I admit it. I don’t understand what is it about compulsive eating that makes it difficult for the person to simply employ willpower and begin to have a healthy relationship with food. Yet if people can develop disorders related to chewing on sponges or snacking on toilet paper, why wouldn’t a compulsion towards tasty foods be real?
But I haven’t experienced the issue of compulsive eating firsthand, and do admit to struggling on and off with the concept of why the person just can’t stop eating. This is not me judging. I just want to understand.
So what’s your take? If you or someone you know has struggled with compulsive eating, please share! How does one break the cycle?
