How To Stop Overeating At Night
I have been an emotional eater for 6 years...*correction - I WAS an emotional eater for 6 years. At one point in time, I thought I would never stop overeating and conquer my food addiction. Most days I was happy if I could just have one day without eating everything in the fridge at night. But I found a few practical tips - and of course, some spiritual ones - to finally stop binge eating without relying on willpower or some magic pill.
Before this I tried every diet, pill, trick, and promise I heard to stop the sugar cravings. Each time I would feel so defeated when it did not work and would turn to food because I saw no hope. After a couple weeks I would try again with the same result. Sound familiar?
After 6 years of this I FINALLY found what works for me and today I am officially two weeks of no binging without doing anything crazy. Better yet, I have not had to urge to overeat at night or eat my favorite binge foods.
