Food is my friend and my enemy Part 1


Food is my friend and my enemy Part 1, by Jesus "Eddie" Campa

My love for food is real. I am asked why I work out so hard every day and then eat what I eat. I do it so that I can eat what I want when I want. Don’t get me wrong this is a very bad habit I have, but I love food.

My biggest weakness I would have to say is food. Food is needed to survive and to have energy, but it can also get in the way. I am about to explore my love and love hate relationship with food. This is something that most people would not want to talk about, but in the next few articles to come, I will disclose my struggle with food

In a three part series on my love for food, I will tell you about the up's and downs with the battle to control the eating and the workouts. As I stated food is my comfort and this is where I find my comfort zone

I find comfort in my food. It is my friend and always makes me feel good. Food is something that I turn to when I am sad, happy, nervous, and hungry. Food at times seems like my only getaway. So people turn to drugs, I turn to food.

My addiction is food, just like my wife’s addiction is shopping. She searches for sales, I search for the ultimate flavor explosion. I would rather spend my money in a five-star restaurant than to buy brand name clothing. The frosting on a cake is my sugar rush. I love real frosting, not that whip cream stuff. The best frosting is from Sunny’s cakes in El Paso, followed closely by the Cake Cottage. The above picture is the from the cake cottage and the one below is from Sunny’s Cakes.

I just discovered this large single topping pizza at $4.00 for a large in El Paso at Speedy’s Pizza. It was so good that even my wife couldn’t wait to get home to eat it. She started to eat it in the car. Food is my friend, my safe place. In the next post, I will tell you about how food is also my nightmare.
