Default Binge dreams?

Hi guys,

Last night I had a dream (nightmare?) where I was standing in front of a table full of junk food and I was eating all of it! Just shoving it all into my mouth. The dream was so vivid that when I woke up I had the familiar "after binge dread". To me, this dream was disturbing and has stuck with me all day. Has anyone had these dreams before, especially when they had been on a good pattern of control?

Thanks!

Yup! been there, done that. Food dreams are scary when you have been doing so well and have been keeping on track! Don't worry about it too much though. Just be thankful it was just a dream!!

I dream about food all of the time, sometimes bingeing and other times food is just a conscious part of the dream (ie at a party or a restaurant and food is all around).

These dreams are so real that I wake up feeling guilty until I get a grip and know I didn't eat anything off plan. I've been on plan about 8 months now, no plan on going off now! But my brain is really wanting some pizza and Chinese food!

I have those dreams sometimes too. They were more frequent when I started my diet but every once in awhile I'll wake up feeling sick that I've fallen off track. Once I realize that it was only a dream, I feel fine.

I had a very unhealthy relationship with food so it's no wonder that my mind goes into phantom binge mode. I'm honestly not that bothered by it. I enjoyed whatever I ate in the dream and then woke up without any damage being done? Sounds like a win win to me.

Thanks guys! ChickieBoom, I love the term "phantom binge mode"! That's totally what the dream was and it was so scary to be in that mode, even if it was phantom.

You guys are so supportive and it's wonderful to know that I'm not alone with this!

I want to try this!! Next time in my dream, I'm going to eat like it doesn't matter! Cuz it won't!! (I wonder if it's possible to control our dream like that??)

Yes, definitely! I usually do Atkins, and whenever I get on a roll, I'll have a dream that I'm eating a potato. I wake up feeling guilty every time, but I take it as a good sign that I'm moving in the right direction mentally.
