Sorry to hear about your binge eating. Lots of theories about it and solutions. Follow your instinct about how many meals. I would also suggest ensuring you choose meals you enjoy and take the time to enjoy the food.

Re: automated eating tracker

Sorry to hear about HH. Just been out with my border collie, he's really showing his age now :(

Re: automated eating tracker

I remember when my son was 2 or 3 allowing him to help prepare a meal and giving him a sharp knife, my friend was horrified! It's hard in this day and age to let go. I often wonder if more bad things do actually happen or if they are just more widely reported so it seems worse. Btw he didn't cut him...

Re: TRAC77 daily check in

Soprano, in the afternoon, I was first craving sweets, then legitimately hungry - in the evening it was pure craving. I wanted some chocolate or a cookie. Evenings are kind of hard for me because after I put my daughter (who is a toddler) to bed, it's kind of like that "exhale, relax and enjoy" hou...

Sorry to hear you have been unwell. Hope you fully recover soon.

I'm sure you'll soon get back in the swing of it with Nos. Just be gentle with yourself.

Re: Sharon's daily check-in

Great to hear from you. My story has been similar to yours. I've not got to my nos lowest since Christmas but am 11lbs lighter than when I started last March. I'm going to start walking again soon and have maintained my yoga.

If I am lighter this time next year it will do me.

Well done

I wasn't for one minute going to suggest counting calories :)

But being aware of the fact you are eating a 270 cal dessert on a regular basis might be useful :)

Have you measured yourself, you are doing some good exercise it might not be fat you are gaining.

How many calories in a froyo bar?

Re: Linda's daily check-in

I've thought for a while you might not be eating enough now. Nos would be a great way to start but you might have to be prepared for some increase in weight while your body adjusts.

So I'd say 3 meals but watch portion sizes and composition.

You've done great so far just don't panic

Great news, I'd be interested in reading the book. Many others have advocated chewing properly.

Re: Linda's daily check-in

Linda, I really feel for you. Have you thought about having a medical check up, could it be a thyroid problem? Failing that my thoughts would turn to are you eating enough of what your body needs. Hunger is our bodies way of asking for what it needs for survival, denying it will have an impact. What...

I wouldn't worry about a well thought out preplanned extra mini meal, it's a lifetime journey and needs occasional adjustment :)

Stability over yo yo is much better.

If you are happy with your eating but still want to lose more maybe consider adding in some exercise?
