Conquer Sunday Anxiety

I know it's going to hit, every Sunday. I call it "The Sunday Anxiety". No matter how hard I try, I always feel like I'm eating buffet style. It always creates anxiety, which makes me want to eat more. How do I conquer "The Sunday Anxiety"? What do you do when you feel overwhelmed with food choices? What do you do to not make you think you've blown it and throw in the towel for the rest of the day?


  1. I need help with this as well. I am a social and emotional eater. I just got back from Sunday dinner today and feel like a complete failure! The only tip I have is to take a pack of mint gum with you or a tooth brush. I have heard from others that if you brush your teeth after eating or chew mint gum that the taste helps you think you are done eating.

  2. You got me here too, the Sunday dinner conundrum. I have heard eating something before dinner is supposed to help. I guess that way you aren't going into dinner hungry or starving. I was actually going to try filling my plate with what I need and then eating my food really slowly and just enjoy every bite. I am going to try it at the cabin this weekend (since every meal feels like a buffet with ample opportunity to over eat). I will let you know how it goes.
