Hey everyone! I need some motivation tips on how to stick to my diet. I've identified most of the triggers for my IBS - wheat, dairy, alcohol, lots of fruits & veggies, fried food, etc... My willpower has been so good in the past. Up until shortly before Christmas (before the stress of christmas exams started), I wouldn't even so much as nibble somebody elses sandwich, pizza, chocolate, etc.., I'd eat healthy meals, make sure I ate every few hours, chewed my food really well, etc... I've got exams coming up though, and with all the stress, I just keep eating things that I shouldn't. I live on campus and don't really like the place Im living in, and none of my friends or family live nearby so I mostly just spend my time studyin in my room (its my final year and i need to do good so i can get accepted for a postgrad!). So early in the year, I got into the habit of eating trigger foods when I knew I wasn't going to be going anywhere for a day or two, because there was nobody around to witness the D, wind, etc... But now, I've just gotten into the habit of eating junk 24/7 in my house in college! I've put on loads of weight because of it, my skin has gotten really bad, my IBS has gotten lots worse, and yet I just can't seem to stop! Like, I'll sit down for an hour or two and write down diet plans and tips from the internet, and then an hour later, something will stress me out, and then my frame of mind just completely changes, and I just binge on anything I can get my hands on..pizza, chocolate, icecream, crisps, etc... I know I shouldn't be buying/eating the stuff at the time, but I just cant seem to stop myself! Most of the time, I don't even enjoy the food. I just eat it for the sake of it, and usually to the point where I feel sick. I'd really appreciate any comments/advice, because it's really getting me down! And please don't tell me that I'm being stupid eating things that I know are going to hurt me because I already know that!! And I know you would think the fact that the food hurts my stomach and has made me gain weight would be motivation enough to stop me, but it just isn't for some reason!! At the time when I eat the food, I can't seem to worry about the pain/weight gain because that's not going to affect me til later. All I seem to focus on is the food itself! I just need help getting back into my strict diet before I've gotten really fat and have made my IBS a million times worse! Thanks in advance for any comments/advice!!
