why do I think about food so much

Saturday, February 23, 2019

I think about what I ate last. I think about what I'm going to eat next. I think about what I'd like to eat but won't at least not today. I think about what I'll eat on my next free day. And some of the ads here don't help especially when it is food that I'd love to be eating. I maybe controlling most of the time what I eat but I worry about the amount of time I think about eating. Is this normal? I'm really not sure.

    For me, it's the thinking about food that leads to the compulsive overeating. I have to keep busy to keep those thoughts at bay. emoticon emoticon

    I understand too its difficult not to be thinking and planning meals but planning is good it prevents splurges and enables you to be prepared and sensible with meals. I find that as long as i'm not too hungry, ie when my belly's full i'm okay. Tonight I just filled up on baked beans on toast Lol
    Keep going your doing well hun!

    I did have period like that. I have them rarely now. I am not in diet mode anymore and that helps a lot. I chose to eat when it is time and just work on not over eating. since I've started doing that, food is no more a demon. It's a fact of life so I don't think about it that much.

    Hope you find your way of making it less of an issue. hang in there.

    When I don’t overthink it, the food issue becomes less of one. Being busy helps.

    Well, it does sound like there could be an issue, especially if YOU feel like it is. I know for me, I had to get my mind turned around in my relationship to food. Food = fuel and medicine. That's it. I assigned too many human qualities to it. Once I rearranged my thinking to merely consider food as nutrition, slowly my health improved because I ate better, wasn't constantly thinking of food.

    And planning my meals . . . that helped tremendously. No questions . . . my meal was prepared and waiting for me. There was no last minute scrounging and ending up eating unhealthy choices because I was HUNGRY.

    I guess I had to acquaint myself with what true hunger felt like, too.

    Hope these things help a little.
