God-given authority over food addiction

From my earliest childhood, mealtimes were very stressful. I was expected to eat everything on my plate, and many nights I sat for a long time at the table, my dad keeping me company while I finished. 

When I was a teenager, I left home to attend a boarding school, where I discovered that food could be really enjoyable. After eating a full meal, I would go back for seconds. I began to put on weight. After a while, I tried to eat less, but the more I tried to cut back, the more I craved food. Within a year I had gained a great deal of weight and become addicted to food, especially to sweets.
