I do do do want, NEED to do this and I know only I can do it and only I can wreck it but I seem to be on self destruct ( I am crying writing this) I need a kick up the ar***.
So very deliberately starting in 2015 I made a special effort not to fast. It was so very hard, but I knew deep down that I needed to address my relationship with food as a priority before it gets completely out of control.
The first thing that happened was that I read this http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens ... t-fat.html and made a start. There is nothing earth shattering about this plan apart from the fact that there is alot less food than I have been eating in this past...
There is a vast amount of baking/food preparation in my home and sizeable food stores, @Sassy1. Somehow, I never think of it as 'mine' (as in, a food option from which I should select my day's menu).Sassy1 wrote: Do you have any (other) tips for how you have been able to eat in moderation, particularly when you do have a large supply of whatever food it is in the house?
A lot of it is stored in boxes and what I can't see, doesn't call to me. If I have something that my DH can't stop eating then I will freeze or dehydrate it: if it's not suited to this then the item is portioned up and distributed to neighbours/family/colleagues/sports club, after he's had an appropriate portion.
I know that I notionally have the freedom to eat anything that I want and this might help me not to experience a sense of deprivation or restriction. Most of the time I choose not to eat items...
