30 Bananas a Day!

hello everyone,

Im in need of a lot of help. I have been trying my best to stay high carb raw vegan for about 6 months, but its sssooo hard for me. I feel like I'm addicted to unhealthy processed food. I feel like I have no self control.

I was doing so good for a very long time but I'm sad to say i've been binging on horrible food lately. I'm hating myself for this because I know I should not be eating certain foods. I cant seem to stop myself or tell myself no. 

I feel like a little kid. When I pick up a piece of fruit, I can only take a few bites until I dont want anymore but then a few minutes later I'm cravings unhealthy food but I dont want the things that are best for my body.

I keep starting 80/10/10 over and over again only to binge and I mean binge on unhealthy food. All I do is think about unhealthy food all day... I crave unhealthy food all day. At work I have even put disgusting pictures of food as my screen savor trying to remind myself of whats in unhealthy food but its not working...

I think I am an emotional eater and I'm eating because I'm bored, out of habit, because I'm stressed...

I feel like I'm not in control... I dont want fruit or veggies my body is cravings all the drugs that are in all of the processed foods. I feel like a freakin crack addict. I dont know what to do...

Please help!!!!

Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated....

How come all the 'emotional eaters' end up undereating fruit and eating junk that makes em fat and feel crap?

How come all the people that laugh at the concept of emotional eating will be trim for life?

i dont know... thats what im trying to figure out???? I feel like im addicted to that unhealthy food... im trying my best but i end up messing up and going back to my old ways... i feel so bad and i feel like i dont have any control...

Try to figure out what you're craving. For example, if you're craving something salty like chips, eat a bunch of celery, or baby spinach. If you're craving something sweet like candy, eat some dates.

Make sure you're eating enough fruit. Eat a salad every other day, with different things like tomatoes or red bell peppers or scallions or something. Blend up a fresh fruit dressing to go on top (I'm actually thinking of trying tomato with apple or banana for my next salad).

Make sure you're drinking enough water! 3 litres or 96 oz a day, or until your urine is clear. Drink more than that if you can.

Stop torturing yourself with pictures of unhealthy food. All it's going to do is remind you that you want it. Put up pictures of fresh fruit and colorful salads, instead. Stop thinking "I can't have that, and I want it", and start thinking "I CAN have that, but I DON'T want it."

You'll do better. And don't beat yourself up if you slip. Just pick yourself back up and keep going.

Love your very positive reply.  Thanks for taking the time to write this.  It helps others as well.

What do you mean when you say you "laugh at the concept of emotional eating?"  Could you elaborate?

I'm struggling with this same thing myself.  The unhealthy food can be such an addiction.  I wish I could offer you more advice, but I'm searching for some myself.  At least we're not alone in the struggle and can maybe hold each other accountable.  I wish you the best of luck!  Keep at it....you'll get there!

I totally understand your frustration and pain.  Big hugs from me.  One thing that helps is to remember that you never fail until you quit trying.
