    What exactly do you mean by this?

    The day of the average person is filled with moments of both happiness and irritation. From what you've said about your psyche, this appears not to especially hold true in your case.

    Are you saying that you don't find eating food a pleasant experience, even if it something very tasty?

    I just wanted to be sure that I have the right picture about your post.

    I have come to this forum to research many thing about myself and others
    so I probably come as braggart to some people.

    As for the food, I don't like to be hungry and when I am hungry I eat.
    I just don't understand the cult of food. For example my father talks about feeding rituals
    and joy for the senses and to be honest I have no idea about what he is talking about.

    Man cannot live (long) without food. The instinct to eat is innate and there is pleasure derived from doing so. Eating to make oneself happy comes from this innate pleasure.

    Should I ?

    I simply don't see why there is so much phantasy about that and why people have so much problem in controling how much they eat.

    People are usually suprised that I eat how much I need and then I leave everything that is too much for me.

    I take it you've never gone hungry then. I mean, haven't you ever gone for a really long hike and at the end of it, you're healthy and your lungs are happily pumping air- and then you have to eat?

    When I'm feeling really depressed I miss the feeling of wellbeing from food. I can eat a lot, I can eat a little- but the evolutionary satisfaction of eating doesn't come.

    Please read the thread. That is the only way you will realise what I am actually asking.

    OK I will go to more direct aproach.

    Why people enjoy so much in some kinds of food?

    I have seen people how they are eating entire box of ice cream and they can't stop eating it. I am sorry but I don't see why that makes him/her so happy and it is my observation that it makes them happy.

    My family all the time eats sweets(like ice cream and pudding) after lunch and I never do that with them. I simply don't see what is so enjoyable.

    While I eat because I am hungry and I stop when I am not hungry any more.

    Sorry I'm a little obscure as usual. What I was getting at, is perhaps you've never felt the lack of wellbeing associated with a loss of appetite- and therefore can't recognize any "happiness" that eating does bring.

    I eat all the time and how much I need and I have never been on a diet.
