This just in. FOOD is an Addiction!

Today I read an article entitled "Break Your Food Addiction: Habits of a Food Addict". After reading the list of 5 Habits, I realized that I am a full-blown FOOD ADDICT.

Who knew?

I thought I was just a regular mom with cravings for cheese balls, glazed donuts, and unnecessary amounts of chocolate. Go ahead and read this little quote from the article: "You may not even realize you have a food addiction. Maybe you consider yourself someone who has a terrible sweet tooth or who really enjoys food. But if you think about food often throughout the day, experience a physical craving for certain types of foods or spend half the time eating a well-balanced diet and the other half binging on less healthy choices, odds are you are a food addict."

So there you have it. Is there a group I can join? F.A. (Foodies Anonymous) maybe?

In all seriousness, let me say that food and I live through the best of times and the worst of times. I love to cook it, serve it, and create recipes using it. It can make me feel strong, healthy, and vibrant. On the other hand, when I consume thoughtlessly, food gives me heartburn, pads my hips, and causes my pants to go up a size. Boo.

I guess food is like anything else in life. It has opposition. There are good choices and bad choices. The information here is not new. It's as old as time. However, when it's classified as an "addiction", it makes me open my eyes and want to be more aware of what I eat and less guilt ridden when I give in to the cheese balls and glazed donuts.

What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you think food is an addiction?
