Sally Roberts

This is a very difficult area - and particularly so for someone who has ever suffered from anorexia and/or bulimia! Sometimes it is obvious when the next bite is going to be from greed - but sometimes the "shoulds" kick in - you start to think "should" I have stopped being hungry by now...will the next bite be greed?... when in fact you know you are still hungry! I suppose the thing is to tune in even more to how your body is feeling - maybe even experiment with pushing the boundaries too far at one meal so you can see what it is like to have been greedy and be feeling a bit sick as a result?

Andrea Wren

That's a really good point Sally, especially in regard to eating disorders. You highlight the other side of the coin with this - when you know you should eat more and don't do it out of fear.

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
