I have a fat fetish, I want to get rid of it Watch

I'm a guy, and I have a fat fetish. Before you say/think of it... no... I'm not trolling. (I wish I was)... this is all real.

I've probably had it since I was about 14/15.

I like overeating to gain weight. But it's got to a point now where I'm just thinking "no... it's not right" but I just can't get rid of it.

I'm around 1.5 stone (21lbs) overweight. It's not a crazy amount I guess, but it's still over. I'm healthy otherwise - I do not smoke/vape etc, and I only drink alcohol if I'm on a night out, which might be around once every month. If I go to the pub with mates, I'll drink soft drinks. If I'm having a meal, I'll do the same too.

I walk a lot, I cycle a lot too. I also go to the gym. I do eat fruit and veg and eat healthily too, but I do overeat due to this fetish. Like I'll go to McDonald's and have a large meal plus a 20 nugget box. Or if I walked into Krispy Kreme, I'll buy a box of donuts and have the lot.

I feel fine now, but I just want this to go. I know it'll be bad for my health. It's just hard though, like I don't know how to get rid of it? I try and talk myself out of it, but the next day, I'll go back to it.

I'm bisexual. This "fetish" also makes me interested in larger guys and girls (like 2 stone overweight or so).

I genuinely do not know what to do. Again, I'm not trolling. This is all for real.

Thank you

from what i've read it seems that your main problem is with yourself: how you view yourself physically, your relationship with food etc - you've included a lot of details about what you eat and don't eat, your weight, etc etc. I feel like there's this "need" or "compulsion" to turn back to the food or to constantly evaluate yourself?
I doubt that what you are describing (this attraction to larger guys and girls) is what a fat fetish really is - i think it's just exactly what you say it is: an attraction to larger guys and girls - everyone has their preferences. But then again i'm not a psychologist or anything.
my advice would be to see a doctor, or other healthcare professional, about your body image/self-esteem (and other problems if you have any). you'd be surprised at how much relief you may get from this, and it probably will be better to talk to a qualified professional than some aspiring doctor who doesn't have a baldy bout what she's on about for most of the time
best of luck petal x

Not really well versed in eating disorders but know some things about fetishes having one myself though not weight based.

If you're not attracted to overweight guys because they're overweight, you don't really have a fat fetish. Making yourself overweight can be incorporated (eg. gainer/feeder relationships), but generally this is for some kind of sexual gratification. Provided you do not get overweight to an unhealthy extent, you can make it work. But you should closely monitor stuff in that case since it could easily spiral and it goes without saying it could bend badly. You don't generally "get rid" of fetishes, if you'd rather not pursue it irl you can always try watching porn centred around your fetish to satisfy it.

If you're doing this because of some body image issue, it sounds like a more "typical" eating disorder. If you are unable to control your eating you should see a medical professional.
