    scared to eat!!!!

    So I'm a good way through my second week and so far feeling really into this, BUT I'm scared to have a meal ( or even add any veg ) I have had so many false starts to this diet and I will not let this be another one. The problem is I have to cook a birthday dinner for my mother in law tonight so I'm doing roast chicken and veg (veg that I can have) along with other stuff for everyone else so that I can join in and stay on the plan. I just feel like I'm breaking it in some way even though I'm not, but having just stuck to the packs so far I worry that I can trust myself.

    I'm the same as you! I have my Aunties birthday meat at Jimmys in the 02, its all you can eat buffet and worst of all its actually amazing food (look at the website if you dare, I nearly ate my screen)

    I've told myself I'm only going to have chicken or fish and veg. If I DO cheat I have to do 2 bootcamp classes in the gym on Monday and Tuesday (hopefully that will scare me)

    Just remember why you're doing it I guess, all the same food will still be there when we are skinny and we will enjoy it more

    I don't come on here often but just felt like I should reply to this as I'm in the same situation. I might even take an unflattering picture of myself naked on my phone and keep looking at it throughout the meal if I feel to cheat. I sound so positive but I know there is carrot cake there...I can hear it calling me already. The worst thing about bad food is its only a few seconds of the taste and then its gone...its never really worth it.

    Anyway good luck, have a lovely dinner! You've done well so far just remember you can always start again if the worst does happen, don't beat yourself up about it too much. X

    thanks hun for the reply, its just so hard when you just dont trust yourself! It's not that I think I'm going to eat the things I shouldn't its more that I'm scared to eat ANY "real" food, it's almost like I think it might make me want other foods as well.x

    nd get straight back on it, but this time, one meal (even an allowed meal) and I am straight off the wagon. When I re start I won't be having a morsel that doesn't come from a pack.

    Know what you mean. I was 100% for 2wks and thought I'd have some food. BIG mistake! 3wks later i've still not got back on the wagon and have been gaining Going to really try and start tomorrow, but I'll be avoiding food! So if you're weak willed like me, avoid the food!

    I so could have written this, I am so scared to eat food, I have been on 4 packs a day for 4 months now, with no real food and the longer it goes on the more worried I am getting about ever being able to eat food again : ( I wish I had mixed around 4 packs and 3 packs and a meal earlier in the diet so that it would not be so daunting. So I think you are doing the best thing, good luck.

    Diet: Ermm...
    Height: 5ft5in
    Hello

    Stumbled upon this thread and just wanted to ask a question...when you all say you havn't had any food, is that because you're doing 4 packs a day rather than the meal? Can I ask why you chose that option? I'm currently deciding whether to do 3 or 4 a day and Im leaning towards 3 cost wise but the thought of not having to think about regular food at all sounds much simpler! I'm looking to lose 3 stone asap so would love your opinion!

    For my first 6 months I did 4 packs a day, no veg, no milk. This was a really useful time for me in reassessing my relationship with food. I always said I could lose the weight if I could give up food and that's what I felt I had done. For the last 4 months of my diet I moved to 3 packs and a protein meal (I also upped the calories to 800 a day). I felt like this was a slow way of reintroducing food and changing portion sizes and the type of food I ate. By the time it came to maintenance I wasn't scared of the food. I think it would be really tough to go from 4 packs back to eating food completely in a short period.

    I have food at the weekends, but am terrified to eat anything that has not been very carefully planned in advance. I am not at a place yet where I could go out for a meal.

    I now watch my calories and go up and down a bit in weight. I keep my carbs reasonably low and eat lots of protein and fats.

    It's good that you're worried - it means that you're paying attention and recognise the problem. I think I will always struggle withh my weight - but now I struggle at the lower end rather than the higher one. Maintenance is a bit of trial and error as the solution is often very individual. Once I'd lost the weight I started to exercise really hard with personal trainers. I'm now physically really fit and building the muscle has also helped me to increase my metabolism. I also go through different eating approaches to see how they work for me. Most of the time I use MFP and stick to a calorie limit every day. I also use things like the Beck Diet Solution approach to help me keep the right attitude. Basically I use anything at might help!
