Okay guys no seriously does this happen to any one else?

I have dreams pretty often about food. And when I say they're about food, I mean literally the entire dream revolves around food like one time I was in the ocean right? And I was jumping from one giant saltine to the next,and it was crazy 'cause at the time, I was literally drowning my insides with water and living off of saltines like what.

And then I had this dream that I was being attacked by giant macaroni noodles and they were spitting cheese on me and I was getting fatter and fatter. It sounds kinda funny when I type it out, and feel free to laugh but I just want to know if this happens to any one else thanks.

The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine

Open hand or closed fist would be fine
Blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.

Her fight and fury is fiery
Oh but she loves
Like sleep to the freezing
Sweet and right and merciful
I'm all but washed
In the tide of her breathing.

-Hozier (Cherry Wine)

I used to have dreams where I would just binge and binge and wake up freaking out until I realized that it was just a dream. I have heard it said that dreams are the result of the subconscious working out problems that the conscious brain cannot. I believe that by denying your body food you become obsessed with food on a conscious and sub conscious level.

A couple times after beginning a water fast I dreamt I ate.  One dream took place in my old house, and I was eating 2 slices of Pizza Hut extra cheese pan pizza.  I woke up thinking oh no I messed up.  Back in '98 I had mono and ate next to nothing.  I had a food dream that my bed sheets had giant cookies built into them, and I was eating them.  When I had wisdom teeth out and wasn't eating solid food for a day or so I dreamt I was eating chicken nuggets at school (I was done with school for a while at the time) and woke up chewing on the gauze.  It seems restriction brings on food dreams.

I had a dream last night about food. I had a dream that I was cooking food for my family but I was going to eat it too. It was like a out of body experience. I was looking down on me cooking and trying to get myself to stop so i wont mess up all the hard work I did and not eat.

Actually just had a dream last night that i ate an entire jar of peanut butter and those little imdividual peanutbutter cup things (not reese ups). I woke up freaking out and it took me a moment to even realize that it was just a dream.

I used i have dreams ever night when i was restricting below 200 everyday with over exercising and no binging. It was awful.

I actually had a dream a couple of days ago where I was eating this salad with salmon. I even felt guilty inside the dream!

I've had a couple of dreams about ana in general...Mostly because It's not exactly a addiction, I just choose this..lol I probably don' make any sense...But I'd dream that I NEEDED to be anorexic..it was odd...

I've also dreamt a lot about zombie attacking me lately :o I think that's because I consider this situation to be eating me alive...and I have an avid fear of zombies...Jus sayin o-o

I just had a dream I was eating a slice of extra cheese pizza and the guy making it asked me how it was and I felt so guilty I didn't answer him. :( I'm glad it was just a dream. whew. Last night though I did have a dream a really thin girl with long brown hair was screaming at me like a ghost. now THAT scared me. I don't know what it means.

All the time, although none where food is the sole focus, but rather ones where amazingly delicious-looking food just happens to pop up for a really long time.

 

I had a dream last night where I was fighting off this creature that was attacking me, then afterward an aunt (that I don't have) served a huge dish of lasagna to celebrate my victory. I just remember focusing on the lasagna for sooo long, watching her cut it up and all the pasta sauce oozing out and cheese dripping everywhere.

 

Stuff like that pops up every night. It's annoying.

A few days ago, when I was fasting I kept on dreaming about eating and then getting mad at myself for breaking my fast even though when I woke up I knew I didn't eat anything. 


I'll stop when I like myself.

I have dreams where I binge on certain foods (it's always either nuts, fruits, or something with cinnamon) and then I'll wake up feeling full. It freaks me out for a short time because I fear that I actually did binge and then when I realize it was just a dream, it feels nice because I'm full without actually having eaten food.
