How’s everyone doing?!
Sorry I’ve been down in the dumps lately. I’ve just been going through a lot of personal things right now. I’ve always had to deal with depression, I guess the season doesn’t really help either. I kind of fell off a little but my eating habits haven’t been so great-I’m an emotional eater.
I was trying to explain this to my friend but she wasn’t quite getting it. She was saying, “Oh well I eat pretzels for salty cravings and try to eat fruit when I want something sweet…”
Yes, I know thats what you should do when you have salty/sweet cravings-there’s always a healthier option.
The thing with emotional eating is you don’t care. You don’t want any of that, you just go to whatever is comforting.
"Oh yeah I know but I’m telling you thats what I do just trying to help."
But she’s not an emotional eater so she doesn’t really know.
Its a little hard to explain but your mind just doesn’t go there, you don’t really see fruit and pretzels as “comforting” You don’t care if its healthy.
I know she was trying to be a good friend and help but she just wasn’t understand what I was saying. I’m not dumb, I know to eat fruit as a healthier option for sweet and lets say pretzels or even edamame for salty cravings but like I’m trying to make a point you just want to grab whatever.
