Hidden in Plain Sight: Food Addiction Reset - Issue 55

 

Boredom 

The fourth greatest cause of relapse listed was Boredom. I have had my suspicions about boredom. People do report that they ate because they were bored. But let’s think about this for a minute.

There’s really never any reason to be bored.

But processed foods take away our ability to do many things. Maybe we're too tired. Perhaps we are to brain fog.

I think it’s the combination of tired, depressed, and brain fog in combination with cravings that creates the sensation of being bored. If we weren't brained fog, and tired, we would surely get up and do something fun. But the inability to be creative with our time in combination with cravings results and eating.
