I always want to eat

Written by M. Larson

wanttoeatI am having difficulty finding the roots of my desire to eat so much. I enjoy food and look forward to eating. During the four years since I have been married, I have gained about 50 pounds. I have tried many diets (I only last a few days on them now) and exercise when I can. I am at the point where feel like giving up on looking good again. Can you direct me to any resources that may help me understand the psychology behind this problem.

Advice: Please don’t give up – your health depends on you. You say you have tried various diets, but they only last a few days. The secret to gaining control over your problem lies in your completely and permanently changing your diet and daily exercise (even if it is only a brisk walk).

Kick the fast food and sweet stuff, and start eating vegetables, fruits, fish, and whole grain foods like whole wheat bread and oatmeal for breakfast. After a while you will get to enjoy that kind of food. Walking each day is very uplifting to the spirit, even as it helps with the figure.
