Hello from Europe!

Do I really suffer from eating an disorder?

I find myself eating all the time lately. When I’m at work I go out even up to ten times in order to get something to eat. Those are usually salty snacks, but I am also inclined to get chocolate and cookies, especially after I drink my coffee. I prepare a lot of food at home, too. I live alone and I noticed that I really exaggerate when it comes to the quantity of the food that I prepare. And then I just can’t decide to throw the leftovers, I eat everything, from yesterday bred and sour milk to enormously big pieces of cake. I prepare food for ten and just feel guilty if I throw something. I’ve gained about seven kilos for the last two months. This also scares me very much, I feel as a fat pig and loose faith in myself. I avoid certain job assignments that are performed outdoors and rather stay at home where people can’t see how fat I am. I’m pretty sure that this weight gain is caused by my eating disorder. Do I have eating disorder really? What do you think? Does it have anything to do with the mess in my emotional life and the stressful situations I’m exposed to?

Would appreciate your insights.

All the best,

Hey there, welcome to the forums.

Good to see someone else from Europe.

You can try drinking water with lemon juice in it. Squeeze about 4 lemons into 1 liter of water and it will affect your stomach. Your stomach will shrink because of the 'acid' in the lemons, leading to less cravings for food. Besides that, you should make sure you have a bunch of apples with you.
If you feel like discussing this a bit further, let me know :)
