But there's no consolation to be had from chocolate in the mouth or foie on the fork or champagne in the glass. They weren't the problem, they're not the solution.
In strong contrast to some other advice posted, I say don't explore the notion any more and keep to your healthy orientation.
The comfort I got from comfort food lasts no more than a half hour after completion, sometimes much less. The calories remain until burned off (which if you believe in Last in, Last out, will be 10 years from now).
Save the calories for more celebratory experiences.
Of course, there are many others, less compulsive than I, who can use chocolate, cheese, etc. without health implications. So maybe I'm just talking to myself here.
