I don't have to look at that post - I definitely am an emotional eater. :)

♥ Sonny ♥ said...

Happy, I eat~!
otherwise I'm an emotional Starver.
If I get emotional, my need for food shuts down and its hard to think about food at all..
Food just doesnt " Fix It" for me.

LL Cool Joe said...

Nope not really, the opposite. Well I mean if I'm down or stressed I eat less, it's when life is ticking along nicely I eat too much. The best way for me to lose a few pounds is for something tragic to happen.

Maybe that's emotional lack of eating?

Cliff said...

I read it. I got stuck on #4, using food to express love.
Is aerosol whip cream considered food?

Granny Annie said...

Lynn -- I am surprised believing you have tremendous resolve. What do you feed your emotions with...sugar? chocolate?

Sonny -- My sister is a emotional starver. I however eat when I am happy and eat when I am sad.

LL Cool Joe -- Doesn't sound like a very good diet plan.

Cliff -- Do you happen to have any chocolate Redi-whip? Our Walmart doesn't have any and I need some for my next emotional crisis. Using food to express love...for FOOD.

Bread and cookies. My demise when I am feeling blue.

Jeanie said...

Oh yes....sugar is my emotional cure.

Seriously Though said...

I am an avoidance eater. when I don't want to do something or think about something I really need to do or think about, I eat instead. avoid, avoid, avoid, avoid, in goes the comfort foods

Scarlet said...

I get that way with chocolate, espresso, bread and wine...but nothing else can tempt me. These things do satisfy me emotionally, so they're hard to turn down.

cube said...

I eat less when I'm stressed. Not even my favorites, bread, pasta and rice, can tempt me when I'm really down.

Riot Kitty said...

I'm not an emotional eater, but I like "comfort food," if that makes any sense. (And being partly Irish, I never met a potato I didn't like.)

Chatty Crone said...

YES!

Snaggle Tooth said...

Every time I have a close call n am so glad to still be alive I need chocolate ice cream- More like a celebratory Affirmation- "I'm Alive!"
Occasionally I'll eat only chocolate things for an entire day... I think it's cravings, not emotional really.
I don't eat as a response to stress- I'm more likely not to eat when upset.

But I like my mashed with homemade turkey gravy better! n Cranberry sauce. Almost time for that again-

Shionge said...

Hmmm....sometimes I must say I do especially when it is near my period I alwsays craved for chocolate ;)

Oops,time for a bar heheheheh....so do you reckon I am emotional eater?

cranethie said...

Like lots of your other readers Annie - I eat here there and everywhere for no reason at all.
If I'm on my own and busy I eat anything at hand thats raw - can't be bothered to cook - and that will definitely include nuts, potato chips and chocolate.
Then when I think about what I've done I get the guilts - 'cose most of those are 'fattening'
Take care
Cathy

How does it work - I eat what i love, i try to cook what i feel - all emotions, but is that what you mean?

kenju said...

Until I was about 60, I ate only when I was hungry and I stopped as soon as the hunger was satisfied. Now, I am sad to say, my mouth is often hungry when my belly is not. And I LOVE mashed potatoes!!

Lynn said...

Usually just wanting something like Chinese food or yes, chocolate.

Granny Annie said...

Loved ALL of these comments. Who knew what food does to each one of us? I will be back to comment further in a couple of weeks and also to catch up on your posts.

Kay said...

I don't think I'm an emotional eater, but I do sometimes go on binges which I later thoroughly regret. I'm trying to lose 5 pounds right now.
