Back about July when I went to my brothers wedding I was a blimp. I had not realized how bad it got because I was afraid to weigh myself. When I saw the wedding photos I was HORRIFIED!! I instantly got on the scale to see how bad it was. Sure enough it was pretty bad. I was about 215lbs. For a 5'10 guy that is pretty heavy.. I didn't see myself as being as fat as I was until I looked at the pictures. I started running and working out everyday, but I would still eat. I toned up a bit but my weight after a month was still the same. Anyhow I am addicted to food. I love it, and cannot get enough. Used to be when I was not eating food I was cooking something to eat. I don't smoke so there was nothing to keep my hands busy so they were shoving food into my mouth. Well needless to say I bought a bag of seeds.. That seemed to keep my hunger at bay, and I was stil constantly eating. The calories aren't that bad for what I eat (usually about 300 or so the days I eat them). My blood pressure is still low (I usually buy no salt)... So basically I have tapered myself down to almost no seeds, and am OK from meal to meal. I know this sounds silly, but seeds really helped me to taper down eating of food all the time. the best news is that I have lost 45lbs since September, and am 10-15lbs away from my target weight! .. The seeds kept my craving at bay until I could control it. Right now inbetween meals I am not as hungry as I once was! I thank the seeds, but I am not surehow much of it was willpower. Anyhow, anyone have similar experiences? edit: I still do eat some seeds. Like right now I am munching on them, but I have gone from a half bag a day to a little more than a handful lol.
