abated (but will return as sure as death and taxes), but you have cement like matter clogging your system.
please tell me what you have experienced- i know i am an intelligent person - but i admit i have a pantry full of fiber pills and powders - i have used PGX when it first appeared on the market - it did nothing for my weight loss and i was following a very good eating plan. most of the products i have sitting on the shelf have doubled in price over the past years - and like every other 'smoke and mirror' cockamamey idea that gets put out there - we fork over millions for stuff that is basically a scam or at the very best just plain useless without doing harm - we hope.
logically we all know there is no magic bullet- we also know the food industry is ripe and bursting with all kinds of bad frankenfoods that put on our pounds no matter how sensibly we watch what we eat - these salt and sugar laden products that set us up for craving anyway - so look out when we are in an emotional down spiral.
