If you watch television commercials about weight loss, you'll notice that they all state that their product will fill you up or they assure you that you won't feel hungry. I've always thought this a bit silly, almost all of the people I know overeat because they use food as a comfort. Hence the term comfort food. Whether you are feeling sad, tired, frustrated, or celebrating something good, food is always there. It's not about filling the stomach, it's about filling a need.

Of course there are several problems with using food as a comfort. The biggest issue being that stuffing our faces with junk doesn't actually make us feel any better. It distracts us initially but afterwards we are left bloated and frustrated.

Skinny Thinking realizes that food isn't the problem. It's our relationship with food. We romanticize about food and use it as a means to solve problems. Recognizing this fact is first step. Doing something about it can change everything. It's definitely not an overnight miracle cure but gradual progress over time is far more likely to lead to permanent changes.
