How did you get over food addiction?
When i first heard about food addiction from my friend ,I laughed at the idea of being addicted to food. She then dared me to stop eating junk food for a week. I soon noticed when i stopped for a day, thoughts of junk food consumed my mind.I caved in on the second day. I felt like i couldn't control myself, like my body was on auto-pilot when i ate the Lays chips. She later on educated me about the toxic and addictive qualities of the food i ate and i have been trying to not eat bad food for years now. Whenever i do cave in, i used a strategy i learned from all my failures before. I eat oatmeal whenever i felt an urge to eat toxic food. Oatmeal filled me up and unlike other foods like chips or cookies my stomach told me when it was full and when i hit my limit. For three days i would eat oatmeal 5-10 times a day. I didn't have that sugar oatmeal ,but regular with water.For those three days i felt tired ,but never sleepy ,but afterwards i felt so much better. I now feel great. When i started to eat better i also started to worked out. Before when i worked out, i felt like i was dying, but now i just feel tired. I am also happier and my mind feel more clear and pleasant to be in. I buy fruits and veggies from my local farmers market. I'm happy i overcame that addiction. What are your stories?
