If food captures your thought so that you cannot resist it, you are a glutton. If you are not possessed by it and partake freely of all kinds of food to the extent your body requires it, you are not a glutton.

Almighty God has given sweetness to every kind of food, and a person who receives it with thankfulness suffers no harm. But passionate attachments should always be avoided, for it does harm to the soul.

St. Barsanuphius
