Not any more. Planning my meals has really helped curb my appetite and the need to secret eat.

I try to be :) My guilty conscience gets me every time and I confess to the closest person next to me. I don't do it often or indulge in too much.

Not exactly a secret eater, but I will indulge in a snack after work if people are not around and I don't when people are there. So, maybe I am a secret eater.

I feel like secret eater isn't the right term for this. To me, secret eating is buying food and eating in secretly or sneaking food at night or something. This sounds more like mindless eating and pure unawareness.

Not really a secret eater, but more so a "mindless" eater. For example, I have caught myself a few times taking a bite of cake or cookies when I'm fixing that stuff for my kids.....and i was doing it without really thinking about it. But when you have three kids and fix several snacks a day that can add up.

I've done some "secret" eating before, either when everyone else was in bed or I was out shopping (like the posters going through drive-thrus). I've even bought goodies and hid them when I knew that my family wouldn't be home when I arrived home with them. But seriously, who are we cheating or kidding the most? I've had to remind myself of this many times. I think I have a handle on it now. I don't do that anymore. It would become obviously to others around me after some time anyway.

Look forward to watching the videos. Thanks!

No, I don't have any reason to hide eating from anyone else. I do like to eat alone, though, as I just enjoy weird food.

Like another poster, I am one of those who will "sneak" through a drive thru, order food, wolf it down, and throw the bag away before I get home. I haven't done that in a LONG time, but there are days I'm tempted.

Of course, I know how much I've eaten and don't lie to myself about it or question why the scale is going up. I do tend to feel loads of guilt about sabatoging myself, though, and have to use a lot of "self talk" to get me through the days where I could so do that again. I'm also learning to recognize my triggers (I eat my emotions/feelings), and take it day by day.

I have watched some of these episodes and, like others, am amazed at how much food people 'forget' they have eaten. I know I am overweight because I eat too much, and the wrong foods, so I don't think I am really a secret eater, as such. I think we all know what we ought to be doing to lose weight, it's getting our heads to stop being in denial about what our hands and our mouths are doing!

If going through the McDonalds drive-thru, ordering 3 double cheeseburgers, fries, a large coke and 2 pies, wolfing it all down in a secluded parking lot, then stopping at the nearest gas station to throw away the bags constitutes being a secret eater, then YUP - I used to be one of those!!

I have gotten a better handle on it nowadays, but still sometimes have those same tendencies. Any more though, I might not track it on my tracker, but I have tracked it in my head, so I am not kidding myself.

I won't lie, it is a struggle for me sometimes, and I am constantly working on it.

I've watched several episodes of this in UK and it's amazing how much these people kid themselves! (They even kept a food diary and forgot to mention the takeaway they bought several times a week, and the sausage rolls and chocolate they picked up at the garage on the way to work!) I don't think I'm a secret eater. There are days when I know I eat too much and even the odd day when I don't track cos I know I've gone so far over - but I'm not kidding anyone, least of all myself.

Thanks for the heads-up, BUFFLIECE! I'll have to look for this show. I used to be a secret eater when I was overweight, but I'm not anymore.

No, others will keep me from eating larger portions or seconds.


I did my best today, tomorrow I will do even better.

I've watched 2 episodes of this show in the UK (on YouTube) called Secret Eaters. It's a reality type where they watch the eating habits of people for 5 days by putting cameras in their home and surveillance. The subjects being watch think they eat well and can't understand why they are overweight. I think they should make a show like this in America. Some of us just don't realize how much we actually eat. Keeping the secret even from ourselves. Am I a secret eater? I'd like to think that I'm in recovery. If you've got about 50 minutes in your day, you may want to check it out AND share with friends and family.



Thanks for Listenin'
