I Am Addicted to Food

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,021 People

    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 Don't Have Just One Weakness

    There is nothing is particular I'm addicted to. I don't have constant cravings for sweets, I never eat fast food, and I don't even like chips or other unhealthy snacks that much. But I love to eat. It hardly matters what it is--I am a hardcore fridge-raider extraordinaire. I...

    It's so unhealthy, and I know it.

    I see myself getting fatter and fatter, but I can't stop myself from eating the foods I love. Clothes don't fit me right, and I know I'm the "fat girl" in all of my classes at school. I want to lose weight, I want to be healthy, I just don't know where to start and I'm scared of...

    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...

    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...

    Food, My Weight And Working Out Are All I Think About.

    I've gone up and down with my weight my whole life. Being extremely overweight twice now by the age of 26 is terriable! I eat the most when I'm alone when no one can watch me stuff myself. I think about food every waking moment! Anything that is bad for me I want it. It's easiest...

    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.

    I just cant stop eating.

    And i cant eat healthy anymore. Upon moving to my dads, junk food now surrounds me. And once i start eating, my appetite only grows. Im obsessed with that delicious, sugary, flavor. I just keep eating and eating.

    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.
