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.
