Why So Hungry?

Why so hungry?

If food is a means to power the body, then why should it be craved in excess? You get energy from food, but the energy is of different quality depending on the source. Others would argue that a calorie is a calorie, but that seems to demean the whole argument. There’s more to food and nutrition than the calorie.

Food should be enjoyed, but not so much that enjoyment is all there is. You enjoy your morning butter coffee and after the cup is gone, shall you drink another? The enjoyment is there, though your bowels will remind you later why it is such a bad idea. How about a glass of whiskey in the evening? You enjoy your whiskey on the rocks and the mild buzziness that follows. Shall you drink another? Again, the enjoyment is there, though your head (and likely your bowels) will remind you later why it is such a bad idea.

So why are you so hungry? The simple answer is, you’re not. There are deeper issues at play than being hungry. How many times have you reached for a morsel, a coffee, a donut, even fruit, and berries, when you’re not feeling the pangs of hunger? Too many times to count, too many times to remember. You’re not hungry, and you know you’re not. Again I ask: Why so hungry?
