Over the years, I've learned to listen to my body as to what it wants, and because of that my diet has evolved over time.
Every time I start preparing food, I ask myself, "Is this food to feed me and heal my body or is this just to comfort me and fill some kind of emotional emptiness inside?"
Comfort food isn't necessarily bad, but eating when you're not hungry and are just comforting yourself forces your body to deal with something it doesn't need. That puts a strain on your bodily systems.
I suggest if you're hungry, before you go straight to your comfort food, why not ask your body, "Is this what I really need?" You might get a different answer than what you expect. t
