At what point does gluttony start?
#13
We were taught pre Vatican II, that gluttony of the Capital Sins is the hardest to be mortal. Overeating isn't mortal until you purge the food to eat more. This was a Roman thing. As I recall one that eats to the point of gluttony also has a sort of drunkness from the food and runs at the mouth in a sort of vulgar babble. This would make the girls that purge because they think they are fat the most likely candidates for mortal sin of gluttony. Okay I'll look it up.

Gluttony is a capital sin. They are called Capital sins, not because they, in themselves are the greatest sins, but because they are the chief reasons why men committ sin.  Baltimore Catechism, no.75.

Baltimore Catechism no. 75 e; Gluttony is the source of dullness of mind, excessive talkativeness, and gross and vulgar speech.
