Not in the least bit.  In fact, the holidaysare so filled with food that it's overwhelming for me and I end up eating very little because it's just too much!!  Also, I'm the one in the restaurant that hold the whole table up from ordering for 20 minutes because I just can't figure out what to have.  It's always ends with DH ordering me something he doesn't mind eating and then  proceeds to eat half of mine and his own anyway!  LOL

Not addicted. Unlike a lot of people when I'm stressed/drepressed I lose my appetite.

I don't think so, but I think there were times in the past I definitely showed addictive behavior toward it. As in, I would have a bad chocolate craving, and would get so ill if it didn't get fulfilled, or I would want to go out to eat and it was the same thing. I remember thinking I was getting too "obsessed" with wanting food too much because I would get upset if I didn't get my way.

Yeah, but you won't see a food addict addicted to fruits and vegetables. In fact, many have a strong aversion to them and only want junk to fulfill their addiction. Just like an alcoholic has to give up alcohol, you have to give up the junk food. You still eat, just not the foods that you wanted to gorge yourself on, and they still drink...just not alcohol.

Quoting thefiregoddess:

Yes.
Food addiction is real.

I had my stomach surgically altered in an attempt to help.

Its an addiction like crack. Only difference is you can't just not eat for the rest of your life
