You are saying that you are eating 24 / 7. Have you wondered if you might be addicted to food? It is also possible that you are developing an eating disorder, such as bulimia or binge eating disorder. This often starts to manifest itself when a person is in their teens. I would encourage you to see your doctor about the possibility of having an eating disorder.
You might be suffering from a food addiction. Many people are food addicts and don't even know it. They just know that they cant stop eating once they have started. Once they pick up the candy, or cake, or even a piece of fruit, they crave more - even if they are full.
You have not told me what types of food you are eating, but it is my guess that it is the sweet junk foods? If so, have a look at this questionnaire. These are the 20 questions that the Food Addicts in Recovery group, a mutual support group of food addicts use to determine if they are addicted to sugar (as well as other foods). If you answer yes to just a few of these, you might be a food addict.
Even if you are not a food addict, you will be lured by the tasty quality of junk food.These foods are intentionally made so that it becomes difficult to 'not want them'.The reason for this is because these highly palatable foods potentiate our neurochemistry of pleasure. Once we eat these foods, our brains get 'high' with the pleasure of the increased neurochemicals.
If you are a food addict, you may be happy to know that there is a solution. The way to combat a food addiction is to stop eating the junk food - and still eat the healthy food. This may seem difficult to do at first. You need to know that you will feel withdrawal: this will feel like increased cravings, agitation, irritability, and you will probably find yourself giving in when you are hungry, angry, tired. These are the times that people relapse the most, as with any drug addiction.
The good news is that it only takes about three weeks for cravings to start to subside IF you stop eating junk food completely. Unless you sneak in a few treats here and there (like on a weekend or as a special treat)... which will serve to prolong the cravings indefinitely. If your addiction has advanced enough, that treat will be enough to make the cravings return even worse that before. You might find that you can 'get away' with eating junk food here and there - this really depends on how advanced your addiction has become. You are quite young, so you find that you can have a snack here and there. But, if you find that you simply keep relapsing back to your junk food, then you will have to stop completely. You can no longer 'cheat', even once in a while.
In some cases, people find that their food addiction is so advanced, that despite all efforts, they keep relapsing. If you find this is the case, you may need to get more help than just stopping the foods. You may need to follow a special food addiction diet and get community or peer support. You can find some of those resources on my website: addictionsunplugged.com.
