Any Emotional Eaters Out There?
(03-31-2019, 12:11 PM)constant stranger Wrote: I used to be a pathological eater.  I didn't snack but I did methodically plan and consume four meals a day.  I actually anticipated those four meals beforehand with a lust of gluttony.  I was drinking a liter of vodka every night too.  And I was alone all the time.  Eventually I weighed 210 lbs.  There were a few untidy and humiliating incidents.  So I changed my habits and omitted one of the meals.  The other three became smaller and more healthy.  I year later my wight was down to 165 lbs.  It took another decade or so to quit drinking.
Now my diet is almost entirely plant based and again is very methodical.....but healthy and consumed in modest portions.....methodically.  I never regained that overweight.

Interesting, I had never heard of a pathological eater.
I definitely use food to distract from boredom and unpleasant emotions to the point of it being unhealthy. I'm not very active to begin with so that makes it worse. But it's either food or drugs.
