Comfort food doesn't have to be bad for you. But you do have to exercise it off.

Go overboard with the ice cream? Go overboard at the gym.

More like people mislabeling comfort food with "my favorite food I eat 3x portions of all the time".

When a comfort food begins to get eaten on a regular basis, it's no longer a comfort food, it's standard fare.

Is it really good for mental health in the long term? Doesn't it just lead to more thoughts of "God I am a worthless fatass piece of" ::wheeze:: "shiat!"

Line a pan with a layer of frozen tater tots. Cook as per directions. When you have 8 minutes left add 3 or 4 diced hot dogs to the pan. When done put a layer of tots and dogs in bowl, add salt, ketchup, and mustard. Repeat until bowl is full or pan empty. Eat.

A truly great comfort food.

I was really feeling down one day. I made myself a square, half pound burger with two grilled cheese sandwiches as a roll. Each grilled cheese sandwich contained two slices of cheddar and three slices of slab (very thick) bacon. Suddenly all my problems seemed to drift away an the back of a rainbow shiatting unicorn.

For the record, I'm just short of 6'4", about 205lbs and normally don't eat like this. It's also probably not much worse than a fast food lunch.

/Wife saw it and immediately wanted one. I had picked up a pound of sirloin figuring she'd want a burger so I avoided having to share.
//Lasted her three meals
///Bacon is home cured by a friends dad. I keep helping them with computer stuff and keep getting some of the best bacon/loin/chops on planet earth.

My comfort food is curry. After my first real heartbreak, it was all I could eat when I couldn't eat anything else.

/To make me feel better, my mom bought me 5 flavors of ice cream.
// I ate none of it.

Really? You are putting Subway in the same category as McDonalds? Also, you have the "training" completely backwards. We are biologically inclined to eat a high-fat, high-protein diet. Only after prolonged exposure to what you'd categorize as healthy food do people develop a preference for it.

I've always thought of comfort food as starchy and fatty (eg mac n cheese, mashed potatoes w/ gravy, fried chicken, pizza w/ extra cheese, etc). I think it's "comforting" because it's a big relief for your body to go from low sugar levels and burning fat to burning no fat and having readily available sugars.

My mother makes a macaroni and cheese casserole with cream of mushroom soup, pimentos, and a dash of mustard. I think that's all.
Either way, no matter how hard I tried, it was just never as good.

Oh, and an artichoke heart salad with rice, artichoke hearts, capers, tomatoes, and scallions.
Sauce was made of heated butter, mayo, and lemon juice.
Absolute heaven. Especially with a steak.

Nothing is wrong with hot dogs and tater tots, at all. A coney and tots is a favorite at Sonic.
It's just that when one mixes the two....it just seems yucky. I could very well be wrong, mind you.

Comfort food doesn't have to be unhealthy. You just need to be a decent cook and most everything will taste great.

That sounds disgusting. Fry the tater tots at least. And throw some chili, cheese and hot sauce on those hot dogs.
