    That I was eating lots and lots of chocolate!

    I couldn't stop and I was becoming fatter and fatter and fatter, it's the strangest nightmare I have ever had, I wouldn't even have considered it a nightmare had I not awoken with a panicking feeling afterwards.

    Do any of you guys have body image worries/paranoia when following a strict diet?

    In the dream the chocolate was SOOOOO sweet and good, I miss gorging on as much as I want.

    Seriously?

    I've had nightmares where I'm being murdered.

    And you dream of chocolate and call it a nightmare. You can always lose the weight afterwards. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Oh God that sounds horrible. I have had dreams like that where it's like im still as fat as I used to be. It's like having PTSD. It's traumatic. Sometimes I dream of buffets and sometimes I dream that people keep making fun of me because im fat

    That's when I tend to go without eating for a while.

    That makes sense if you're on a diet. It's a sign of addiction. You would likely have stressful smoking dreams if you were quitting smoking. Being on a diet or fasting can feel like trying to quit a drug.

    No, the only nightmares I really have anymore are those where you go to school and remember you haven't read any text or done any of your assignments and it's the end of the semester.

    I had a nightmare where I was sleeping with a female prostitue... does that make me a straight sex addict? icon_smile.gif

    you are entirely missing the point,I was dreaming of a means to an end, the end being becoming a big lardo, I wasn't dreaming of an objective fear or unpleasentness.

    I used to have this sort of nightmare frequently. In it I remembered late in the semester a class I had signed up for and never attended. It's been awhile since I had that nightmare. I'll probably have it again now.

    (EDIT: I have never dreamed that I was sabotaging my fitness goals. Maybe I should take them more seriously.)

    I have the actor's nightmare at least once or twice a week. A fast costume change with a quick entrance cue; not being able to find the right (black!) pants (and socks!) then ready to go on but not knowing what I am supposed to say or what show we are doing. icon_mad.gif

    I actually try and stuff my face with all cookies, pop, cakes, pies, icecream etc.

    For some reason my bodyfat level just doesn't increase much. Although I've always gained muscle really really easily.

    Then again you're talking to someone that started to bodybuild after being nearly hospitalized over annorexia. icon_lol.gif

    Whenever I try dieting I ALWAYS have dreams of eating the foods I cant have. That's actually why I've stopped dieting haha. I figure if my body is going to those lengths to indulge itself, its not worth it lol.

    It was pretty freaky when I could feel the knife as it was slitting through my throat in one of those (nightmare?) I had.

    This thread made me realize that I NEVER have dreams about food or eating, nor drinking, either, by me or anyone else. Is that considered unusual?

    I rarely have real nightmares, though sometimes the dream isn't developing the way I'd like. So I just rewind it to the point where it started going badly, then let it run forward with the improved storyline.

    I have lucid dreaming, I often become self aware, but I always ruin the dreams storyline because I forget where it was going and it doesn't take it's natural course.

    It's like all the actors stop and look at me to add a road or a new villain to the plot but I just can't conjure it, I should start a new thread about lucid dreaming, see if anyone else knows how to control their dreams.

    I had that dream last night that my two upper front teeth started migrating and then they fell off. It was scared and woke up immediately.

    I don't have nightmares about getting fat because I DO get fat - it's inevitable less due to a lack of discipline and more to health issues, medications and injuries. Plus once medically cleared to train and diet the weight comes off at three times the speed it took to put on and I hit new personal bests. For example, I recently gained 35 lbs over several months of forced inactivity, began training exactly one month ago and lost 12 lbs. I'll hit goal weight in another two months with no worries - except how the skin on my midsection and jowls are gonna look this go-round. I mean, I'm over 50 - it's been a great ride but it's not gonna last much longer. That's legit body image worry and paranoia.

    As for disturbing nightmares, I journaled one starring myself and "RJ Royalty" Art Deco, CuriousJockAZ and Ariodante/Matiz, a twisted, perverse tale of autoerotic asphyxiation and cosmetic surgery. If you want to read how that went down you can find that documented dream, titled "The Boys Next Door," here: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/3567731

    I never have dreams about food. Most of my dreams are fairly benign, but there is the occasional nightmare, like of a shark nibbling away at me while I'm underwater after a surfing wipeout, or being gunned down with heavy machine guns when I can't even see where the fire is coming from. Fortunately, no worries about getting fat and accumulating blubber for the sharks.
