  • comfort foods by definition are foods that are warm and very filling. meatloaf, chicken pot pie, chili, etc. if you're on a diet though, they aren't so comforting. lol

  • You are very right, they really aren't so comforting, especially when you over indulge, whis is what a lot of people tend to do with them.

  • I find comfort foods are easy to over indulge in. i forgot they are so filling and even though I don't take much it is still more then what fills me up.
