Anxiety around food

LazySusan11 · 13/01/2016 16:23

I need to lose weight I find it very difficult and have tried dieting and not dieting mindful eating etc. However now I've admitted to myself that once again I need to drop the excess I feel anxious about food.

What I can/should it vs feeling deprived. I don't have a very unhealthy diet in the main I don't eat processed foods except for chocolate which is my problem I think. The thought of having to give up my favourite chocolate makes me feel anxious. I'm guessing a sugar addiction really has a hold of me.

I could just have a bit of chocolate once a week but that doesn't work because I can't just stick to one day or a small bar.

Has anyone else experienced this and does anyone know how to break the cycle?
