Glutton now means consumes food to excess, but it originally meant consunes anything to excess
Eg a glutton for punishment.



It literally meant swallow, but figuratively meant excessive and wasteful consumption.
gula
Quote:
Latin
Etymology
From Proto-Indo-European *gʷoleh₂, from *gʷel- (“throat”). Cognate with Old Armenian կուլ- (kul-), Russian глотка (glotka, “throat”), Persian گلو‎ (“throat”), Urdu گلا‎ (“throat”) and Northern Kurdish gewrî, gerû (“throat”).

English gullet


But also being full, sated, hence excess, surplus -
English glut



But the Church was obsessed with food. The Deadly Sin of Gluttony (excess, waste) was all about eating. In fact it was hard to do anything that wasn't gluttony (sin needs clergy for forgiveness, so it keeps the money coming in. A guaranteed revenue stream!)

Quote:
Aquinas listed five forms of gluttony:

Laute – eating too expensively
Studiose – eating too daintily
Nimis – eating too much
Praepropere – eating too soon
Ardenter – eating too eagerly

Gluttony is not a rare problem these days. I would wager most practicing gluttons would claim to have a thyroid problem.
