First, I have to highlight that after losing almost 100lbs, 14 years ago, I still struggle with the desire to run to food for comfort. Sadly, that battle hasn't gone away. And while it's managed well, when really intense events like this come up, I feel strong urges to turn to food for healing. Copious amounts of food.
One thing that is undeniable during this lockdown is how much we are eating. There is even a cute new term for how “fluffy” many of us are getting amidst the Netflix binging … and other types of binging, they call it “Pandemic Pounds”.
