Help me get through the temptations of food
These past 5 days for me have been so hard. All I've thought about is food. Every single second I'm thinking about all different kinds of junk food.
I've had the opportunity to eat so much stuff to, and so far I'm really proud of myself for holding out this long. I'm 17 so my parents make food every night. Knowing that there is good food for the taking and not having it has been so hard. I've gotten so close to eating to the point that I've lifted food up and had it barely touch my tongue. I'm constantly looking in the fridge, and smelling different things. Right now I just broke up an orange and was so close to eating it. I had it right up to my mouth, and I was thinking all I have to do is eat this one little piece of orange, and than the fast would be over and I could eat so much food, all of the stuff I've been holding out on over my 5 day fast. I ended up putting it down, throwing the orange away, and going and drinking water. That might have been the single hardest thing i've ever done in my life. As you can imagine my eating habits have not been good over the course of my life. I'm not overweight, but thats only because I've done so many different sports and have always been active. I'm like a little micheal phelps. Just imagine him trying to do a fast, after eating 12000 calories a day, despite the fact that he's so in shape.
I don't know how much longer I can keep this up. I've heard people say that after day 2 or 3 you're not hungry anymore, but it's 5 days in for me and I'm so hungry it's almost ridiculous. Is it going to get any easier? and is there any tricks or anything that you guys use to help you not give in to the temptation of food?
