So I'm sure many of you know I'm on a mission to solve emotional and mindless eating
I'm reading this book and came across this statement and found it truely enlighting. While I still am not convienced I'm a canidate for intuitive eating or eating when your hungry, as much as you want, whatever you want. This really struck a cord with me.
"Deprivation and insatiability go hand in hand. When you feel you're not allowed to have it, and are eating it anyway, you don't want to give up what might be your only change at eating it. When you feel you're not allowed to have it, you are focused on getting as much of it as you can. Satisfaction is irrelevant."
This is exactly how I feel when I "binge". I have to keep eating because who knows when the next time I'm going to be able to eat something "forbidden" again. And when I go to restaurants and order dessert or something naughty for dinner, I feel like have to eat all of it (even when I'm past being full) because I don't know when I'm going to get to eat like that again. I really feel like maybe, just maybe I'm starting to understand my actions.
