Thanks for the advice!! I’ve tried writing down everything I eat, but I guess I was too curious/anal about it that I still looked up the calories to everything I was writing down and kept track that way. I’ve also tried planning snacks for every 1.5-2 hours (pretty much what I currently do) and that might be contributing to how much I think about food. I need to wait until I’m hungry to eat, but unfortunately my brain/stomach doesn’t really know what it’s hungry vs. when it wants to eat even though it’s not hungry.
I may try MyFitnessPal for a week and see how I do with that, and I looked into Intuitive Eating… the new edition comes out next month! There are so many more important things in life than counting calories and sticking to a strict workout schedule… I just need to get to the point where I can stop obsessing so much, but still maintain a healthy lifestyle. I’ll be trying new techniques until I find something that works for me! :)
