Is there really a mouse?

Staring at the fridge shouldn't be my hobby...

I am lonely and busy-but-not-busy-enough such that basically, food has become a hobby of mine. This is bad because it makes me have semi-disordered eating habits. I need to keep myself busy enough or modify my behavior somehow so that I don't have all this extra energy to spend on thinking about food. [more inside]

Terrible food phobia. Please help.

I have a terrible phobia of tuna fish, particularly when it's covered in lots of mayo. Just being around someone eating it makes me gag and want to vomit. I work at a small company where we all eat lunch together. If I see someone is eating tuna I have to make an excuse to leave the room. My coworkers are becoming suspicious. My question is how do I deal with this? It's seems ridiculous that I feel almost embarrassed to talk about it and have trouble just saying the words "tuna" let alone talking about with a counselor. Yet I feel so overwhelmed sometimes, I feel like something is wrong with me. Is there a way to overcome this obstacle on my own? I'm an otherwise healthy and mentally stable person in a long term relationship.

3 stacked dice = One serving of cheese

Like many modern US Americans, I've come to realize that I have a VERY inflated idea about what a "normal" portion size is. I need to get my head right, so that this is normal, not this.

Eating disorder recovery

Around 2 weeks ago I decided to actually properly recover from my eating disorder. And I am hoping that some people here with relevant medical knowledge or personal experience might be able to give me some advice on how to proceed and information on what I can physically expect, as the information given online is often very contradictory. I live in a rural area (UK) and have had very negative experiences with the local medical professionals/counselling services (I also get the impression that most GPs will not be very well informed anyway) so I am attempting to do this very much on my own.

Food suggestions for a sore throat

Okay, this is a bad time to be without money and there's nothing I can really do to change that immediately. I am on assistance. I have food stamps that can buy only food stuff. Because of last minute car repairs and things like extra gas for appointments that I couldn't miss with government agencies, I have zero on the cash assistance (non-food side of food stamps). I slowly developed a cold today. It's just a cold. Sore throat, coughing, running nose and headache. I have Tylenol for the headache, but my throat is killing me and coughing keeps adding to the burn. There's no money for non-food cough/throat stuff. No cough drops or meds. What can I buy that is a food item that can make my throat feel less like it's been scraped with a brillo pad with each cough. [more inside]

Looking for stories on leaving vegetarianism

I'm considering eating meat again after more than a decade of being a vegetarian. I'm looking for blogs or long articles about going back to meat after a significant period without it. I'm looking for people talking about why the change happened and how they re-acclimated themselves to meat. I would also welcome articles about people who struggled with it but stayed vegetarians anyway. [more inside]

Helping people with 'a problematic relationship with food''

My best friend and his girlfriend both seem to have a rather unhealthy relationship with food. This isn't currently at a critical level for either of them, but I think in the past it has been, and I'm worried that it could get like that again. I'm particularly concerned that they rely on each other quite heavily for emotional support and that in this area they may not be best placed to help each other. Am I right to gently suggest to each of them that they seek proper help for this? What resources could I refer them to, or how could I suggest they might best go about getting the support they need? We're in the UK. [more inside]
