Here is the Wikipedia definition of foodie word for word:
“A foodie is a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food and alcoholic beverages. A foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger. The terms “gastronome”, “gourmand” and “epicure” define the same thing, i.e. a person who enjoys food for pleasure.”
Nowhere in the above definition is there any mention of:
1. eating for pleasure alone (as in eating only for pleasure)
2. making food your only (or even primary) interest in life
3. eating in an impulsive or glutinous / ravenous manner
It is the above behaviors that are problematic by the sources cited by GAON and others
The Rambam quoted above by GAON teaches us that when we are engaged in activities that bring us physical please we should not be doing the activities ONLY for the pleasure.
Making food your primary interest in life substitutes our true purpose for materialism.
Eating in an impulsive or glutinous / ravenous manner would actually be counterproductive to deriving maximum enjoyment from your food.
