When faced with hunger, and food I call bad, I often repeat mantras to myself over and over in my head.
Some of these mantras are abusive, and I call myself fat, stupid, ugly, useless, etc.
Other mantras involve thought patterns more along the lines of ‘I don’t need food’ and ‘a moment on the lips, forever on the hips’ and ‘bones are beautiful’ and ‘it’s all worth it’ and ‘beauty hurts’.
Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn’t. It depends.
