So, my friend and I were talking today and she brought up a great point to me: she mentioned that when she eats like garbage, she feels like garbage. I must say that I have noticed the difference. Especially since I have been bouncing back and forth between eating healthy and not. The days that I eat zero carbs, drink tons of water, have zero-to-low sodium intake I feel great! On the days that I eat Checkers insert Homer drool I feel gross. I also feel…greasy. My tongue also feels raw and super dry. But I still love that damn taste.
Let me describe it to you. Now, I’ve never actually done the drug, but I’m pretty confident that I can describe it to an addicts first hit of heroine. There’s nothing like it. The way the flavors just dance across my taste buds. The crunch of the crisp fried food. There’s nothing like that very first one. And then you get it again and it’s just not the same. It’s still good, but something’s just not right…so, you think, “maybe I’ll try it again.” And that’s when the addiction cycle happens. And man is it a bitch to break.
I’m sure you’re thinking to yourself, “it can’t be that hard to break, witchin’, it’s just food.” That’s exactly it. Think of other addictions like smoking, drinking, or other drugs. A person can take themselves to rehabilitation, remove themselves from what they’re addicted. But, food…we all need food to survive. Those of us who are addicted to food simply cannot walk away from food or remove ourselves from food when it’s around. We would literally die!
At this point…it’s easier to quit smoking and I haven’t even successfully stayed quit at that. The helpless and depressed feelings are so difficult to fight off. I know I’m not alone, but I definitely feel it.
Oh, what to do.
