All in all I'd rather not eat. There are far too many starving people in the world for me to enjoy my meal so nonchalantly... <em>ever feel this way</em>?

No, but I'll never throw away food, that's unacceptable.

Food is overrated. Some days I would rather pop a pill.

No, but I am mindful of my blessings and regularly support organizations that supply food for those in need. My starving wouldn't help anyone.

If people want to do something about there are plenty of organizations that would gladdly accept your help. Feeling guilty about it does nothing to solve the problems.

Nope. Do feel for those people and have volunteered at some charities. But I don’t feel bad for eating because someone else doesnt

Eating food does not bring guilt, but wasting food, does.

Nope, I don't ever feel guilty about eating and food is never wasted in this house.
I just packed up a food care box two days ago to feed a family. I am happy I am able to do it because I know what hunger feels like.

No but I'm thankful for the life I have knowing many people have it bad, if I screw up it's usually my fault.

My Mom used to pull that guilt trip on me when I was a kid when she wanted me to finish my dinner.

Hungry people around the world is a heart wrenching sight. I thank God that I live in a country with so much opportunity - even the poor people are often over weight! Our government gives billions to needy around the world and zillions of private charities send even more - more efficiently. I give to Food for the Poor. They report that 96% of donations go straight to the charitable work. Outstanding! Mrs. Budwick volunteers for Meals on Wheels. She delivers food but the stories she tells of her short visits with her clients are the most heart warming.

I know there are still hungry people in the world. I do what I can to help, but I'm over the guilt trip Mom and Bub try to lay on me.

I can appreciate what hunger pangs feel like but I don't think about others' empty stomachs when I'm consuming a meal or snack - it's just not on my mind.
