I cannot control my eating of junk food

Postby hupline » Tue Jan 06, 2009 12:50 am

Hello everyone,

I am a working executive, working long hours and addicted to fast food, usually eating while I'm in the office. I seem to eat whether I'm hungry or not and have got to a stage where I am unable to control my eating habit. Unfortunately, my weight is increasing and I'm being forced to buy clothes a size larger than normal. I can devote a little time to exercise, but is there a recommended safe way to lose weight? I've heard of all these diets, such as Atkins, that don't sound very healthy at all.

There are alot of healthier options out there. Subway was a great low fat range of subs. Sushi is good. Making your own lunches etc.

Have healthy snacks available to you at work eg: fruit, low fat yogurt, nuts, tuna etc.

Good question. I think you need to look at whether or not you really need to be in your office in your lunch break. Perhaps just being outside for 1/2 hr a day would kick you out of that habit. You could use that time to plan what you would eat the next day. Check out some of the posts here for plans etc but a lot of people are using or his books.
Let us know how you go.
