What sends you right to food? Is it hunger? Really? Is it a craving? Is it the time of day whether you’re hungry or not? Is it a mood? Or is it a mystery?
Yes, there’s a lot that will send you right to food. For now, though, let’s concentrate on “it’s a mystery.”
Usually people don’t ask what sent them right to food. But if you are trying to lose weight, you probably stop and think why you just did what you shouldn’t have done? As it so often happens, though, you will find yourself in the dark about why you gobbled down something you shouldn’t have? The usual result is that you come up with some ideas but are not at all sure that any of your ideas is right. And so what caused you to go against your weight loss plan remains a mystery.
To solve such a mystery what do you have to do? Should you give yourself the third degree? Sweat it out of you? Or can you go on a stake out and set up surveillance? It’s definitely best with any of these methods to know what you’re looking for. When something is a mystery, it most likely means that something is hidden and you have to find what’s hidden.
Food makes you feel better. So what’s hidden obviously is something that is disturbing you. Could you find out what this mysterious disturbance is? What if you didn’t commit the crime of going right to food. That’s right. Hold up on going right to food, despite the fact that the pull to food is hard to resist. Taking food out of the mix like this should leave you feeling disturbed, disturbed that you can’t have your food, but also disturbed by that mysterious something or other, which you want to identify.
Once you solve the mystery of what’s disturbing you, you can do what any good detective would do in the situation. You can arrest the guilty culprit and lock it away so it can’t do its dirty work.
