Sabotaging Thought: I’m so upset, I need to eat to make myself feel better.
Response: Negative emotions ALWAYS pass and if I was feeling upset and had absolutely no access to food, eventually I would feel better no matter what. So it’s not true that I need to eat right now. Besides, eating ultimately won’t make me feel better anyway because I’ll feel guilty about it, I’ll reinforce bad habits, I’ll jeopardize my weight loss, etc.
