Food addiction is just another part of covering up or masking the problem in someone’s life. Food addiction is the emotional eating of food, even if you are not hungry, because the endorphins released from the digestive process and the feeling of fullness in your tummy make you feel secure and wanted and loved. It can also help with feeling of protection or feelings of starvation, either need of which produces more compulsive eating than is necessary.
For instance, when the author was homeless for several weeks and not receiving enough food from the shelter, they found that it took a couple of years, even with plenty of food the whole time, to get over the fear of being hungry again.
It does not take very long for people to develop a sense of longing and fear of loss that they will do just about anything to get rid of. In fact, many people have experienced emotional, physical, or mental hunger in their lives for just long enough that they have some sort of connection with this feeling of loss, and do one of two things. They may identify with it and talk about how holy it is to be able to suffer. Or, contrarily, they may fear it so much that they will do anything to work things out so that they will never have to have those experiences again.
