Welcome!! It's my believe that most, if not all of us are compuslive eaters. I think Kestes makes a really good point. Start off with one compromise. For me the compromise is bread, pasta, rice, and sugar. I LOVE potatos so I have them occasionally. I'm going to try to work my way back to sweet potatos to buffer this. I also use low carb bread occasionally.

Start slow. Just choose one thing, and give it up. Maybe choose something that isn't a priority on your list, but just a habit. Maybe your one thing is sugary drinks that can be replaced with water or tea. You will need to figure that out. This is a wonderful group. Good luck.

Smart Carber.

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

Vix, Welcome to Sparkpeople and to the Team. To me the key to keeping the weight off is to continue the plan as a lifestyle not a diet! If you are loosing then just keep eating that way forever but once you reach your goal then add a small sensible treat once a week. I wish you the best with your weight loss goals.

Being a compulsive overeater can be a struggle, but with patience, creativity and a strong support network, you can win the battle. The first step is to think of at least one compromise that you are willing to make in your eating habits. For example, try to have at least one serving of fruits or vegetables with each meal or drink at least one glass of water before you eat. These are just a few tricks that I have learned myself.
