Default Does anyone else overeat fruits and veggies?

Hi all,
This is my 1st time on this site. As a matter of fact, it's my 1st time admitting to anyone this deep dark secret of mine. I am a vegan overeater. Many days I eat 3000 calories worth of fruits and veggies. To some this might not seem like a problem but I am finally realizing that I need help and support. I am constantly thinking about food. I cannot concentrate at work. I'll eat POUNDS of grapes in a sitting, dozens of clementines, obscene servings of vegetables.

I feel so bloated all the time. I know that most of the time I am not even actually hungry. I always thought fruits and vegetables were harmless and should be eaten guilt-free but I feel so much shame. I feel the lowest of low right now. I've starting drinking zero-calorie drinks and use about a dozen packets of "sweet & low" each day just to try to curb my appetite. I know this is a terrible for my body.

Does anyone else overeat fruits and vegetables? Are there any other vegan overeaters? I feel so alone. Nobody seems to believe that it is possible to struggle with weight issues when you are a vegan.

Eating when I'm bored or stressed is a killer, but if I grab an apple or some other fruit I'll kill the craving.

Kit, welcome, glad to have you join us. I suggest you look for a Challenge or Support group to join; small check-in groups make it easier to connect, get involved, and be accountable. We have groups centering around specific diets plans, themes, or age groups, so find one that inspires you and just post to join! Be sure to check out the Vegetarian chicks. http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/vegetarian-chicks-121/

Thanks for the advise. I think that's a great idea to join a vegetarian support group!

I overeat fruits if I get a bunch of them. So I don't buy as many now. Especially tangerines, I could eat like 7+ in one sitting.
