Bingeing on sugar-free syrup---emotional eating

Monday, April 22, 2013

At a restaurant yesterday I noticed a woman bingeing on sugar-free syrup. She was eating spoonful after spoonful of the sweet stuff until the bottle was empty. The woman was obese and I felt so sorry and sad for her. Was she trying to control her weight or maybe lose weight and the sugar-free syrup seemed safe ? That craving for bingeing on sweets had such a hold on her . Why do we binge on sweets? why not lettuce? why not green beans? something about the sweetness of foods temporarily fills an emptiness in some of us. I want to work on filling that emptiness with something healthy, something fun, something good for me that I really enjoy. I don't know what that is yet, but I am determined to keep trying to stay on a healthy path and lead a healthy life.
