You may learn to control overeating for awhile, even a few years now and then, but, like any other addiction, it comes out to grab you, often when you think you are doing just fine. Eliminating certain foods might seem to work, but the need for them will pop up again during your lifetime. We miss a certain satisfaction we get from overeating, and it's stronger than any other romance. That's why people go off and on diets, it's not that we don't know we shouldn't do it..... and nagging makes it worse. Report

terrific metaphor. you really nailed what it feels like. Report
I'll be honest. The photo in this article made me crave glazed donuts. Report
I find that eating high fiber food and eating healthy snacks, not waiting too long between eating, helps me. If I don't feel starving all of a sudden, I make better choices. Planning dinner ahead of time and having everything ready at a reasonable time makes a big difference to me, too. Report
That was the best description I've ever read of what I feel like when I start to binge eat. Just knowing I'm not the only one who experiences this was very comforting. Report
