    Am I possibly the greediest person in the universe? honesty about appetite within!

    hey guys..

    i have always been completely honest about why i am so overweight.. its not hormones or lack of knowledge or other people holding me back.. i am just GREEDY! - plain and simple... and i have a huge appetite!
    i see adverts on telly with people sitting down to a meal of 2 fish fingers, 8 or 9 chips and a handful of peas and i think ... wow, that wouldnt even begin to fill me!

    so now i am going to be completely honest about just how greedy i am... am i alone in this?

    I can quite easily eat a whole large dominos pizza to myself....

    Macdonald for me is 2 double cheeseburgers, large fries and a box of 9 chicken nuggets.... i sometimes even have an ice cream flurry too....

    I have been known to eat an entire bucket of ben and jerrys ice-cream in one sitting....

    I never split a chinese/indian dish with someone else, its always a full curry dish to myself with rice and chips and prawn crackers or naan bread...

    I can eat one of those huge grab bags of crisps to myself while watching a film, and then still want a big bar of chocolate afterwards....

    If i have a roast dinner i can quite easily munch my way through about 9 roast potatoes, and 5 yorkshire puds, and thats on top of all the other veg and meat etc...

    I have also eaten my way through an entire cheesy potato pie all to myself - i am talking about something made in a 12 inch square/ 2 inch deep baking dish!

    Obviously I dont allow myself to eat this way any longer - but this is the kind of thing i fall back into when i fall off the wagon... can anyone else relate?

    I can relate to that. Sometimes when I think about how much I ate on hungry days it's honesty terrible.
    I could eat almost a whole 12" pizza from a takeaway or a chicken legend meal plus nuggets from mcdonalds or the big crisp bag thing then chocolate then my meals.

    It's no surprise I'm so overweight! It's been eye opening measuring potions of everything to see what a portion should look like To combat it I've been upping my fruit and veg to make up for small portion sizes.

    I can so relate to this. My weakness is crisps and I could easily eat a whole 12 bag multi pack of crisps in one sitting and then eat lunch/dinner as usual!

    Yep, that's me too! I used to wonder if I was the only person who ate like that too, until I came on this forum, lol. It's definitely comforting when you discover there's lots of others who are equally bad where food is concerned.

    I now control my calories pretty tightly for the most part, and as a result have lost over 10 stone in the last 3 years, but I still allow myself the odd binge day every few months or so, when there are special occasions like my birthday or Christmas - it makes it easy to stay on the straight and narrow if I know that somewhere down the line I can let my greed have free rein for a day or so! It's worked well for me. xx

    Definately can relate... I still do that sometimes. I'm with Tracy, sometimes I just give myself the odd day, or weekend off here and there to eat whatever (and as much) as I'm feeling.

    Knowing that I can then jump straight back on the wagon is what gives me a sense of control!

    Pizza is my weakness too, though haven't had it in ages. Also things like toast with butter, so basically stodgy comforting carbohydrates... AND I'm a huge sugar fiend. Tried cutting it out and I got withdrawal symptoms, no lie! S'ridiculous, I'm trying to avoid it as much as possible now.

    But as for meals themselves, I'm usually okay with a smaller portion (if it's not something like pizza, in which case I have to eat it ALL). It's the snacking that gets me.

    Gosh I thought it was only me who did this! I just love my crisps and think share bags are a cheek!

    To be brutally honest I am not a greedy person really, I would feel sick if I ate a whole pizza or Chinese, however is confess I love all that sort of stuff and used to share it, I generally half it with someone, so it's still a lot to eat in one sitting, especially if you have it a couple of times a week like I used to. I've never eaten McDonald's or anything like that as I don't like them.

    I like chocolate but again it makes me feel sick if I eat too much of it. My mum can easily finish a whole box of Thorntons off and I can make mine last weeks! My main problem Is salty food, I love pigs in blankets and can finish off about 24 of those little bad boys in one sitting as well as a lot of crisps. I used to love Pringles but I stopped eating them in the last few months.

    I have just said to myself that nothing is really tasty enough to be fat and miserable over. That's how I have stopped eating the Pringles by the tube load. Thing is, even though I have cut a lot of the bad stuff out of my diet in the last few months I've still stayed tubby, so a big huh for giving up all my favourite stuff!

    These adverts on the telly are totally unrealistic - a mouse would still be hungry! No I feel your pain, every day of dieting I think about foods (large portions) and at the weekends I give into temptation. Like you I need large portions and tasty food. I've come to realise now (even when I finish dieting) I'm going to have to be a weekday dieter and pig out at the weekends. I must have been a camel in another life or something. I would never recommend this to anyone else but I know if I personally don't do this, I will be either huge, depressed or both :-).

    Annoys me it's always the crisps and chocolates they promote in supermarkets, never the fruit and veg.

    In a sucker for bread, really is my weakness!

    I can relate to the above too. Pizza is dangerous and littlehistorian, I too have banned pringles from the house as I prefer not to share the tube. Nuts are my downfall, as is bread, cakes, chocolate, take aways etc. At least I manage to not eat while posting on minimins!!!

    I too have an insatiable appetite which is magnified by 100 times if I have a glass of wine!

    Totally relate, but I don't do that anymore. I would NEVER eat a whole Domino's pizza anymore. I think a lot of it is down to blood sugar control for me because I just don't binge eat anymore.
