Sabotaging Thought: “It’s okay to eat whatever I want because I’m sick.”

Response: My body doesn’t know or care that I’m sick, it will process all calories the same. There are comfort foods that I can eat when I’m not feeling well that are healthy, like soup. Besides, if I eat unhealthy foods to feel better when I’m sick, when I’m healthy again I won’t feel good because I’ll feel badly about having gone off my diet and gaining weight.
