Yeah, I used to get the same problem when I told people I suffered from compulsive eating disorder. A lot of people just say stuff like, "Well, stop eating then, fatty!", just like they might say "Eat more, skinny!" to an anorexic. They're just not understanding that it's just not that simple when you use food as a drug, whether you're using it as a prop to bolster your self esteem, or avoiding it to do likewise.
