I usually have really many so I decided last week to change my rules to something more doable since I live with my parents. I don’t follow any calorie restrictions, instead I just try to eat as little as possible
1. no snacks ever!

2. eat only when asked/made to

3. Never take more food(aka second or even third helpings)

4. chew food slowly

5. Drink loads of water

6. Avoid sugar, salt and carbs and bloats stuff

7. never talk about food

8. never eat after eight thirty

9. do exercise or atleast be very active


these are the ones I can think of.

tbh i'm trying so hard this relapse to not make rules, or to reframe my thinking around rules. "i get to eat vegetables," rather than "i must eat vegetables" etc. idk, maybe it's dumb but it helps me not ~*suffer*~

Actually my rules kind of change on a daily basis. I like to make them every morning in my head and then I typically end up following them. The variety keeps me feeling more in control I guess? Maybe? I have no idea why I do it. Maybe I'm just indecisive.
