Diet Rage? Never heard of this before.....

I actually tend toward depression rather than rage...and I have heard that depression is anger turned inward.


The term diet rage is new to me. I thought the points in the article were pretty interesting: comparing things about road rage from sitting in traffic to diet rage.

    Good article! I think this is a great analogy, and your description of depression as anger turned inward is spot on. Any path we travel presents us with challenges that might frustrate us to the point of anger. The path to weight loss and health is no exception. The difference is in the way our anger or frustration is acted out -- inward, or toward ourselves, rather than outward or toward others.

    I HAVE HEARD OF THIS. IF YOU TAKE SOMETHING FROM A PERSON FOR LONG ENOUGH - ESPECIALLY SOMETHING THEY LOVE, THEY CAN GET REALLY CRAZY ABOUT IT. THEN WHEN THEY ARE AGAIN FACED WITH IT, THEY REALLY GO NUTS AND WILL ATTACK TO GET THAT ITEM.

  Not sure about the rage, disappointment that I did eat something I shouldn't have, or angry at myself that I am not doing well but they are all negative feelings that do not help but hinder growth in changing eating patterns.

    Sometimes it is the rage I feel as I have some of the peanut M&Ms or the chips hubby is eating... I want us to be healthy but if he makes unhealthy choices why do I have to? So Just for Today I am going to choose healthy.
Then no rage. emoticon

    I'm not very nice when I feel I am being restricted or on a "diet" that frame of mind causes me general anger for sure. So, I divert from that thinking to something more positive and am a much nicer person to be around.

    REALLY? I think the only rage I could imagine was when I used to do deprivation techniques to not eat and in a starving moment, see someone eating a trigger food. I may have thought about tackling them for a bite!

    I don't think I woud be ready to hit the neighbor or kick the dog just because the scale and me didn't agree but I have heard of some very bizzar reactions to not seeing what they hoped or expected....

  Yeh, I think this is stretching it to make a metaphor. The frustration we sometimes feel as a result of slow progress is, as you say, more sad than rage-full, and more often due to our own inability to follow our chosen plan than to outside forces.
