Hi! When I get really hungry or I'm wanting to eat too much, I drink a large glass of water. If that doesn't work, I'll snack on some apple slices. I try thinking about my long term goals and invision how much better I'll feel and how different my life will be when I get to my goal. It makes everything I'm doing in my weight loss journey worth it. But if you're truly hungry, eat! Just make the right choices :) Good luck!

In the evening I've actually gone to bed early and I really benefited from that. I didn't eat and I got much needed extra sleep. What I thought was hunger was actually tiredness.

Hi Skypilot,

If you are truly experiencing the pangs of hunger, even if you are over your allotted calories for the day, you should eat something. Part of the journey is listening to our body's cues. There may be some days where you are hungrier than others, but ignoring the cues may lead you to completely abandoning your healthy ways.

That being said, if you are eating out of loneliness, habit, boredom, etc, you may want to keep yourself busy and distracted until the need to eat passes.

Hang in there and be strong!

What is happening in your life that you are wanting to binge? Is there something physical or emotional going on?

You mention being 'extra hungry today' - is it hunger or appetite? Have you been doing a lot more physical stuff today that you actually NEED more calories? Is your hunger actually 'thirst'?? Try having a glass of water and see if that helps. If not, then allow yourself something but choose healthy and filling rather than a 'quick fix' like processed junk.

I'm wanting to binge so badly right now! I've been doing great the past couple of weeks and I'm just extra hungry today I feel like and I just want to eat but I've already gone over my allotted amount for the day. What do I do?!? I feel like if I eat anymore it's going to tip straight into a bingeing frenzy :-(
