Chatting to someone on IG who was complaining that she keeps overeating cake, cookies, ice-cream, chocolate and was mad at herself for not being able to stick to the plan she was on.
The plan she followed allowed certain amounts of all this stuff but time after time she would eat more than what was allowed, get mad at herself for doing it, not reach her weight loss goals, feel down and depressed, vow to stick with it this time and found herself back at square one, mad at herself again for doing it again and again.
One of my favourite nutritionists Cindy O’Meara featured Dr Pamela Peeke on her blog who was responsible for writing the book The Hunger Fix, which is all about overeating and food addiction.
See! I knew food addiction was a real thing that was affecting me!
I knew even before someone else had to tell me, because I figured it out for myself. This is why how you feel has so much more credence than scientific stuff, which can take years to catch up with what people are experiencing. If I waited for a study to tell me how to fix myself, I would still be overweight and miserable now. That means I could have potentially wasted 10 years of my life waiting for someone else to figure it out for me. No thanks!
