Addicted to Food/Sugar

I've been struggling with my diet as long as I can remember. When I was younger I wouldn't just eat three meals a day and a snack, I would binge a lot. Its gotten much worse today because I'm an adult who has a source of income. Back then, I was a kid who had no money so I couldn't buy candy or go to McDonalds whenever I wanted, I would eat or binge on whatever was at home which atleast wasn't as unhealthy.

Today, I'm in crisis mode. First and foremost, I can go to the fast food restaurant down the street and get a custard, order pizza for only $8, every week, I go to the mall because there is a place which sells cookies I really like, etc. Food and sugar are basically drugs to me and I'm addicted to them. Its gotten so bad that I'm considering giving my credit cards and money to my mom so I can be forced to stop this. For the past 10 years, I've spent on average about $3000 a year on just fast food.

I'm also noticing after having a meal, whether healthy or unhealthy, I get hungry again right away(maybe in 1 or 2 hours). I've had depression for 20 years, it make me wonder how much has my prolonged depression and it getting worse over the years, affected my hunger?

Re: Addicted to Food/Sugar

I know this is going to sound weird, but have you seen those Rob Lowe commercials for Atkins? I did and decided to just read what it was about so I could ignore yet another wacko rabbit food diet that I would never be able to live on.

It turns out on Atkins I am encouraged to eat all I want of Steak, Hamburger, eggs, veggies, sausage, cheese, lobster, shrimp, cold cuts, avocados...etc...no fruit, no sugar, no bread. But they have these shake things and they are very yummy! You aren't even suppose to watch your calories, it's nuts right? Couldn't possibly work! I've lost 20 pounds in 3 weeks AND it robs you of your appetite. So without carbs in my life it doesn't trip my hunger.

So go to mcds, get a burger no bun. Go to BK, get the chicken strips, go to DQ and get the hot dog no bun....this diet is so damn easy it's laughable! There is even an app, and bonus side effect, more energy, better sleep. I haven't found a thing wrong with this diet, it's a lot of my favorite foods. Maybe you should try this approach for 2 weeks and see if you feel any better?
