So You Want to Stop Eating Your Kryptonite Food 1. Indulge and enjoy, on occasion. One night of indulgence every once in awhile will neither kill you nor will it 2. Rethink it. Don’t imbue your food kryptonite with so much power. Instead, stay conscious about it. On the days you 3. Come up.

2. Don’t go out of your way for kryptonite foods. Conversely, you may be someone who is super sensitive to being triggered by your kryptonite foods. In this case, you can choose to skip them altogether. Kryptonite foods may show up unexpectedly at a party, work event or family function.

Avoid foods that contain sulphur dioxide, sodium bisulfite, potassium metabisulfite, or sulfurous acid anhydride: basically, they all mean sulfites. This food preservative is used frequently. Keeping track of your food may help you notice patterns in your habits. For example, you may find you prefer eating chips or chocolate, so you can try keeping those items out of the house.

I honestly think they are one of the worst foods you could possibly eat.” These are typically high in sugar, trans fats, and low in. That means I’d need to stop eating by 7 o’clock—not so easy, but I was determined. (You can lose weight while still eating the foods you love. Start dropping pounds with The Fat Cell Solution.).

So I understand if you want to do it less, and can share some tips. For most of my clients, this is predominantly an evening issue. It might also happen on weekends when there is some unstructured time in your day, and it’s certainly also an issue in high stress jobs where food. The foods you eat can have a major effect on your weight.

Some foods, like full-fat yogurt, coconut oil and eggs, help with weight loss (1, 2, 3).. Other foods, especially processed and refined. Rather, the key is to master your psychology. You need to address the mental blocks that trigger overeating in the first place.

So let’s do it! Here are the top 10 reasons why you still want to eat when you’re full: 1. You’re dehydrated. The psychological causes of overeating can be a bit painful to look at.

So we’re going to start with.

Of course, breaking this habit is even harder because of the many TV ads for nutrient-poor junk food—all of which are designed to send you into the kitchen for something to munch on.

  • OMG! These tips are so on point. Once I realized that true hunger is felt in my stomach, I learned that my mouth and eye hungers are false. This has helped me so much. Thanks.

  • These comments are sickening, I admit I myself as a overweight person have thought about starving myself but I pushed those dark thoughts aside. But these people acting like having a mental illness is cute or are like “lmao my parents would notice uhhh sis it really sucks out here ��” are so annoying and disrespectful and enabling to those in the comments who have or are currently doing this. Stop it, get some help.

  • Thank you Dani this is very helpful. I realized most of my hunger is only in my mind. Will practice these techniques now. Drink more water when i have fake hunger.

  • Such a helpful video!!!
    Two video tips: difference between full (from volume) and full (having enough energy). Secondsay to people that “more energy” from eating with taste hunger or just finishing the plate (doesnt mean eating past fullness) isnt harmful and our body knows how to deal and says us what needs.

  • Omg tell fast what to when u wanna eat something tasty but u are not feeling hungry or i will end up eating something watching this video side by side

  • Wow so funny, right before watching this video I started boiling my eggs to make egg salad, then I watch and it’s what you’re eating haha!! Best egg salad sandwich I’ve had, (whole wheat bread, Colby jack cheese, tomato, avocado, and egg salad with extra dill and pepper) and it was even better because I listened to my body when I became satisfied. I feel so much better about my body and have a way more healthy relationship with food now since beginning my intuitive eating journey and having no food rules.

  • Watching your videos feels like doing something really good for myself. I find your advice grounded in kindness and self-care. It’s what I’ve needed for a long time and I must be ready for it now. Thank you very much!!

  • It’s interesting to hear there are differing opinions of how long the elimination diet should last, because until watching this video I was led to believe it would be between 4-6 and 4-8 weeks long… Great break down video though, learned a lot about how the process really works so thank you ��✌��️ xoxo

  • this is exactly what i do:( right now i’m 17 & i am so underweight. i’m actually trying to get back to a healthy weight but i just can’t do it. i’m embarrassed that i have gotten so thin because my friends call me skeleton & people tell me they feel like they are going to break me because i’m so boney.

  • Wow I have been trying this, seriously was so disconnected I would just wake up and eat not even feeling real hunger only ate because it was “breakfast” tried this, this week and I honestly don’t get hungry till like 5 or 7pm thank you so much dani! Going to show my husband this so we can get reconnected together.

  • I just ate so much, i deliberately chose to make myself 4 trasts with ham on top of my tiny dinner plate I have to eat with my family. I just tried to throw up but I couldnt get much out and I feel so gross.

  • I have to ask, how often do you get stomach bugs? You REALLY should be washing your hands RIGHT before touching your food and not touching anything else like that strawberry container (imagine how many people had touched it at the store!) or the wooden table ( imagine how many dirty birds and squirrels crawl on that!).

  • so for a grown woman, 1,500 cal to loose a pound a week. what if im a teen and eating nothing a day? i should loose a ton more weight right? wrong. i havnt eaten in 37 days and have lost 15 pounds

  • Some small tips that might help if you want to lose weight:
    eat slowly
    sleep a lot
    drink a lot of water
    And the most important:
    Don’t starve yourselves!

  • I don’t want to look deathly skinny. I just want to be skinny. I feel like I would feel better about myself if I was skinny. It’s my one goal. It doesn’t matter how I lose it I just want it gone. I weigh 194 and I told myself I would never get to 200 or above. My goal is 150 but I would LOVE to be 130 or even 120.I’m doing a 7day water fasting and if all the hunger pains go away then I’ll just keep going till I end up how I want to look. I’ll workout on top of that. Only drink water and I will push through I need this. If I’m skinny I can finally wear a bikini in public. I’ll be able to wear crop tops, I can be the best me, the pretty me. I’m going into 9th grade so I’m going to highschool and I just wanna fit it. But at the same time I’m doing this for me not them I will push it to the limit and give all that I can give it. I’m starting Tuesday comment if you want to be updated

  • Okay am I the only one that watches videos to stop eating, but then it turns into a game on how long you can last with out eating.

  • If you.re a female and have kids and your roommates/ coworkers always steal your milk or coffee creamer, just write “breast milk” on the jugs

  • Bro I just don’t eat with my family. Like they don’t care, they give me space. Then when im alone I throw the food out… ��‍♀️ I feel guilty of course

  • I benefited from this! I mean, I generally, with anything, have a black and white mindset, and have anxiety so it was SO easy to fall into the calorie counting body obsessed lifestyle, ( and I say lifestyle not eating style cause it takes up your whole life! ). For around 3 years I have been so messed up with body image and have such a hard time loving my body sometimes but with your videos and my family’s help, I’ve come a long way! Sometimes I feel like I HAVE to finish the meal so I don’t waste, and I want to get into the habit of being able to eat leftovers so I’m not so full. I’ll use these tips. Thanks!

  • I feel a whole torso hunger, from my mouth down to my intestines, and I can eat, and eat, and eat, and not really feel ‘full’, until the painful bloat sets in rather quickly.

  • coming from someone with a Ed,ppl would easily notice that your plate has hardly been touched and that’s also if you have a judge plate of food

  • Bro I just don’t eat with my family. Like they don’t care, they give me space. Then when im alone I throw the food out… ��‍♀️ I feel guilty of course

  • i just hate how my best friend eats my food without asking he just takes it without asking and he will be angry if i dont give him some he’s a pain

  • Ive been starving myself for a month and a half now…and im trying to go for a year…its pretty easy being away from food…and when i get hungry i just drink water or chew gum…and if my parents cooks i just say im not hungry…and i avoid eating by sleeping all day so they don’t bother me…

  • For the last year I’ve been stuck in a binge purge cycle. If you include myself using exercising to purge its been over 4. However, in the last 2 weeks I’ve kicked vomiting and been using the gym. Thanksgiving rolls around. I lost all my progress. I just hate feeling this stuffed. I just eat like its an addiction. Its all I think about. Its like one part of me is set determinedly on losing weight and the other is just this mindless all consuming creature with teeth. I know once I go back to college and hit the gym again ill be fine. I know I’ll have a gym membership for December so the holidays won’t be as bad this year either. But I’m watching this video and mentally taking notes, preparing myself for times when I must eat around family or with other people at a time when I don’t want to eat. Food is a social interaction. When you get an ED you lose people. You lose yourself too. You isolate yourself because food truly is a social ritual that triggers other social rituals. They build on top of one another and when you cut off food, one day you find that the you curled up in the corner of your mind is now the you on the outside, curled up in the corner of your room.

    I’m trying to get better. I truly hope that I won’t ever feel like I need to use this.

    For the people just arriving, thinking you can control this?
    You goddamn can’t.
    You think you’ll do it once? Maybe you won’t again for 2 weeks. Then you’ll try again and again, lying to yourself and thinking you know what you’re doing-that you can stop at any time. You can’t. Not by yourself. You get sicker and sicker unless you reach out and even then its a long journey.
    Don’t go down it.
    The best decisions are the ones that don’t have immediate rewards. If you want to lose weight, work for it. Go to the gym. Eat healthy. Be around people who want to improve themselves so that they can be happier and stronger, not just to impress others.
    The people I wanted to impress are gone now. What I did pushed them away or made me realize they were toxic. Find people who want you to flourish. Please.
    If that doesn’t change your mind then know that I’m very close to developing an ulcer after just one year. Eating is painful and yet I continue to do it. My stomach fills with acid and air, burning my esophagus and my intestines. I lay on the floor in pain for hours. I go to bed wishing I could never eat again, not because i want to lose weight but because it hurts. Its agony. My teeth, which used to be one of my favorite things about me, are going.
    Its been less than one year of this disease and all its done is making everything nightmarish.
    Please don’t go down this path.

    For those of you already on it with me? I wish you the best of luck. There is happiness coming soon. It lies in our choices. Choices become habits and habits become life styles. Its hard. So fucking hard. Just know that things do add up. Make enough good choices and we’ll make it out.

    Best of luck, all.

  • Ok everyone, I’m making a game in my comment. Everytime someone likes, they will enter the game. Let’s see how many players we can get. Reply with your gamertag!

  • O I know I’m an emotional eater and I’m eating just because I want it. But if I don’t get it someone’s going to get bitch slapped or something is going to get broke.

  • Hi and thank you for your tips on how to not eat when you’re not hungry. But I’m starting to like food is addictive like smoking,they do hand in hand seems like with me. I’m a truck driver with diabetes,hbp,h-cholesterol, and found out that i have cancer in which I’m not or I don’t think I’m not really worried about
    My main thing is eating so much even when I’m full watch my belly grow. Embarrassing,watch everybody o. The whole health kick thing and me look I g the way I do. I. Which in so.e ways is a good band wagon and in some ways not. Sorry to sound so negative but I’m not looking for sympathy just an answer why!? Thanks,

  • I tried this last night at my family’s big dinner before Ramadan and it works!
    I didn’t eat SINGLE bite and no one’s noticed
    I literally haven’t eaten for 2 days no joke just black coffee and water.
    My parents always mock me for Turing to lose weight but now they’ll see.
    Edit: I’m 5’0 (152cm) and 125 pounds (58kg)

  • Ramadan starts tomorrow, which means my family won’t notice if I don’t eat so long as I hide from them during the morning and evening. And if they make me eat something I’ll use this as a technique and boom skinny fast

  • Im always like damm i kind of want some black bean noodles and 3 eggs right now and then im like no ill gain weight. I still go to the kitchen to eat them because I feel like if I dont eat it I will not fall asleep

  • You reminded me of the actual hunger feeling (run away on the streets haha). It is true however and thank you for reminding me and my stomach thanks you.

  • Your videos have me totally inspired! It’s so hard for me to get inspired to work out or eat healthy but I have literally binge watched your videos and it makes me want to completely redo my routines! Thank you!

  • How I keep people away from eatong my food:
    _
    Step 1: Mark your territoryby using some saliva

    Step 2: Put a sticker on whatever food with your name and a notice sign saying,”There is saliva on/in it”

    Step 3: Make them see you put saliva on it to so you make them believe it

  • I was on diet for a year and it’s difficult to undo the mindset. It’s really helpful to know that I can stop whenever I’m no longer enjoying food and can come back to it whenever I want to. My hunger cues are messed up, so am using the hunger scales. The most difficult thing is not to feel guilty when eating a big chocolate cake, haven’t tried cheesy creamy pasta for a long time. I have inherited hypertension genes, and because I’m menopausal, I would need to be careful of what I eat. It’s difficult to balance between what I should/should not eat and what I want to eat.

  • People have to realise that hormones have a play in this. Leptin and grelin are hunger control hormones. Also if other hormones are out it could completely throw out your hunger hormones. Eg. thyroid. Get your hormones checked!

  • Your tip of slowing down when eating and really chewing your food as truly changed everything. Thank you so much for these AMAZING tips

  • I struggle to throw food out. For example, that sandwich would be too filling for me, but I’d finish it bc it wouldn’t save well. Suggestions?

  • now im 16 when i was 13 i start to eat 1 time a day i dont know why my stomach is fine with that in 15 i start miss eat in 1 day my doctor say its not normal but i didnt have problems

  • I eat healthier than anyone I’ve ever lived with (in that I eat A LOT of veg and fruit). So it usually isn’t a problem. Too many people like instant food, I refer to cook mine. Not even a health thing, just a flavour thing, but it works out great for me heh heh heh

  • Such a helpful video!!!
    Two video tips: difference between full (from volume) and full (having enough energy). Secondsay to people that “more energy” from eating with taste hunger or just finishing the plate (doesnt mean eating past fullness) isnt harmful and our body knows how to deal and says us what needs.

  • i tried not to eat for 10 days last 2017, but in the 8th day, i nearly collapsed. i literally only relied on water for 8 days. after i almost collapsed, i tried to eat normally again but my stomach doesnt received the food i take and i only threw it all up. its until today, i cant eat lots of food in one meal because i just threw it all up. i also got an ulcer right after my 8 day no eating challenge ��

  • Thank you.i have anxiety and kind of worry to go hungry especially at work. This mindset will be a good exercise for an anxious person, maybe will help to spread it to other things in life.

  • Thanks Carrie, I have been on this program for almost a year and amazed how it has worked. I did have to enlist a dietitian, as I have IBS M and diabetes, having both is a hazard to say the least. It will be great when more of the medical community here is the USA start embracing this.

  • I am on diabetic med if I eat before I am truly hungry I end up sick..trying too learn my signals..thanks for information..my problem is other med will make me sick unless I eat something after taking med..any suggestions?what to do? Blessings.

  • 4:51
    Dude that’s not even the tip of the iceberg, trying to forcibly force liquidized food down the throat was what they tried
    Placing food in the cell, give me a break….

  • I had my dinner with you �� really enjoyed this video! Accessing how hungry you are beginning middle and end of the meal is such a good tip!!

  • my roomate im currently living with at my chicken parmasean gnochi, my butter mochi, my granola bars, pumpkin pie, curry, condiments, my other roomates pizza pretty much any thing that I have. I don’t know how to stop it.

  • i can’t do this, my family always has an eye on me. Every meal feels eternal, i feel depressed just by watching the food in front of me… it feels like i’m holding my breathe afterwards because of the guilty

  • This was very helpful �� I always tell people that I’m not hungry and I eat when I think about food: that’s the reason why I am overweight.
    But it never occurred to me that I need to listen to the cues my body gives. I know it sounds stupid but no one told me how to identity hunger.

  • The whole thing no eating 7 days is just mental. No hunger during the whole time whatsoever just the wish to eat but not hunger itself.:)

  • A lot of people nowadays are working to find out the best method to lose weight. Then again, being able to find a diet plan that can work for you is hard to discover. A crucial factor you need to comprehend is that a diet is effective for one person may not operate for another. So you have to understand what your getting into before you begin one of these diets. This may give you enough info to learn if this really is something that is appropriate to your requirements. Read more here shorturl.at/fjtMU

  • In my opinion this program has the quickest results with the least effort, and it’s quite popular.

    My sister and two of her friends look like totally different people now, to the point that it’s ridiculous! They swear by it.

  • Do you know you can loose up to 40 lbs in just three weeks without changing your life style, the way you eat or doing any exercise.. crazy right..yeah.. reply “how” and i will show you how…

  • My main issue is that sometimes i just think about food and want it, and i dont know how to stop myself from going and grabbing said food.

  • Thank you for this vid, I needed it! This weekend I’ve been snacking nonstop which I know is okay, but I’m finding myself not feeling the greatest because of it. Also, I loved that this video was a departure from your normal sit down videos, would love to see more like this in addition to more vlog style vids ��

  • Hey guys just checking in: have you eaten today? If not, please get up and eat something. You can do it and I will too, so let’s have a snack together�� also dont forget to drink some water and take a break from the internet������

  • this is exactly what i do:( right now i’m 17 & i am so underweight. i’m actually trying to get back to a healthy weight but i just can’t do it. i’m embarrassed that i have gotten so thin because my friends call me skeleton & people tell me they feel like they are going to break me because i’m so boney.

  • The sad thing is this actually works. I’ve done it at family meals and at skl where we literally had teachers sit at the tables with us cos a different teacher would come to the boarding house and sit with different year groups everyday for lunch and this works in front of every teacher who sat in front of me, i mean no one noticed.

  • Diabetics are a bit different though they must eat on some sort of schedule or so many times per day. I don’t eat anything for 3 hours after I get up because I’m not hungry and I wake up nauseous every day and food sounds gross. But 3 p.m.? I’m ready for my overnight oats or hot oatmeal or something a smoothie. I never used to eat until 9 p.m. at night and it was ramen noodles every single day for years. Then I went vegan and I am a much healthier happier human being! It works for me and whatever works for someone else should do what works for them.

  • I like this, really I do, I used to eat alot when I am not hungry
    But now is different. Now I am forcing myself to eat.
    Cause if I didn’t, this would my diet.
    3 Oreos
    1 ramen cup noodles
    1 Soda
    Water.

  • Kudos for the video content! Forgive me for chiming in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard about Dinanlinson Trained Body Approach (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great one of a kind guide for learning how to control your metabolism to lose weight minus the hard work. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my cousin at very last got amazing results with it.

  • Thank you for sharing wonderful thought, Dani!
    I usual eat meals by time and schedule even if I am not hungry.
    so I’ll try once to know if I am physically hungry or I feel like hungry by time.(o^.^o)

  • I am diagnosed with anorexia. But if I do this in front of my Asian parents, they would hella notice the leftovers. That’s kind of the number one rule in our household, no leftovers. Which is why I developed bulimia.

  • Why do you have so many problems? What’s wrong with you?! Why don’t you eat?! Is it made to catch some attention or are you just dumb? We all have problems, I have problems too, with my parents, boyfriend, friends, studies and also with myself cause I have dysphoria but Jeeez I surely don’t make things worse by not eating…why are you so stupid?

  • I feel a whole torso hunger, from my mouth down to my intestines, and I can eat, and eat, and eat, and not really feel ‘full’, until the painful bloat sets in rather quickly.

  • thank goodness never had to deal with roommates really except my bro at one time but he respects me to not take my food or at least ask first…

  • I just found your channel! I look forward to following your channel. I was checking out noom. I don’t have a weight problem. I just like to hear new ideas.

  • You could train yourself to eat and drink stuff people wouldn’t want to touch. You’d suffer at first, but learn to like it. When they go to get some they’d be grossed out and never touch it again. As for juice with no sugar, hide stevia or sugar packs in your room. Hopefully they won’t think of it.

  • This is honestly revolutionary and straight forward advice. I personally lost 50 lbs eating this way over only a couple of months. I hate being sweaty so exercise isn’t my cup of tea. When you said that you feel fake hunger more in your mouth than stomach that REALLY resonated with me. Because even though I have achieved this practice and have continued to maintain it for the last year that description has allowed me to now put into words the difference between these two feelings. The only thing I would add which I think is missing from much info about the “eating only when hungry” style of nutrition/weight loss is also portion control! If we are eating only when hungry but then eating too much at one time it will be such a long time till we feel hungry again that it becomes easier to justify eating when not hungry. So I would recommend that people also reduce your meal size portions to about 2/3 of normal (I just do this visually). You can substitute pretty much any amount of veggies to make up for the missing amount of your main meal if it makes you feel better mentally about the reduction in food. If you eat smaller portions, you will get hungry more frequently and therefore give yourself the opportunity and permission to indulge in the reward of food again! The biggest thing I have realized from eating this way is there is always more food. There will always be more opportunities to eat so we don’t need to eat so much at one time. Wait until we actually feel the need and then I promise you your food will also be 10x as satisfying and tasty than if you are just eating out of habit.:)

  • I had a roommate who would come into my room when I wasnt there and steal my chocolate, I started hiding it so she wouldnt find it and she would search through my stuff because she knew I always have chocolate on me. Notice how I specified that I HAD a roommate.

  • Wishing everyone who reads this and suffer from emotional eating/hunger because of stress/depression/anxiety/grief etc. I hope you’ll overcome this situation!

  • Watching your videos feels like doing something really good for myself. I find your advice grounded in kindness and self-care. It’s what I’ve needed for a long time and I must be ready for it now. Thank you very much!!
