Hunger can be categorised into 2 main types: physical and psychological. Of course, physical hunger is the need to eat for survival, whereas psychological hunger is the need to satisfy a different kind of emptiness. For example, some people eat to comfort themselves when under stress, whereas others use food as a tool to regain control of their lives. In both cases, if peoples' lives become too dominated by food it can often result in an eating disorder.
On the opposite end of the spectrum are those who eradicate food from their lives; when some people feel they are losing control, they try and regain it in the form of their body shape and image.
