We've all done it. Mindlessly wolfed down a triple by-pass burger and chips in front of the computer as we try to meet a work deadline. Or polished off a tub of cookie dough ice cream after hearing bad news. Finding comfort in food is very human. And the trouble is, the more indulgently sweet, salty or fatty it is, the more rewarding we find it - and the more we crave it.
Our society has an obsession over how we look and that obsession can be linked directly to what's on our plate. Our desire to be thin outweighs our desire to just be healthy. It takes away our perspective and sense of balance and as such food is seen as an emotional crutch instead of simply a source of fuel.
The fear that someone will laugh at you in the gym may sound trivial, but it's a huge part of why people, especially women, are scared of working out. So when I heard that some utter bozo had filmed a woman exercising in the gym on Snapchat and titled it 'Tf is she doing', I wanted to ask him Tf he thought he was doing.
