I don't think this is unusual at all and no cause for concern as long as you are satisfied just looking...there's a reason the term "Food Porn" exists!

I'm glad I found this post. I've learned to use cooking to make myself feel nurtured, but now that my options are limited (because of the specific weight loss program I am on) I found myself browsing recipes, building up my recipe book, and drooling over dessert recipes and figuring substitutions to make them healthier. I figure most people would call it torture, but I find that it helps me, almost like I am eating the food. Glad I'm not the only one.

I don't think it's bizarre. I spend a lot of time looking at recipes, so that when I do decide to indulge, it's on something that I've considered and decided I will really enjoy, not something silly like cookies from the grocery store.

This is actually a pretty common response. I urge you not to become a food pusher and ENCOURAGE others to eat things that you wouldn't. It can be a little manipulative almost and something that I used to do A LOT.

For me, I've developed a love of baking so I will make cinnamon rolls for my husband's coworkers since they're a bunch of men who eat junk all the time and have no qualms about eating them.

Regaining my pre-wedding body! Running, lifting, clean eating, lots of water and patience. Those are the tools that I will use to get there.

Since I started watching what I put in my mouth, I developed a rather weird habit... I often find myself checking dessert recipes or enjoying watching others have desserts.

So far I have not acted up (excluding the occasional planned treat). But I wonder if any of you have such bizarre reactions (so to speak)?
