The amount of times I hear "why are you on a diet?" "You don't need to lose weight" It's not a diet and it's not for weight loss. I choose to eat healthy and nourish my body accordingly. What you do is your business.
A good reminder that food is fuel for the body, not a "fix" for feelings. HALT originally was developed to help identify red flags for alcoholism, so understanding and managing these feelings work for any addiction.
