Ok sweetie, relax, ok?
"I have tried diets, pills, shakes everything I am about to give up and just eat myself in too a coma. My weight has been a huge cause of my depression lately and I need help. I honestly think I am addicted to food. When im happy, sad, mad, worried and frustrated I eat because that seems to make me feel content till I eat again."
Let's look at this.
Diets don't really work (in my opinion) I'm talking about the kinds with the plans (eat this for breakfast, eat this for lunch, etc)...neither do the pills or the shakes. So, trying them and failing is no biggie...they don't work and all you lost is $.
Now - You are an emotional eater. And that's ok, too :) You need to find strategies to combat it, though, in order to lose weight.
Get rid of junk food in your house! Fill your house with healthy food - and here is one example, which while drastic..proves a point:
A head of cauliflower (a whole head of it) has 200 calories. Yep. You could pig out and eat a whole head of cauliflower for only 200 calories!
Apples average 100 calories. You can eat 4 for only 400 calories - and that's a lot of apples, lol.
Well, I guess you see where I am going with that :)
A lot of emotional eaters journal to release the emotions - start a journal and write down what is going on, how you feel about it, etc.
Take a walk. Nothing clears the head like a brisk 15 minute walk!
Well, I hoped this helped you a little. Next time, post in the Panic Button area...you will get more and faster responses that way :) And I do hope that you post again.
The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.
