What are your reasons for using food as a coping mechanism?
Part of me wants to keep eating the way I do because...

 food is my best friend and I don't think I can give up eating the way I do.

 when life gets too stressful food provides a quick fix.

 my life would be too intense without eating what I want.

 I just love junk food and the feeling it gives me.

 eating less would make me feel too deprived.

 since I can't be perfect it feels like there's no point to dieting.

 it feels like I need the reward of food to be happy.

 food feels like my protection.

 I don't want anybody or anything to stop me from eating what I want.

 I have too many frustrations and food lets me feel in control.
