Hokay, as I study all this psychology 'n biology 'n sciencey stuff, I think I should try to eat better. I mean, I don't eat SUPER baaad really, but I eat SO MUCH ALL THE TIME FOREVER. Whenever I'm worried, or nervous, or even bored, I just chompchompchompglomp. Most of the time, I'm not even hungry. And usually, I eat fast and I'm always multitasking during my meals, reading or interneting or watching tv!

And well, I don't think these habits are very good! It's not very ecological or enjoyable. And it's not a very good way to save money. XD

So I'm thinking of eating differently. Mindfully, I guess? XD Not so much a diet, tho it is probably healthier.

I'm thinking something like...

♥ Eat only when I'm hungry
♥ Eat only while NOT multitasking
♥ Eat slowwwowowowowwww

Aaaand since I did so well at changing my habits last time on here, when I stopped eating fast food and rewarded myself with cute little Japanese toys each week. Even though I wasn't good at the 'posting photos' bit, I DID continue with it for two months and I managed to change my habits a lot!

So I think I wanna do something like that again! But I'll put it on a filter when I talk about it so I don't spam everybody!

[Poll #1603075]

I dunno if I'll buy the little toys again, but I'll do something like that. Cute little cheap things, like little crafty bits or toys or stickers. Hokay, maybe that's not ecological or money-saving either but they are still probably cheaper and less wasteful than all the extra foods and I'll probably only need to do it for a month or so, and that's not so bad. R-right?

I hope so. -__-

So, if you wanna be on let me know! Aaaand if you've ever tried anything like this, I'd heart any advice!

Good luck! I totally do the same thing and then as I'm eating (when I'm not really that hungry and/or doing other things and food is just a distraction) I start to feel bad but then don't stop.

<3 Hope it goes well for you -- it's definitely a habit adjustment for me!

Eating slooooooowwwwwwly is one of my new goals, too! And I need to work on doing less random snacking.

Good luck! It's definitely a habit-change thing. :D

Eating slowly is probably the hardest bit of it for me! I keep forgetting that part! XD

This sort of thing is something I really struggled with some years ago, but with a lot of work I lost 50 lbs and I'm eating very well now. It's a tough habit to break, but being very aware of your food makes such a difference. Best of luck with it :)

I'm doing something similar. Not reading a book or watching tv during meals, which is my worst habit. That and being more aware and deliberate of my food choices, not just eating at random, which ends up in bad combinations or just too much food and crap.

As for the reward thing, I do that, too. Every time I avoid a soda or sweets, I tuck away the dollar or whatever from it, then buy a hat or silly hair things or toys. It's a good system.

Yay, thanks for the add! :D

I can't for the life of me eat slowly but I'm trying to be as healthy (and cheap!) as possible and only eat when I am *actually hungry* and if it's 5pm and I am starving then I'll make dinner early instead of snacking or something.
