How can I get myself to STOP EATING?!

well... here's what i did. i suddenly realized that if i stop right before i'm full, i could eat again soon without feeling like a big ole bullfrog... whenever you're tempted to stuff yourself, just remember that food will still be around a few hours later. sounds silly, but it worked for me.

I know it sounds stupid but instead of trying to stop yourself just try something else. If you feel like eating pick small healthier things like apples and peanut butter, carrots and dip, cauliflower or broccoli. Veg out instead eating big or unhealthy foods.Also sometimes people eat because they are bored or lonely. If you are bored try taking up a new hobby like creative writing or scrapbooking. something to keep your mind busy and off eating. You can also keep a journal.

take vitamins... eat small portions than you usually will and if you need to snack chew gum or buy special K bars

I have the cure!
If your hungry eat.
but when you eat, do nothing else. No tv, no raido, no talking, no nothing.
Eat whatever you want, but eat it slowly. Chew your food ALOT before you swallow.
When you eat savor your food. Pay attention only to it.

If you do this you will find yourself full long before you usually are.

Warning: May lead to extreme loss of weight. May cause a surplus in sexiness.
