Food Addictions! Hear what Andrew, Joanie and Chuck had to say!

Posted by   + Show Post

Recently we asked "Are you addicted to food"?

We wanted to know if you felt an addiction to food or if you eat for emotional reasons.

The Mad Life panel discusses this issue and shares their thoughts.

How do you keep food from becoming the focus of your everyday life?

 It's almost impossible living in New Orleans.  But I have to remind myself I lost 20 lbs, I don't want to regain them!

I take issue with saying it is as simple as calorie counting because the truth is *not all calories are created equal*! Instead of substituting mayo for imitation spreads, try making your mayo from scratch. Your body knows how to process real foods! You'd be amazed at how much real food I eat!

I try to keep my mind off of it.

Food is fuel for my body.  One's body is what one puts into it.

I think that I'm addicted to chocolate, but I find that I eat less when I find other things to keep my mind busy.

lets see, it was raining today and i hate to get drenched because it is over two miles to he local $ store for food. so, found a couple of really stale crackers in the bottom of my purse and then i shook out my service dogs food bag, that we take with us to long appointments and found a bag of kibble for him for dinner. hopefully it will quit raining tomorrow so i can get myself some food. i am so hungry.

When I want to go for sweets I distract myself.
