I have been struggling enormously with comfort eating of both chocolate and hot chips. And someone in my household bought cinamon fruit bread from bakers delight. It is just too hard to see it sit there and not eat any of it. So I did lots of slices.
I am still eating either a salad or a smoothie in a day.
Feeling so flat, sad, crying more, far away and alone at times.
I know for me I cope so much better and emotions are so stable when absolutely I only eat mostly plants, vegetabkes, fruit, a small amount of oats, seeds and raw nuts. And on occasions whole grain spelt pasta. Plus fresh juices. And plenty of filtered water.
My thoughts are more clear too. No brain fog. More energy.
Think I need to be honest with myself... I am addicted to the sugar, salt crap food. Only with those junk food I mentioned. I don't seem to turn to much other junk. I am unable to eat only one piece of chocolate and leave the rest for another day. It sucks. Wish I could. Truly like an alcoholic. I don't drink it. But this addiction seems the same. I can abstain from junk for a time..Maybe even a few months. Then bam that's it. Just taste a small amount of refined sugar in something. Then as the days go on, I want more and more. Until it gets so bad, like now.
It starts to make me feel my heartbeat in my head. Motivation to take care of myself decreases. When I feel sad and flat. I just seem not to care. I get headaches. I feel like crying ( not when I am far away though) that is the flat feeling.
I think I am one of those people that need to eat my personal healthy, I need to exercise, I need to sleep good, I need sunshine and fresh air to feel better in not only physical ways, but mental, spiritual, and emotional ways.
It is not easy when your household eats different either.
