Comfort Food

Monday, July 29, 2019

Emotional hunger thoughts appeared. I started thinking that I wanted a cookie; some ice cream also sounded good. I asked myself if I was hungry. The answer was no. I wanted "comfort" food which is an oxymoron because I always feel awful after indulging.

I chose not to eat anything. Funny thing. After choosing not to eat, I felt a lot better.

"If hunger is not the problem, food is not the solution."

    Yes - Judith Beck in the Beck Diet Solution explains that - the discomfort is not caused by wanting the food - it is caused by the indecision. Once the decision is made - either to eat or not to eat - the unease goes - and if you've decided to eat,, it goes before you actually eat. Glad you made the right decision!

    "comfort food is an oxymoron" love the formulation.
    Will remember it!
    And good for you that it produced such a sane response.
