OK, I KNOW this sounds gross to some of you, but the point here is it was my therapy for the moment. The one thing that felt great, tasted great & was total comfort. Of course, I only did this bc I was hungry, in mental agony & totally alone.
I pigged out for a few minutes & felt better. I reminded myself of the girl in her lingerie on a Friday night, scarfing down icecream (with a fork) straight out of the tub, after breaking up with her boyfriend & regretting it.

C'mon girls & well, guys too. What are your total therapy/comfort foods that you'd rather not admit?
Enormous amounts of chips and dip. I usually will down a half bag of chips with a whole thing of dip in one sitting.
And no, I'm not overweight!

Okay, I'll confess: those horrid little cans of Libby's potted meat! I snarf a few saltine crackers spread with the goop behind my family's back.

-A casserole dish filled with sliced potatoes and a homemade cheese sauce (any kind of cheese will do, any). I will have the entire dish polished off within 8 hours. This is my favorite fall/winter comfort meal.

-An entire loaf of fresh bread with lots of cold, salty butter.

-Fresh dumplings, spaetzle, or wide egg noodles-again, with lots of butter. Sometimes fresh parmesan cheese also.

(I usually have to up my cardio routine come winter!)

I mix up a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough, and eat quite a bit of it raw while I bake the cookies. Sometimes I have even mixed up the dough and ate so much of it raw that I lost interest in baking the cookies. Then I wrap the remaining dough up and put it in the refrigeratorfor another day.

I'm with you on this one and I'm not overweight either - but if I have a carton of Philly' chive n' cheese dip and I'm anywhere in the vicinity of a bag of Lays plain chips ....before I know it, half the bag is empty and most of the dip is gone. There's something about those smooth yellow chips, they were made to be crunched down loaded with some kind of dip!

I am, so I can't even keep chips OR dip in my house.
Remember the old commercials? "No one can eat just one."? Yup. that's me. Can NOT resist chips.

Shhhhhh....I almost forgot about those - I eat those tamales out of a can when my family is out of the house on the weekend. I don't think they have any idea I eat that stuff.

OP, I think potato chips and mayo sounds good.
Anything involving potato chips is my guilty pleasure. I love a tub of dip too...doesn't really matter what kind.
I like yellow cheese, Miracle Whip and Wonderbread sandwiches too.

I must have no shame. I don't have any "when no one is around" treats. I eat my disgusting concoctions or gross amounts of food in front of anyone who's around.
