Back to our original question, Why do we comfort eat and overeat? Answers include to feel safe and to feel full. Have you noticed that when we comfort eat or overeat we tend to go for sweet tasting or bulky foods why? The answer is because we desperately want to feel full,, we eat sweet things because we either are not attracting, creating, or accepting enough sweet things into our lives.

When we comfort eat or overeat we are literally emotionally starving, or suppressing our own expression of ourselves in someway, usually because we are afraid of being judged or not loved.

Open your mouth wide, breathe those good feelings all through your body, like there is a never ending source of them, fill yourself up with them, this is like having a wonderful fantastic meal except that you are breathing sustenance vs. eating it and its not fattening and guess what way more fulfilling.
