    Unhappy I Keep Overeating! Help!

    I am really upset with myself over this. I am a former sufferer of Anorexia and since I started to Primal diet lifestyle i've been eating more than I've ever allowed myself but I am gaining weight because I just override my natural point of satiety.

    How can I stop doing this?

    I am really struggling with my weight and if I don't sort this out I'm terrified I will resort to my old behaviours to sort it out, not something I ever want to do again.

    Thank you in advance xxx

    p.s. I am 25 year old female at 5ft 3inches. I don't know what my weight is I avoid scales although I have been a normal weight for about a year now but it keeps increasing, but I know from my clothes that my weight continues to creep up so right now I just want to stabilise losing weight would be a bonus but I just need to get my bearings and its just not happening.

    Are you male or female, how tall are you, what is your current and target weight?
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Are you judging over eating because you feel stuffed afterwards? To the point of being uncomfortable? It happens to us all sometimes. For me only when I cook too much food and feel bad throwing it away. So my advice would be to pay close attention to the food you prepare and make sure it is not too much. Keep snacking foods out of the house might help also.

    I find I eat more when I am close to my cycle or I've started the day with fruit or some such carb. If I stick to mainly protein for breakfast like bacon and eggs and hold off on the fruit until at least lunchtime I am not as inclined to eat as much.

    I wish I had leftovers, I prepare enough for what seems like 10 people but I have three sons, two are teens, and they eat everything I make so no leftovers to munch on later. If you want I can loan them to you

    hi, i hope you find advice you can work with here, but i'm writing to recommend that you seek professional assistance with issues like this. it can be a huge help for (what i'm sure you know!) are serious problems. good luck.

    This. Chances are no amount of recommendations for bonebroth/iodine supplementing/macro-rearranging is going to help much with underlying psychological issues you have with eating.

    Hi,

    The book Women, Food and God by Geneen Roth really helped me with emotional eating. Essentially, the compulsive/emotional eating needs to be addressed before any diet will really work. I love her books and her messages. Her book has made it a bit easier for me to embrace the Primal Diet because I don't look at it like a diet or a way to manage my weight but as something I want to do to take care of myself.

    If you mean by you're outgrowing your clothes of size 0, it may be in your best interest to ride it out and continue overeating until your hormones and behaviors self-regulate.

    You sure you aren't gaining weight because you need to?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
