    Stress eating

    I hear a Honey Bun calling my name. Screaming it, actually.

    Much stress today, compounded by lack of intelligent threads on the Turkenheimer forum (how much ryanh and botto can a soul take?) and what I think is too much restraint on the geezer forum.

    If I eat that Honey Bun, I'll have to drag it up hills the next time I go riding. This I find even more stressful, nay, depressing.

    So.... what do you folks do to combat the "gotta eat something really bad for you" syndrome?

    If you must eat make it something healthy - fruit, yogurt, etc. Of course the calories add up for the healthy stuff just like they do for the junk food At least you can feel good knowing the extra weight you're dragging up those hills came from a healthy source

    Get on the bike.. quick!
    After a long ride, the thought of eating some heavy grease bomb makes me wanna puke.

    When it's really bad, I cave in to it and ride more miles... uphill on the most caloric indescretions. I firmly belive one can have his cake and eat it too. For a price, that is.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    Aw crap, after fighting it for three long hours I gave in and got a package of chocolate donettes.

    I was going to go mountain biking in a couple of days to give my knees a break, but it rained pretty heavy this weekend so I'm probably looking at hill repeats again. Ick.

    Just remember, if you eat that Honey Bun, you'll soon be posting a "I passed a Honey Bun" thread. Do you really want to go there?

    Buy a bottle of Jamesons, drink about half of it..................

    Then I could care less about what I eat and eat the whole refrigerator.

    BTW, I don't have to carry it up the hill the next day because it's too hard to get out of bed.

    Raw turnips. So bad they'll break you from eating ANYTHING for a long long time.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Eat something that requires a lot of chewing. That way you can chomp the hell out of it and work off a bit of stress and satisfy your appetite at the same time. Watch out you don't bite your tongue. Then again, the flood of endorphins may help you forget what you are stressed about.

    I'm a carbo-addict from way back. Whenever I have a craving of inappropriate proportions, I tell myself "Not this time, maybe tomorrow [or tonight or this weekend... whatever you choose]. Then, when that time comes (tonight, this weekend, whatever...), I repeat it again: "Not this time, maybe tomorrow...". That psychological game of postponement (I'm not denying myself for long, I'm just postponing the treat until later) has helped me lose 30+ pounds. I do enjoy cookies, ice cream, and other treats on weekends and special occasions, but the rest of the time this trick works for me. Oh, and thinking about how I'll feel later when the acid reflux and sugar slump kick in........
