I love food. I'm hungry right now as I type this. I'm actually about to stop and get a snack. Which brings me to what I have to say about it: I wasn't really hungry until I started reading posts about food. A lot of it is REALLY a mental thing. I'll eat dinner before work, completely stuff myself, but when I'm bored at work (I work in the mall), or when I pass Auntie Anne's on my way in; I have to stop. When I'm depressed, I eat a lot. Am I really more hungry? No, but the act of consuming food is actually comforting. Even when I'm not hungry, if I'm in a bad state of mind, I'll eat and eat and eat. Many people think eating disorders are only about starving yourself, but binging on food is an eating disorder too, and definitely a psychological disorder as well.
