Off the Pill ... and can't stop eating!
Thu, 06-12-2003 - 11:34am
I have been off the pill for 1 1/2 months and all I do is want to eat! It doesn't matter what time of day or what kind of food. I want it all ... I was never like that before when on it or even before I ever started on it! Does anyone have any ideas on what to do to stop the food craving?

I don't know how to help you, but I know when I went off the pill I gained 10-15 lbs. I don't remember being hungry and eating a lot, but I might have and just not realized it. Atleast you are realizing that you are eating all the time. A couple of suggestions might be drinking more water to fill you up or eating things such as popcorn which is low in calories and fat.

I think the suggestion of drinking more water is probably your best bet, along with just plain 'ol self control. I can not preach about self-control though since I am horrible about dieting!!!

Good Luck,
