i'm currently back into doing the gym/eating healthy, and while i'm doing a great job of accomplishing both of these; i'm still having a very hard time putting the fork down. which is pretty much wasting the hours i spend at the gym...
too be honest, over the past few years i've let myself go; and by "let myself go", i mean, i've gained roughly 120 lbs. yep, you just read that. i'm weighing roughly 318 lbs. and while gaining all this weight, i've sorta learnt the bad habit of not putting the fork down, even when my belly is full.
so, yeah, it's a tad bit embarrassing for me to even ask this question, but i was curious if any of you workout junkies know of anything i can do to help inhibit my appetite? yes, i'm drinking a lot of water. yes, i'm still powering through my belly being full of said "water" and still shoving a lot of food down my throat... quite literally embarrassing, but i'm trying too be honest here.
please note that i want accomplish this without the use of gnc (and anything related to them) products.
any advise would be greatly appreciated.
edit* i forgot to mention that i do make small plates, but i will just end up getting up and making more. this is starting to hurt my wallet a bit, since healthy food isn't cheap. i'm seriously at a loss, and don't know if what i'm doing is psychological at this point.
