Comfort Food

Food means different things for different people. Some eat to live while others live to eat, according to an old saying.

Food can be comforting to some people, and they rely on it when they are lonely, frustrated, or even mad. Others turn to a bottle of alcohol, so I guess food isn't as bad. But, it still can be a problem, especially when it develops into more serious eating disorders such as bulemia.

Late night eating can also be comforting to people when they canoot sleep, or find themself bored with what is going on.

When one is aware of the reason they are eating it can be better controlled. It is important to stop and think before eating more than just the normal meals in a day.

I have been thinking about food ever since I got in in the office. I want to eat good food for dinner.

I try to stay on a schedule for meals but every now and then I just have to have that comforting snack!

This is a topic I can really sink my teeth into. Cheese and salami and crackers is my comfort food.

I always stop to think before eating. First I have to consider what I will eat so I can prepare it. When the things I love to eat are in front of me, I stop to think before I eat that piece of chocolate. I think about how good it will taste, not how fat it will make me.

With everything, moderation is the key! I usually eat a bowl of cereal or some eggs for comfort food!

Food is very comforting to me at certain times. When I get a craving for something like sweets, I must have something even if to drive to the store and make a special trip.

I'm one of those late-night eaters. Bad for my butt.

I eat tolive, not for comfort. I find if I get upset or stressed,I tend to not eat at all.:(

The only problem I have with food is that I always eat fast because I have no time.

You remind me of that great saying of eat to live and live to eat. I fail to tell one from the other.

I am guilty of eating when bored, something I need to be mindful not to do. Conversely, when I am deeply engrossed in work, I often don't bother to eat, no matter how hungry I feel. I basically only take a break if I have to go to the bathroom!

I like macaroni and cheese and fried chicken. Those are my comfort foods. I also like chocolate (any kind of it).
