Dear Feeling Guilty
Seeing that you are not overweight and have managed to maintain a low weight for 21 years, these feelings of guilt associated with food and eating have a psychological basis and require a psychological cure. Please ask your gp to refer you to a clinical psychologist so that you can explore why you associate eating with guilt and also learn how to eliminate these feelings which could even lead to an eating disorder.
I hope you will go for help, because you cannot go on feeling depressed every time you eat something you think is 'wrong'.
