I like to eat.
I am endomorphic. Hence I am extroverted and like to be surrounded by people, comfort, food. People who condemn over-eaters are ectomorphic, skinny nervous types, who can neither digest nor enjoy food as I can.
In some cultures, fat is considered beautiful and desirable. If I fit that pattern better than the dominant more of thin beauty in my culture, then I should simply accept my misplaced role
My thyroid gland is lax, my metabolism too slow to burn up actually normal rations of food.
Certain times and places are themselves causes. Having food handy causes eating. Midnight causes eating. The whole is a mechanical chain reaction, in which the original stimulus is relatively unimportant. A diet is solely a question of habit and inertia.
6. Lay Psychologist
I overeat when other outlets for strong emotion are thwarted. I eat to punish myself. I eat to stop time, to avoid responsibility. I eat when I am unhappy. I eat when I am lonely. I eat when I am unloved.
6a. Freudian Psychologist
I am orally oriented. In childhood I overdeveloped my identification of food with love.
