Sometimes yes.


I personally cut out 99% of that.. because i get sick if i don't.

I think more needs to be done on food addiction before they try to write it off


Quoting Anonymous:

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
