Why do some people comfort eat? Is the quick feel good feeling worth the extra calories?
Well cindy dear, after I took my pork off the grill yesterday smoked West Texas Style and let it rest for about 2 seconds I was certainly comforted with the delicate spiciness of it as it filled my senses with glee. My neighbor and wife also enjoyed a bite or two and comfort was the word for the evening. LOL
Now today we will enjoy that along with my smoked brisket that has been slowly cooking for over 12 hours. I have guests coming later today and many shall be comforted by my masterful meats. Yes, it is a wonderful comfort food and this is only the first of many that I shall do this year.
ya it really does nice..
I cant be alive without eating..
Its my basic need as others
Mine too. Brisket slowly cooking for 12 hours... Sigh...
I'm working on a new hub on how to do brisket and pork. I will have it done soon. It will contain lots of pictures for you eyes to feast on and it will have all the info needed for your hubbies to do it right for you to enjoy. I've waited all winter for this moment. LOL
Comfort eating, makes me over weight, angry with myself later, and sometimes quite sick, especially if it is chocolate..
So why do I do it so often?????????
This is usually what happens, eating at first makes you feel good and live happily during the great taste but after the fatness will make you sick and feel sad... only applies to fast food or fatty food...
For others is ok.
I read an old Arabian blessing once that goes something like this,'May your wife break the back of your camel.' They know comfort food is a blessing. LOL
I've never been able to comfort eat. I'm quite the opposite. Strife makes me lose my appetite, almost completely.
I'm a Starvin' Marvin on occasion
Ahhh - don't! I remember (after marriage breakdown) going days without managing to eat anything substantial. And the horrible thing was, I was truly starving. I just couldn't eat more than a few bites. I even spoke to my doc about it. She said it was common, to have your apetite affected one way or the other.
I lost a lot of weight, unintentionally. I've managed to regain some now but not much.
By definition comfort eating is supposed to make you feel better...and it's perfectly fine to wallow in it as long as it's an occasional binge. If you need it too often you need help.
thanks for that...... I will get some ha ha
Brenda - yup. Under or over ain't great. I have thyroid disease which is unhelpful. And despite taking thyroxine (correctly etc) for many years, my metabolism remains very very sluggish. I've been tested (metabolism) several times and we (me & docs) can't alter it from what it used to be, no matter how precise my dose is etc. So I've been above weight more than under. However, I was blessed with long slim legs so even when I was upwards of 12 stone (don't know the kg's) I carried the extra weight off quite well. But - when I shed almost 3 stone, IMO I looked ill.
I'd rather be bigger, if I'm honest
Hmmm, I just watch comfort t.v. instead. Less calories and very comforting as well, if you pick the right movies This could be an interesting hub topic.
My appetite is fine until just about bedtime when for some reason I feel that I must have something forbidded before sleepland. I usually have what ever I have resisted throughout the day such as sherbet or cupcakes. Now I am being smarter and trying to fill up on popsicles or Crystal Light as the last resort. There was an article in Sunday's Parade that sleep is a great way to lose weight. So maybe my comfort food can be dreamed about instead of eaten.

If comfort food is bad for you but being happy is good for you, does that balance it out?

How do you motivate yourself when you are sad, down or sick?Especially when dealing with chronic illness, and an unforgiving work/study schedule, housework, cooking, additional (important) study, writing, personal development, and exercise routines seem to be often left by the wayside.Any and all...

I was in a sort of slump this weekend. I was just "blah". My mother and I went to the mall and I found a pair of sexy faux snake skin sandals on sale for an incredible price. I bought them, even though I probably won't wear them for a year. The shoes brightened my...

But i have to show that I am all fine and happy in front of my son and hubby. Its frustrating. Have you ever felt like this and then what one needs to do? It is hard to smile when actually i don even feel like reacting.

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come up below? I just don't want overkill but like the thought that I've got my...
