Food addicts become dependent upon the “good” feelings that are obtained from consuming certain foods, which often perpetuates a continued need to eat, even when not hungry. These behaviors generate a vicious cycle of food addiction. As the food addict continues to gorge upon foods that induce pleasurable feelings, they often overindulge and eat beyond what is required for satiety and normal nutrition.
Although my above statement is 100% true but it is very difficult for me to prove for a common people. So I will start from worldly known truth... while working you will consume energy and if you will not have proper food you may lose the weight. Its true but I ask you one question suppose you are very much tired exhausted up to extreme level, in that case which gives you energy ......Sleep or Food..??
Unknowingly you will say I need both, But firstly you will say without sleep you can’t be fresh just by having enough food.
If food could restore vital power, there would not have been any need of sleep and then at the end of the day, when vitality is exhausted, one could have taken a hearty meal and continued working throughout the night.
I mean to say due to misconception we are addicted to food so much that overeating is a very normal practice in the society and much unneeded food is gulped down and the result is accumulation of impurities and obesity .
