A brain disorder that occurs in a small percentage of people who have suffered from strokes, brain tumors, or head traumas—causes an intense craving for fine foods. (Ratey, John J., MD. A User’s Guide to the Brain. p 74-75. NY: Vintage Books, 2002.)

Injury somewhere in the right frontal part of the brain can turn some people into fine-food lovers of the highest order. (Quartz, Steven R., PhD, and Terrence J. Sejnowski, PhD. Liars, Lovers, and Heroes. p 3. NY: HarperCollins Publishers Inc., 2002.)

Compulsive eating is a dramatic restaging of the suffering and/or violence that people witnessed as children in their families. One’s relationship to food is a microcosm of learned self-worth, the stage upon which people reenact their childhood. If they were abused, they will abuse with food. The degree to which they are violent, abusive, self-punishing is in proportion to the degree of violence, abuse, and punishment they received. (Roth, Geneen. When Food is Love. p 61-62, 103. NY: Penguin Group, 1991, 1992.)
