    I’m a total mindless eater. I HAVE to be almost obsessive about splitting up portions when I buy large quantities so that i don’t just grab a container of something when I get that ‘itch’ to munch on something.

    Read ‘Mindless Eating’ from Brian Wansink and you can get more comprehensive and practical suggestions on making simple changes that will allow you to lose 2 or 3 pounds per month. This is the best non-diet book there ever is.

    Hi Russ!

    Yep! Extremely guilty here!

    My main weaknesses are Pringles (one you pop you can’t stop!) and Cheetos. I am a bit of a sweet tooth as well (Darn those M&M’s). These things are probably what is halting my progress from losing these “last” stubborn 5-10lbs! Another Great read Russ!

    P.S. – I just stumbled upon your site by accident (I actually forgot where I got the link lol). Like the many others here I’m also trying to get as LEAN as possible (my ultimate goal is the body Cam Giganet had in Never back down…yeah…I have a lot of work to do). I’m trying out ESE right now and pretty soon I’ll be incorporating The Vacation Body Blueprint and Visual Impact to my lifestyle (I need to read them first 😛 but I keep getting sidetracked by all these other posts you made! curses! ). Anyway, great site Rusty. My eyes are officially “opened” and I cannot stop from reading AND backreading all the posts. Keep up the good work!

    I’m not really a mindless eater, but I was a BIG eater. As a little girl I would eat whatever was on my plate, then eat what was left in the kitchen and then eat what was left on the plates of father, brother and mother.

    I am 25 now, have struggled with my weight pretty much all my life and I am now finally at a healthy weight! I do Atkins and I have gradually stopped eating so much.
    Now I can have a normal sized salad for dinner and just be satisfied! 😀

    I can proudly say – I am NOT a mindless eater and took me a while to work on it ..I took this approach: every time the food is in front of me I took a step back and thought about it, remembering what ate through the day and how much I can allow myself to eat. When my stomach sent me signals that it’s full, I have basically put the rest in the fridge (if I was at home), or into the rubbish bin (if I didnt’ want it at all any more), if in restaurant, I’d put the napkin on it, so I didn’t continue eating. And yes it was VERY hard.
    I’ve also learned how to chew slooowly as it takes about 20 minutes for our brain to get the signal that we are full, so stretch your chewing, also better for digestion, plus drink a glass of water before your meal, you’ll get full quicker 😉

    I am a huge mindless eater. Until about a year ago I was pretty overweight, but now I’ve managed to get my weight is check, build a six pack and I’m now one of the fittest people on my soccer team. However, I’ve just started a new job working in corporate relations, and many events we put on are catered and they always leave excess food such as pastries, cakes, sandwiches etc. I find it extremely difficult to just have one or two items, and often end up mindlessly eating about 10 pastries, 10 sandwiches and 5 cakes in one sitting. This is worsened by the fact that it’s all free, and professionally cooked (i.e. tasty).

    Do you have any advice on how I can try and ignore the temptation to mindlessly eat at work? I don’t think I can handle going back to being overweight and unhappy, but I don’t feel like I can stop myself at this rate.

    Hi Rusty

    I am a huge mindless eater from South Africa.

    I’ve read the blog and so happy to see i am not alone.

    Two years ago i managed to loose 18kg’s and have since probably only picked up 2 or 3 kg. I’ve been trying to loose it again but struggling. During the day i am fine, but as soon as i get home i want to eat whatever is in sight. I’ve removed most of the wrong foods and making healthy supper, but after supper i find myself climing into my sons treat drawer! i don’t drink a lot of water, i struggle with that. i don’t know what to do anymore !!

    I’m a mindless eater, but I’m also an emotional eater, and that’s a lethal combination. I agree with those who posted that not having stuff in the house that you know you can’t say “no” to is the best approach (and it helps to have eaten something light before you go to the grocery store, too).

    Somedays, though (and today, sadly has been one of them) I will eat even though I’m not hungry and I can’t figure out why. Same with sweet stuff — I’ve wiped out an entire bag of Oreo Double-Stuf cookies in one sitting, even though, as I’m doing it, I’m asking myself why. I feel like a marionette whose strings are being pulled from outside.

    Just reading through this article I ate 15+ baby carrots, three handfuls of cheese-its, and a handful of roasted almonds. That is after I ate two full plates at dinner. I have always been a huge eater, even as a child my mother would get dirty looks from people for taking food away from me because I wouldn’t stop eating. I have been luckily gifted with a very high metabolism and I don’t really have a sweet tooth except on rare occasions. I have just hit 30 and I am starting to notice weight gain because of my horrible eating habits. I am actually a very health conscious eater, being raised on an all organic farm. I don’t eat junk food, but my portions are completely out of control. I am a 5’5′ always been 130 female, but in the last year I am starting to inch up in weight and I know it is because of the way I eat. As many have mentioned they can out eat their friends, I can out eat all my friends combined. Its been a running joke my whole life that one day it is going to catch up with me and I am going to be the woman that cant leave her house because she can’t fit through the door. I need help and I am not sure where to begin. I’ve been told it is an emotional thing, but I am not sure it is. Also my energy level has severely deteriorated over the last year also… and no I have never been an excersizer but I am active. Please Help!!!
