Wednesday - 04/14/2021 — I talked a while back about how comforting it is now to have gained the weight that I’d lost when, back in 2012 and ’13 and ’14, I was so ill for so long.
I haven’t been doing emotional overeating over the years since then. I simply regained my healthy appetite. But I had to laugh when I discovered this word for the over-consumption of comfort food.
A lot of folks are dealing with this phenomenon now as they use food to cushion them from the “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.” So, what can we substitute instead of binge-eating? How about binge-reading? Binge-knitting? Binge-walking?
A friend of mine has been binging on Ally McBeal.
Chacun à son goût.
