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?

I try to stay busy, but when I get relaxed and want to eat i usually will try some fruit instead of potato chips, or if i have chips, which are my downfall, i drink alot of water with them

I keep busy. Sometimes I forget to eat. Of course I make up for it when I remember.

I do sometimes crave healthy things--like asparagus, for example. Yum! And green beans!! :)

Well in my opinion we crave junk because our body is in need of something else. And I actually do crave fruits alot of times. So i try to keep the house stocked with healthy options and dont even buy the bad stuff to resist temptation.

I try to stay busy and keep a water bottle with me at all times. If I do get hungry, I try to snack on healthy, filling snack first like apples, almonds and fresh veges.

I actually do crave healthy foods a lot of the times. I will want asparagus, broccoli, cantaloupe, watermelon or grapes. I have noticed when I do eat really bad that is all I crave. When I eat good I crave the good things. :)
