    Food tastes really good. And for some of us, it just takes more will power than we have to always say no.

    it sneaks up on them, kinda like alcohol does, before you know it, you are fat and out of control, and at that weight, regaining control is almost impossible......

    It's called "comfort eating" which means when the person is depressed, they tend to eat a lot.

    because its easy to eat for pleasure and get carried away with it, and its hard to lose weight and be consistent with it.

    Some people are addicted to drugs. Some people are addicted to alcohol. Some are addicted to cigarettes. And some are addicted to food. All can kill you in a matter of years. These people who eat and eat and eat are addicted to food and cannot stop without therapy and counseling, and for some, inpatient treatment, like any addict. People tend to take food addiction too lightly, thinking, how they can get addicted to eating? It's a comfort, it's there, it makes them feel better, like the bottle for an alcoholic. Same exact concept, but people don't perceive them as addicts, just fat and lazy with no self control. You replace the burgers with heroine and suddenly, AH, AN ADDICT! No difference. These people need more mental help than anything.

    People overeat for a variety of reasons, often emotional.  Surely you know that?
