I have two problems with the way I eat.
The first problem is I have huge cravings for sweets. It usually hits around 9 or 10 every night, but I will go through phases where it hits me in the afternoons at work. I want ice cream, cake, cookies, candy. Mostly sweets and carbohydrates with fats mixed in for flavor.
I don’t want this because of any need. I almost always eat enough food at lunch and supper. I just want it because of craving.
The second problem is that when I go out I tend to order a lot and eat everything on my plate. For example, I get the 12 oz. steak instead of the 8 oz., and I totally clean my plate. This habit can get me really burned out on restaurants on vacations, and I usually feel bad afterwards.
I know I’m not alone. I see these problems happening in other people all the time.
How will these excess calories will impact my long-term health?
There’s no time for any more thinking right now. I have a big piece of lemon cake from my wife’s grandmother waiting for me in the refrigerator.
