Have you EVER heard 'OMG, I need to eat cucumber and I need to eat it now!' Fresh bread, cheese, chocolate, ginger nuts, cupcakes - yes, obviously! In fact if you eat them really slowly they don't taste great in the mouth. It's just the idea of them.
The diet industry is so missing a trick - 'meals that make you feel full longer' - nobody eats because they're hungry!! What they need is mental challenges to enter the fridge (failing that devilishly difficult locks!).
I eat because I'm bored, lonely etc.I know - go for a walk, occupy your mind, don't keep stuff in the house etc. But get real - if I want a chocolate biscuit urgently I more likely to eat out of date peanut butter by the spoonful than go for a wAlk!!
I know I feel better when I eat healthy. Bread, cheese, chocolate etc make me feel ill but I still go there😡 Emotional eating is totally irrational.
There, that's me finished. I thank you for listening.
