    Food 101

    I have realized that I am a food addict. At first I thought I just liked to eat but now I know that it is an addiction. If there is food in front of me I will eat it. I love to stuff myself immensely then let the button loose on my jeans for all of my fat to hang out. I think...

    My parents know how to cook

    and they're both really good with it. They passed it on to my older sister who knows how to bake now :) I was taught by them when I was eight so I know the basics, but I refuse to bake anything.

    Food is all I think about.

    I feel like food is the only thing that makes me happy / the only thing I look forward to. I also 99% of the time overeat at every meal. If I'm not feeling stuffed / or almost sick I don't seem to be satisfied. I get these cravings for certain foods mostly salty I'll eat a whole...

    I Can't Stop Eating

    I don't think i really have a "problem" yet. I'm at the point where i can say "well this is my 4th meal of the day, i should probably stop." But the thing is, eating is my favorite thing to do. When i am out with friends and someone mentions they are hungry, i...

    Whenever I go on diets all I think about all

    day is food. If I'm not dieting and eating whatever I want in fine, but when I start to restrict is when I can't stop thinking about my next meal.

    I constantly look at buzzfeed,

    thrillist, huffington post, and any other food news source. It's impossible for me to stop and I do it compulsively. As I eat, I think about my next meal and obsess over food. I am not fat, but I am trying to loose weight. Food is just too good and is constantly on my mind!

    I'm addicted to food.

    On a completely serious note. It's a legit addiction, and I struggle with it. I eat even if I'm not hungry, just because it's there.

    Hopeless Food Addict: When I grew up I just

    ate to much. That was all. When I was overweight as a little girl my mother would strongly urge me to loose weight. That saddened me and I ate to compensate. Then puberty and more eating. By the time I hit college I was over three hundred pounds. I gained over 180lbs in college...

    I Am Addicted To Fast Food.

    I go to great lengths to get fast food when no one can catch me. I will buy with cash so my husband can't track it on my card, I do it when he is at work, or in the middle of the night. I make sure the bags are in the trash before he has a chance to see them. I don't know how to...

    All Day, Every Day

    I love food so much, that for one weekend my parents were away, I did nothing but eat and watch tv all weekend. Pizza, chips candy, it was soooo good. I don't mind that I am fat, but this is certainly a part of that.
