Food fills the emptiness inside me

Postby Screwed_Up » Wed Aug 09, 2017 11:01 pm

Hi all, I wouldn't say I'm a food addict and I'm not exceptionally overweight but I am somewhat heavy. I fear one day I may become a food addict. Eating junk food and sweets helps fill the emptiness inside me and takes away the pain I'm feeling when I'm depressed. It really does make me feel better. I try to eat healthy at times but I crave junk food. I crave sweets and desserts. A part of my hopes I get so big one day that my heart just stops because then the emptiness will finally be gone.

Sorry to hear that. Wish I had some advice. All I can say is if you want to talk I'm here.

I love eating everything especially fried food and sweets its just so satisfying.I still stay so skinny but in the long run diabetes and heart problems might catch up to me.A young body at the moment might process it well but not so well later.

How do you manage to stay skinny? I've been gaining weight and I just don't care anymore.

I'm able to stay so skinny and also not do any exercise cause its genetics.Your body either burns it quickly for fuel or stores it inside.If you are gaining weight a much more low calorie diet will be the best solution.You can do exercise but eating something like a fast food meal would easily put back what you worked off so that would be a losing battle without a diet.

I am similar to Castle as well... I am relatively skinny due to genetics, but when I did my last blood test, I found out that I have excessive fatty liver (can lead to diabetes) and limited function in my kidneys. I also crave junk food, but I know that if I have that one piece, im not going to stop... Its a tough mental battle, but I need to make sure my insides are healthy..

I would say that you are a food addict. You're relying on food to make you feel better just as would an alcoholic or drug addict.

The truth is is that it's not making you feel better, it's making you feel worse and the more you do it the harder it will be to stop.
