I don't know why but I suddenly cannot stop eating. I am food obsessed, all I think about is food, I can't concentrate on anything else and cannot stop eating-am worried that I will suddenly put on a lot of weight-how do I stop this fascination with food?

Are you particularly stressed atm?

Not overly-have a lot on but I always have a lot on! grin Have moved house and I hate the new house, but that is the only thing that has changed. I've got through so much junk in the past week-am truly shock-I've eaten a double pack of custard creams and an xmas tube of minstrels in just the past 2 days (alongside LOADS of fruit to offset it obviously!)

I have the munchies too, after dinner I have had 3 bourbons, A mini pack of haribo and a packet of skips and I am ready for more. Thinking smash hmm Sorry not much help but know how you feel. Sometimes it is uncontrolable, I try to drink a glass of water everytime I have an urge and walk back out kitchen, for at least a while anyway.

I think it is stress and depression that controls my urges.

Have kept it to just fruit since dinner as then my tummy will get too sore to eat much more grin. SO glad someone else has the munchies, but your three bourbons does not trump my custard cream double pack grin-haven't had them for years!

sorry. avoiding crisps myself, think the long dark evenings draw us to comfort food.

Don't think it's worms [panic emoticon]-how would I know? God damn you food-am going to hit the chewing gum in a mo!

The only times I have eaten quantities like that is when preggers...

This happened to me when we were having an extension and new kitchen.
I got through the building work okay, but then didn't see eye to eye with the kitchen guy (and the work dragged on). I couldn't bear to be in my own house, so would go and buy a sandwich and a giant cake from Tesco's for lunch. Then we had to eat instant food with minimal fresh produce in the evenings, and I would start hitting the bottle at about 6pm. I think the whole thing was a way of letting off steam.
The thing was, I was constantly starving, and I put on nearly 2 stones which I'm now slowly losing 2 years on.
It's a shame you hate the new house, but if you really do then I'd say you're stressed - it's easy to underestimate the effect surroundings can have.
I hope you sort it out sooner than I did!

Yes but that was only since dinner, I had more bourbons and pink wafers earlier, limiting myself to some toast and pate for supper now.
