Food, like drinking and breathing, is a basic need protecting the survival of an individual. Having enough food is a recent achievement of the developed world. It allows people engaging in things less necessary for survival such as education, art, sports etc. In addition, food has an important social component; it unites and delights people. However, for some people eating becomes problematic. Far from its original function, eating becomes a tool to saturate emotional hunger or satisfy short-term emotional needs. This is associated with eating behaviour patterns ranging from excessive intake of food to food refusal resulting in a high risk of serious psychological and physical consequences. The transition from functional to dysfunctional eating is smooth, but some people end up with disorders such as anorexia or bulimia. On the basis of several examples different eating patterns will be explained.
