Fulfillment from a higher source than food

A friend of mine once told me about a time when she had loaded up her plate at a Thanksgiving feast and sat down to eat. But then she noticed a friend's plate had spaces where the plate was showing. She said that experience had taught her something about moderation.

I thought about this conversation several years ago, when I was distressed about various things in my life. In order to soothe the pain, I would eat. Candy bars, in particular, gave me a boost and helped fill the emptiness I felt—temporarily, at least. Just about every day, I'd go to the local convenience store just to buy candy bars, and would eat two or three at a time.
