As I’ve said before, the more I read about eating disorders, the more I realize that there are a lot of factors that can lead to them. In my case, I had an ongoing battle with what I call “food-obsession”. This is the idea that we always have to have something to eat, even if it’s just when we’re in the middle of something else.
The problem is that when you have that kind of obsession, you will sometimes over-consume. Food is one of the most important things that we have to keep on hand, but it can also become a crutch that keeps us from getting all of the other essentials.
You can look at it like this: If you have an irrational need to continually have something to eat, it can easily lead to your eating to much. Your body and brain have to work overtime to make sure that whatever you’re eating is actually doing the trick. On the spectrum of obsession, food can be on the obsessive end, and it can also be on the obsessive-compulsive end.
As you probably guessed from the title of the article, we aren’t talking about food here. It’s more of a food obsessed person who seems to have gone over the edge and is trying to purge himself and his body of all the foods that were part of his obsessive eating. We aren’t talking about this person’s food either.
It seems that this person is obsessed with the food he used to eat as a kid. The food of the past is always something that he tries to avoid and he doesnt seem to understand that you can change your food choices.
This is a common theme in the blogosphere. In many cases, a person will tell you they have only ever ate a certain food or drink before. In such cases, they will then proceed to say that they have no recollection of what they ate as a child, that they werent allowed to eat that food, or that it did something to them or something.
I’m not saying I’ve never had a food before. This is a person who has had a food before and was able to recognize it as some one else’s food.
This is because we all have a different set of memories. For example, you might have been given a small package of cheese as a gift and your only recollection is that it was a cheese. I have a different set of memories for cheese. I remember it was a dark, rich, fatty, red, strong, and creamy cheese. I dont remember any of the words associated with the cheese. I never had a cheese before.
Not to be too dramatic, but this is all just a way to let people know that you don’t remember. I know that sounds cliche, but it’s not. It’s a bit like hearing a song you’ve never heard before. You can remember it, but you don’t know the words and it’s hard to sing the words to the song.
That’s a good way of thinking about it.
