so appreciate you writing me with your concerns.  Know you are not alone. Many people use food as a way to cope with underlying emotional issues.  It would be beneficial for you to seek a therapist in your area to talk about your concerns and your feelings associated with you eating behaviors. To learn more about eating disorders and treatment options, visit the bella vita website.  And while you are there you may want to take our eating disorder survey.  Best wishes to you, Dr Patricia Pitts, PhD  The Bella Vita Los Angeles, CA

Yes. It's normal, but unhealthy. Read a book on the subject  or see a therapist!
