Re: help! i cant stop eating!

Besides toast and cereals, what are you eating?

Toast and (dry) cereals tend to be fast digesting carbohydrates that do not keep you full for very long. Oatmeal may be a better choice instead of toast and (dry) cereals, if you want it to keep you from getting hungry too quickly.

Foods high in water and fiber with some protein and fat tend to keep you from getting hungry for longer periods of time.

Like tj said, you want to make sure you get PROTEIN with your meals to help fill you up. Toast and cereal are high sugar carbs and make you hungry shortly afterwards. Try adding eggs or meat to your breakfast and make sure you are eating a healthy protein with your lunch such as chicken, turkey or tuna.

Hello,
I second and third what was mentioned in previous posts, but you might possibly be having some kind of blood sugar or thyroid problems. I may be way off, but you might schedule an appointment with your doctor. Hope you get the answers you need.

Re: help! i cant stop eating!

Eat protein..you're eating all carbs, which are digested quickly, causing a spike in your blood sugar for a short time, but then your blood sugar drops and your body tells you to eat....now you're going for more carbs for the quick fix and the cycle continues. Add protein to your meals and you'll be amazed at the difference. Good proteins.....milk, peanut butter, an egg, lean meat, yogurt, cheese.

Re: help! i cant stop eating!

Have you had your blood sugar checked recently? Dizziness can be a symptom of unstable blood sugar!

Re: help! i cant stop eating!

Dizziness indicates your blood sugar is too low. Be sure and eat protein with some carbs to bring it back up and stabilize.

You need to make adjustments in your diet and get checked for diabetes and/or hypoglycemia.
