Do you eat for hunger or for comfort?

Postby Shazzam » Sun Apr 24, 2005 9:10 am

Do you eat because you are hungry? Or do you eat because you need comfort (depressed, angry, sad, bored, tired etc).

Yes or No.

I have heard that people eat sweet stuff when they're depressing. I wonder if it's true or not. :?

I spend alot of time around young teens and I have noticed that they do most of their (serious) eating in front of the television. They aren't concentrating on what or how much they are eating they are just eating!

:? :idea:

For hunger, rarely for pleasure.

You must eat sometimes for pleasure. What about your favorite fruit; or a piece of chocolate or an icecream? :shock:

eating itself is pleasurable that it doesn't really mean to me whether I eat because I'm really hungry or because I just want to have a snack... both ways eating is good. unless of cours you eat too much. I think no one sane would like to look like a pear...

I did not say "never".

And eating healthy for hunger is not uncompatible with eating with pleasure (and not with eating ecologically).

I think most people feel really happy when they eat something they like. If you didn't you would never eat at all. Nothing wrong with enjoying your food I reckon. You are right as long as you don't over do it you can pretty much eat what you want; when you want. :)

I think alot of people eat junk when they are stressed; because it is easy to access. Imagine if apples and oranges were available from vending machines instead of mars bars and candy people. :idea:

I can live without smoking and without a tv. But that's about it. Other stuff on your list is necessary to survive!
