Hi, I have a bit of a problem, I wonder if I'm the only one and what I can do to overcome this?
If I were to show you a pie chart of my emotions on a daily basis it would probably look like this: Nothing 80%, Happiness 10%, Anger 5%, other 5%. Now, the nothing is not really a concern. I don't overeat or undereat at nothing. I eat because it's logical to eat when I'm hungry and unnecessary to eat when I'm not. It's the other 20%. When I'm happy I over eat and REALLY over eat. I can easily consume 5 lobsters and be ready to eat more after an hour (not exagerating). When I'm angry or other, I can't physically bring myself to eat. Luckily the distribution of my emotions are the way they are, but when something upsets that balance and I'm more happy or angry or other, I don't know what to do. Now, I like happiness, it's a fun feeling but I put on weight when I'm happy and this is just wrong. How can I achieve more happiness without achieving more fat? Why do I seem physically incapable of eating when I'm sad, as in, food actually smells revolting and the thought of the texture and taste in my mouth makes me gag? Is this normal?
