If you too are one such foodie, you will surely relate to the points mentioned in the sections below. And if you are confused about your relationship status with food, then these tell-tale signs will definitely help clear your doubts about you being a foodie! Check 'em out!
Signs That Prove You are a Big Foodie

You Instagram Every Meal

Of course, they were!
You Think About Food All the Time
Right from waking up in the morning to going to sleep at night, all you think about is food. You are already planning your next meal while having the current one. So, at breakfast, you are thinking what to have for lunch, and while out for lunch, you're busy planning the menu for dinner! And all you talk about is food.
Food is Your BFF!
The thought of delicious food can change your mood completely. Whatever your mood may be, happy, sad, angry, excited, low, cranky, etc., or if you are having a hard day at work, you know you can always turn to your best friend - foooood! And if you are HANGRY, then only God can save the people around you. You can eat even in the middle of the night. All it takes is to open the fridge and hunt for food. You're heartbroken when you don't find anything to munch on.
You Can Eat Almost Everything on the Table
Whenever you are out for dinner with your folks, all you do is wait for the food to arrive. You just can't wait to lay your hands on the food, and try each and everything on the table. You also feel obligated to try every food item on every food truck that comes your way. Nobody has ever seen you complaining that you overate.
You Just Don't Understand the Concept of Dieting
Dieting is just not your cup of tea or coffee! You simply don't understand why and how people can stay away from such yummy food for such a long time. You keep procrastinating and finding excuses of not doing it. Dieting is like a punishment to you!

You Can Make Any Type of Food Look Amazing
You have an artistic side that helps you make your food look artsy and extravagant. Even your ordinary cupcakes can make anyone's mouth water and leave them craving for more.
You Don't Have Any Favorites
You don't have any favorite dish or cuisine, because you just cannot decide on one. Everything looks so delicious and heavenly! Spoiled for choice, you see.
You understand why Joey doesn't share his food. Of course you do! Nobody likes to share a yummy, mouth-watering meal with anyone. You get angry if someone touches your precious food.

So much so, that you won't mind driving down for hours for having the best hotdog or taco you've ever tasted till now!
