This is the refrain of a compulsive over-eater. This person is a food addict. The consequence of this addiction is usually obesity. A person who overeats compulsively sees food as the panacea for loneliness, isolation, boredom, depression, feelings of inadequacy. Food is a source of comfort when this person is feeling depressed, guilty or unattractive. Like most addictions, this is a vicious cycle. The more you eat, the more unattractive, helpless and out of control you feel. This makes you eat even more. And so it goes on.
