You bet! Once I make a bracha, eating is a religous experience for me!November 2, 2010 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #706326popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Eating is emotional experience. We “love” food. We “hate” food. Food makes us happy. We get angry at food. We are jealous of our food. We get insulted by our food.November 2, 2010 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #706327shimmelMember

Can I make a serious suggestion, Shimmel? Try eating thing that you made from scrath (as opposed to store-bought stuff).

It depends with me. I can go a whole week without eating and then I can binge for a day and then resume not eating….
I’m not on a diet, its just that sometimes I’m in the mood of food and sometimes I’m totally not.November 2, 2010 7:40 pm at 7:40 pm #706331blinkyParticipant
yeah my food is so attached to me that it actually sticks to me sometimes- literally:)November 2, 2010 7:43 pm at 7:43 pm #706332shimmelMember
Food just loses its appeal in those times..NO matter if its “heimish” or store bought. …If i do manage to push in, it comes right out….November 2, 2010 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #706333cokeMember
Sac- I always thought that I was the only one like that! Thanks for making me feel normal again!November 2, 2010 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #706334
Im sure you go a whole week not eating.November 2, 2010 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #706335
Most Jews love food its just how it is in our religion.November 2, 2010 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #706336
I didnt say I dont put a morsel in my mouth. But, I skip breakfast and lunch and pick at supper… have a drink or two throughout the day.November 2, 2010 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #706337dunnoMember
I thought we agreed to no more food threads 😉November 2, 2010 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #706338SJSinNYCMember
Well, most holidays revolve around the theme of “they tried to kill us, we won, lets eat!”November 2, 2010 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #706339
Ok but it sounds like you are trying to starve yourself if its to lose weight get on a normal diet. You can really screw up your metabolism with starvation. Starving yourself is unhealthy. Even if you arent a big eater you should still have some food at least 2x a day. Maybe try fruit for breakfast. Its what I do.November 2, 2010 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #706340cb1Member

Yes definitely. You get to sit up front next to the Rebbe.November 2, 2010 10:57 pm at 10:57 pm #706342
I’m not trying to do anything, I just have strange eating habits.
Whos good for slurrpies tonight @ 12?!November 3, 2010 12:43 am at 12:43 am #706343Sister BearMember
Count me in, Sac!! I’m literally addicted to slurpies!!!!!!November 3, 2010 12:43 am at 12:43 am #706344

Love food. Sadly, food doesn’t love me back…November 3, 2010 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #706349
Funny you should mention slurpees, becuase every now and then, I pass the ice cream store on 13th / 45th and wonder to myself, “who in the world has a slurpee emergency and 10:00pm?”
Now I know.
p.s. – tilt the odds in your favor, skip the slurp, and go for cholent tom @ 12. If ever there was a daters shmorgasboard, that is THE place. And if you’re lucky, you’ll spot Lipa and / or Berry after work. If the mood / chevrah is right, they might even conveine an impromptu kumzitz!November 3, 2010 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm #706350
I dont remember the last time I’ve been in Boro Park…
I’ll pass on the cholent.November 3, 2010 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #706351SJSinNYCMember
Did Sac go to the right seminary?
I’m addicted to slurpees. They get me through my pregnancies.November 3, 2010 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #706352
“I dont remember the last time I’ve been in Boro Park”
Then without a doubt, you are (over)due for a visit.
Thursday nite would be ideal; you can shop at Kollel and then right around the corner is VIP.
I mean, you’re already parked in the area. Why let an opportunity go to waste?November 3, 2010 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #706353

….for now.November 3, 2010 5:34 pm at 5:34 pm #706354
Can’t say I blame you. Every time I cross OP, I feel like I’m visiting a foreign country.. or NNJ.
A few weeks ago, I was caught in Flatbush and needed to find a minyan for mincha at aroud 6:15 (and was several blocks from Landaus). I see a stream of people come out of a shul, and ask,”when’s the next minyan” and I’m told, “9:00”
Without thinking, I said, mincha? And he said, You’re looking for a minyan mincha now? At 6:15? Its past shkiya! We just fininshed maariv! (apparently, they daven mincha and maariv back-to-back).
So off to Landaus I went.
But boy, did it feel warm and fuzzy once I got back arcoss Ditmas!November 3, 2010 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #706355
When and where are these impromptu cholent Kumzitzes taking place?November 3, 2010 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #706356crdleMember
BP Totty- are u chasidish? y the hate towards flatbush? U have minyanim here all the time nice try. Sac- u live in flatbush? u should come over to my house, we always have girls over , parties and stuff, i wanna see who u are:)))))November 3, 2010 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #706357theprof1Participant
Oh my how can one hate Flatbush? Flatbush is where all the yidden say Gut Shabbos to each other. I live in Midwood and daven in Boro Park. On Ave I and E 3 i say gut shabbos and the guy smiles back and says gut shabbos. 3 more blocks and I’m on 50 and 19 and I say gut shabbos and the guy looks at me like I’m nuts.
Sac, no chulent, oh my, apikorsis mamish. Eating chulent from Thursday after maariv which is already leil shishi until the shabbos meal is a spiritual experience. You might think its pure gashmiyus but its not. Every food has holy sparks of kedusha along with the gashmiyus of the food. Eating chulent, kishka, and kugel while uplifting these sparks of kedusha is an extremely satisfying holy spiritual experience. Add to this the intrinsic kedusha of shabbos and the neshomo yeseiro and we are talking really strong spiritual ecstasy. Top it all off with a bottle of Guinness stout and you’re on cloud 9 mamish.November 3, 2010 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #706358theprof1Participant
BP Totty, yeah, Midwood is strange. They observe irrelevant Shulchan Orech halochos like davening mincha before the shekiya, laining krias shema on time, stuff like that. My wife told me a story from her apikores Hebrew high school teacher. Moshiach came and all the modern people who always do things on time came running. As Moshiach marched along with his new army of kipot serugot, the chasidim came running. Moshiach asked, so who are they. The YI rabbi answered, heim gam kein yehudim.November 3, 2010 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #706359
I’m running.November 3, 2010 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #706360
The hate towards flatbush? Nothing of the sort. I just can’t figure out their pre-occupation with clock-watching. That, and the fact that they post zmanim to the minute (example: maariv is 7:28)
I get a real kick out of telling OOT (or Flatbush) visitors to our shul when they ask “what time is maariv” (becuase its not printed on the scedule)and I tell them, “its right after bentching”
“But what TIME is it??” They insist on knowing. The idea of being in limbo drives them wild. As does their obsession with clock-watching.
And as far as “minyanim all the time” besides Landaus, or the occational shteeble, try to find a minyan mincha outside of shkiya time. And you need to allow 10 minutes to get there. In BP, in a 10 minute radius, you can probably find 50 places.
There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home….November 3, 2010 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #706361
Any of the cholent places are possible venues, but if you’re over 23, you’re gonna feel very out of place. (That’s why I’m boxed out).November 3, 2010 11:39 pm at 11:39 pm #706362oomisParticipant
I am VERY emotional when I eat. I cry if there is no chocolate.
