RE: Still eating like a horse...

It's like a slippery slope, isn't it! Some days, you just find you want to eat and eat...
I find it hard to break that momentum. The kickstart has been like a circuit breaker - I'm finding that because I am eating tasty, filling food, I'm not looking for something else. When I make something not particularly satisfying in a hurry, or eat without paying attention to my food, that's when I am in real danger of wanting more.
Of course, some people do just eat more than others. It's about finding what is not only healthy, but satisfying and sustaining for your body.
Don't beat yourself up about it! Just tackle the next day as a new day. I read a lovely post on one of the old forums, where someone said (in reference to falling off the vegan wagon) that she just thinks of every time she eats as a chance to think about what she's putting in her mouth.
Stick with it! oh and I am stating the obvious, I know, but often the days when I keep wanting food are days when I've done a hard workout and not taken in enough fluids. I think I am hungry when really I need water.
