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!
