The same food can taste good sometimes and bad at other times.

What is true about the body such that this is possible?

When I first begin to eat something, the food tastes good more often, but usually only for a few bites. Once I have eaten some, the food begins to taste bad with ill effects to follow - especially if I chew the food thoroughly. This can also be the case with water.

Once upon a time, I ate and was fine with it, but now I think I have a disordered relationship to eating. Although I never feel hunger, I continue the habit of eating, even past the point where the food turns bad.

Food as a foreign object that exists outside of the body and is not already an integral part of the body, can't be inherently designed to serve the human body.

If food is truly poisonous, how can I want to consume it? And once tasted, how can I want to continue to consume something like that? How can addiction - if disempowering - exist in the first place?

I really want to get to the bottom of my addiction and be free of it. I feel like food, as fundamental as it is to our culture and the physical life on Earth, will be 'the one challenge' I need to overcome to realize my own power.

What are your experiences about this?

I think that it is not the food that is addictive. Compulsive thoughts are addictive to the ego and may create certain habits.

You could try to observe your feelings and thoughts about food. You say that you eat even though you never feel hungry. I feel the same actually. When you eat, do you feel afraid of what could happen if you don't eat? Try to feel what you're afraid of: death, weakness, starvation, pain, other people's reactions? Or is it something else that makes you eat? Observe your inner realm closely. Reacting to your fear is the real addiction. Eating is neither good or bad. It is just an experience.

I am not free of the ego yet, but this is just what I would observe to find the answers you are looking for.

My experiences about this: I usually eat, because I feel like I have to, for some reason. For example, I might not want to feel the unease that comes when I'm not eating. Or I think about what other people would think of me if I don't eat for a long time. Or I might be afraid of my body's reaction. (I don't know what my body will do if I don't eat for a long time.) It is always some kind of fear. Even if there is a desire for food. The moment I eat I don't really feel like I do so, because of the desire, but I eat because I am afraid of feeling the strength of the desire which creates a certain kind of pain.

I am not saying you should go against your fear to overcome it, you should just observe your fear to become free of it. Like this, you will expand your conciousness by bringing light into unconscious areas of your life.

I hope I could help somehow.

EDIT: Is food really pleasurable to you? It doesn't sound like you eat out of pleasure.
