Pleasure, survival, passion, greed, and enjoyment all link to one thing and that is food.

I, on the other hand, have a hate-love relationship with food: I eat it when I’m hungry, when I am stressed, and when I’m sad.

Nonetheless, if gluttony is defined as just the act of eating, or perhaps even overeating, it should not be considered a moral failing. Although gluttony could be seen as a selfish act that harms others, eating is also a natural instinct, unable to be controlled by individuals. Since the definition of gluttony and its consequences
My current view on food is that it creates a sense of comfort and fulfillment, yet this was not always the case. During my teenage years I struggled with an ongoing eating disorder. During that time I viewed food as a threat, or an enemy. As part of my recovery process, I was given a task to make friends with food. I first approached this task with a closed mind, finding a wrong with every meal I ate.

It is our seemingly competent nature, as generalists, that has led to the rise of the phenomenon known as the “national eating disorder.” Skewing food culture and trend patterns, we have come to trust in our natural aptitude for survival as a way to pave our way through sustaining nourishment while coming into terms with the opportunity costs that accompany all of our decisions.

Hunger is one of the greatest challenges experienced by those who try to cut down their weight. As they focus on eating less, naturally, what they do is eat small portions of food contrary to the normal amount. Although this may be logically acceptable, it is of great importance to consider the inadvertent consequences that come because of hampering with normal food intake such as feeling depressed.

All these factors and decisions we make daily have a huge impact on our society, and our relationships with others and food.
