    Default Emotional eating.

    If I'm going to come clean, this is a major issue for me and no doubt it's 99.99% of the reason I fail reaching my goals.
    If I'm training and have a plan, my diet is is great, I plan my meals, I stick to the plan and results slowly follow.
    Recently I did an injury whilst lifting, I convinced myself I needed the rest anyway so relaxed a little on the food for a week. Decided to lift again, injury was still aggravated so I continued on my relaxed diet, then this leas into a weeks holidays I had planned so convinced myself I'd start again after the holiday but this was just before easter and so the chocolate eggs came out and a week after easter I had a camping trip book so put the diet on the back burner til I got back and when I did get back was only 2 more days til the next long weekend and here I am.
    1 month of eating crap and no workouts and it's no surprise I feel like crap.
    So for me I have a major issue, I'm either all in or all out. As long as I remember food has been a treat or something to enjoy but I gotta break this habit.
    So I need to learn some hard truths and get to the root cause and I'm being vulnerable here by admitting my weakness and lack of discipline.

    I was reading an old PTC transformation blog where Markos writes about emotional eating and his cure so to speak was for 2 weeks, 185g of Tuna and vegetables 5 times per day. Extreme yes, but is it worth a shot for someone weak willed like me?

    Who or has anyone overcome emotional eating?

    Cheers

    Harden the fuck up.



    You are looking for some sort of "secret", maybe a magic pill of some sort or a guru who will open your eyes to the truth.

    Bottom line, you are responsible for what you do. The answer is to stop phukking around with "rest" and "holidays" and all those other piss weak excuses you are leaning on. YOU are responsible, so when you go off the diet, it's not "emotional eating", it's you not doing what you are supposed to do. And you know it.

    I needed the rest anyway so relaxed a little on the food for a week
    Why?

    What you eat has got stuff all with what you are doing in the gym when eating for fat loss. The only relationship is that the exercise helps your eating goals. So, why give up on the diet just because you can't go do deadlifts?

    This just shows a lack of commitment and determination. It's like all those interwebs posts about needing "inspiration", usually showing someone who is looking for attention doing yoga at sunset at the beach or on top of a mountain. Inspiration is for those without commitment.

    So, if you are on a diet and you REALLY want to lose fat, why are you anywhere within a 10km drive of any sort of chocolate? Or other crap food. Did you not go through your pantry with a big cardboard box and get rid of all crap food, processed food and anything not on your diet list?

    If you want to diet for fat loss, just do it. You don't need an extreme diet. That's for advanced dieters. For a beginner, just get rid of the crap. You just need a balanced diet using real food with a slight caloric deficit. Anything more than that, you will either rebound or fall off the wagon.

    What @WoodyAllen said. Just clean out all the bad food feom
    your house and when you buy food ask yourself 1 simple question. Will this food help or hinder my goals? You are a grown adult and I am sure by now you know whether a chocolate egg is helping or hindering. If you can't do this you either don't want it enough or your lazy !!! A couple of other tips may help, the first is to do what @Goosey said, go out and do stuff and then you will have less chance to boredom eat, the second tip is to never eat in front of the Tv, computer, iPad, phone (no screens). Eat at the table as a meal only. Good luck with it.

    IT never hurts anyone to stay a little hungry all the time, it is in fact actually healthier in the long term

    I don't think tuna and veg all day erry day is the answer. It'll probably just give you massive cravings. You can still have things you enjoy, maybe not as frequently and in more moderate quantities. Whether that's a small treat daily, a 'cheat' meal every few days or whatever. At the end of the day you need to change your eating habits. Unfortunately there is no easy way. Dieting sucks, plain and simple. But it does get easier, and as habits change a different diet becomes the norm.

    Thanks to everyone who only reiterated what I had already admitted.
    Getting out and doing plenty is not the issue.
    As I said it's when I stop the plan for whatever reason I have the mental breakdown. Yep it's weakness I know that and not looking for justification, some practical advice like harden up always works I guess 🤔.
