Hunger is emotional, hunger is spiritual, and hunger is universal. Overweight or not, our relationship with food is symbolic of our relationship with ourselves, and our hunger for food is symbolic of a deeper hunger that seeks to be understood. We are hungry for connection, belonging, understanding, and for meaning.
