  • This is an awesome article and written in such a fun "voice"! Thanks for the playful inspiration and the great ideas! - 9/22/2010 5:56:00 PM
  • This is too weird for words...this beast lives inside of me too! This article was written perfectly describing my wars with my 'beast'. I have gone into that state of not being myself while eating. I'm like a robot. 'Hand to mouth.Hand to mouth.' I find that the suggestions in the article are a couple of tricks I have been learning. Sometimes I find myself in the kitchen and I just leave and go and do something around the house, or get on the computer to keep my hands busy. I have also been using the 'delay' tactic. I tell myself that after a small healthy snack, I will wait 15-30 minutes, depending on if I can distract myself, and then if I still feel like I need something to eat, I will get something. This way, I also don't overeat when I think this way. - 9/21/2010 7:54:19 PM

  • The stalling tatic really works for me! Also, just staying out the kitchen after dinner because my downfall is night time eating. - 9/21/2010 1:36:44 PM
  • This is a great article. I'm a "bored" eater and if I can focus on something else I will usually forget about the snacks. - 9/21/2010 1:08:14 PM
  • Thank you so much!!!!! - 9/21/2010 12:42:35 PM
  • I wish I would have read this yesterday. After increasing my activity successfully for a few days last night I thought I would make this awesome looking recipe for a dessert. I went wild and out of control over these little cups of yogurt and fruit mixed with brown sugar. It was awful. I ate all four I had made and afterwards wondered what had happened. - 8/26/2010 2:40:17 PM
  • Thanks for this! I am constantly fighting my emotional side and the last few days I have been losing the battle. But after readign this I feel renewed to keep fighting. - 8/26/2010 11:32:02 AM
  • This article was so helpful. It gave me tools to deal with emotional eating. Thanks. - 8/19/2010 1:58:25 PM
  • Thanks Dean! I saved this article to favorites!

    I have been fighting this battle for the longest time. My weak will power has been no match for the "Beast". My weight started rising, my self esteem started falling, I gave up on myself and accepted defeat believing I would never be able to win my weight battle.

    Dean, you have given me new hope, encouragement and a strategy to be victorious! - 8/19/2010 1:26:15 PM
  • This is a great article. I am going to print it and put it near my PC, on my refrigerator. Excellent advice. - 8/19/2010 1:11:01 PM
  • Wow. I just blogged about this the other day, almost in tears. What timing! I wrote about the fact that I feel I'm in some heavy weight battle, losing, falling. But I culminated my blog with my own personal 'Over-Eating Action Plan' which had a few things-to-do this article mentioned. This is solidifying that I'm doing the right things. I like thinking of the emotional eating episodes as "a beast" just as afraid of me as I am of it, or as "a child just awoken from a nightmare" in need of quick comfort. It paints the picture that there's an end in site through such turbulent times. That vision helps a great, great deal... - 8/19/2010 12:41:46 PM
    This is powerfully simple advice!!!I'm going to reread it until I own it. Thanks so much. - 7/9/2010 9:44:37 AM
