  2. Food is a good way to overcome loneliness or a bad mood.
  3. Eating healthily means I have to give up my favourite foods entirely.
  4. I simply cannot control my weight because I love to eat.
  5. It is punishment to eat certain foods like fruits and vegetables.
  6. I’ve blown my diet once I’ve eaten something bad.
  7. I need to eat the foods that I enjoy the taste of right now.
