What are some negative thoughts caused by overeating?

Laura Katleman-Prue
Nutrition & Dietetics
When we have overindulged, the Critic (the ego's judgmental voice) berates us with harsh judgments such as:
  • You know you shouldn't have eaten that; now you'll gain weight.
  • You are such a glutton.
  • It wasn't enough to eat some of that; you had to go and eat the whole thing!
  • You're insatiable.
  • Eating like that is a sin. Repent or God will send you to hell.
  • You'll never get the body you want this way, and then you'll die fat, unhappy, and alone.
