Are you an all or nothing, black or white, can go days wihtout overeating but once you start you can’t stop sort of person? If yes, you maybe a food addict.
You may try to change your eating habits, but at the first stumble, you think I’ve failed, I blew it, I’m bad or whatever you do to beat yourself up. You stop doing everything that you were doing that was working.
That’s like spraining an ankle and amputating the leg, or having a flat tire and junnking the whole car. Keep on keeping on.
