What makes it difficult is that you have to eat to live, while with other addictions it's theoretically possible to go without them. I've had it most of my life. Lost a ton of weight using Keto, thank you @Deborah, but during the pandemic I've gained half back, so now back on the wagon.

^This 100%.  tasty food dumps dopamine in the brain's pleasure center.  Same as a drug.  It's s form of self medicating rather than getting to the root of, and treating, the underlying problem.

Myranda:
I have a tendency to not eat when I'm feeling emotional as my appetite tends to disappear.

In times like that I'm so glad I have  my shakes.  They give me the nutrition I need, are super easy to make and clean up and as such are minimal fuss.
