abur0418 Posted January 20, 2014 Share Posted January 20, 2014 Currently on day 18 and everything seems to be going fine as far as eating and I love the food I'm cooking and eating- I feel great. However I am starting to think that it's impossible for me to have a healthy psychological relationship with food. Some things I'm struggling with are this feeling that I need to stuff myself at every meal because (since there's no snacking) I won't be allowed to eat for several hours. It's not that I even get cravings/hungry to eat in those several hours, but I honestly have this psychological feeling that I need to snack and grab something from the kitchen. When I try to repair this relationship with food by intuitive eating and not restricting myself, I gain weight and feel terrible from sugar addiction symptoms. That's why I am trying whole 30. I need rules. I love eating the whole 30 way and honestly feel great physically. However I am having trouble actually having hunger cues and being able to stop eating when I am full. Even when I am full and bloated I still have this I impulse to eat more. Is it all mental? At this point I am definitely following the template and there's no way I'm not eating enough. What should I do if I really want to have a more intuitive relationship with food and stop impulsive eating? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
