When I recently asked members of my Weight Loss for Foodies group what they considered their biggest challenge to permanently losing weight, most of them said that they eat for comfort.

Think about the term “comfort eating.” Because it really is a misnomer.

We all know what it means. You may have visions of bowls of gooey mac and cheese or pizza, or a pile of french fries or a dish of warm apple pie with ice cream. Mashed potatoes. Spaghetti and meatballs. A bowl of chicken soup with matzoh balls.

We love foods that we think of as comfort foods.

But when does comfort food actually make us uncomfortable?

I’m talking about eating for comfort when you aren’t hungry. Eating comfort food when you are hungry is fine.

Think about how eating to comfort yourself backfires. You’re in pain, and food is your painkiller. Maybe it’s been your painkiller for most of your life. But llook at how by taking away one discomfort, you’re creating a lot more discomfort.

Listen to learn the array of problems that comfort eating causes to create more discomfort for you and what you can do instead.
