Hmmm, the only one of those I've seen were the manufacturers of a weight loss product who said they'd pay $1,000 if you lost weight on their product and told your story...after buying their product of course.
And Dr. Peeke: What are you doing watching TV from your elliptical? I thought we were supposed to focus while on exercise machines. Tsk, tsk. lolView Thread
That isn't good because of what the Dr. mentioned as "mindful eating". You should sit at the table and be aware of what you're eating and savor it so that you'll be satisfied. When you eat while focusing your attention on somenthing else, there is a tendency to eat more or eat poorly.
I have a wonderful husband with whom I share a great life and try to eat healthy throughout the day and exercise 3-5 times a week, but still get the urge to snack/eat late at night. I've come to realize that it is some sort of anxiety. I could finish a great healthy dinner, yet I'm already thinking about the next snack I want. I was never like this before when I WAS alone, and I don't know why I am now. I would like to find a way to change this behavior since I gained over 40lbs in a year and now tip the scales at over 200lbs and have high blood pressure for the first time. Is there a medication that could help? I hate the thought of taking drugs, but there's only so much fiber you can eat and water you can drink. I'm eating without even being hungry!View Thread
