I found this list on somebody´s blog and copied it because it was really food for thought…
What you binge on might reveal what you need:
Ice Cream - Depression - Needs soothing.
Salted Nuts - Stress - Need to take things more in your stride.
Spiced Foods - Restless/Agitated - More fun required in yr life.
Sweets & Chocs - Feels Childlike - Self-talk from own internal adult side.
Big Portions - Unable To Cope - More support required.
Creamy/Cheesy Foods - Lack of self-esteem - Some good feedback from peer group.
Caffeine - Need Energy - Physical exercise required.
Alcohol - Needs to block out all emotions with unresolved grief - Self management required.
Today I was invited by a friend for lunch – celeriac, potato and carrots baked in oven and porkchops from their own pig… nice. My friend cut the fat from her pork chop and I could hardly take my eyes from it. I asked to take the leftover bones home for the dogs (and yes, I live with a veterinary who gives no restrictions in giving boned to dogs…) but my sick mind was on that piece of fat – I seriously planned to pick it out from the bag of leftovers and eat it when I was on my own. This is equivalent to taking food out of trash cans… insane.
I went to the store and tried to find some pork with a lot of fat on it, the craving was really bad. But swedish pork is hysterically rinsed from any visible fat.
Finally ended up with icecream that burst my calorie plan for today. But that fat has been covered with dog pellets and served to the dogs… the icecream would be a sign for depression but today the icecream was a substitute for fat – when I couldn´t find any pork fat I thought about buying a steak and eat it with LOTS of garlic butter. Salt and fat is what I really long to binge on, wonder what kind of need that stands for? It was also clear that it was eating the fat on my pork chop that made me craving for more…
Thank you for reading.
