I am really happy to have brought this lengthy discussion of the trait "gourmand" to Ludeon Studios Forums, and I think we had a good discussion here, and we've at least decided that gourmand is really bad to horrible, especially on a starting character and considered whether or not this seems appropriate to us, not just if it's survivable, because most of the commenters seem to clearly think they can deal with it.  I am happy we came to some general consensus and hope some developers give this a look and get some insight as to what people think of this new feature.  We're at a long 3 pages if not just starting 4 now, so that's really a good amount to read about gourmand.  I hope it is also helpful for this great games development.

Is it normal that they go on food binge even when att 90-100 mood? I thought that was just if on low mood, but 15 days into the game a gourmand pawn has gone on food binge 3-4 times, always att 90-100 mood. Is that normal?

Gourmand is a perk I consider along the same lines as Pyromaniac. I will never accept a colonist with that perk. It's totally worthless.

Sadly, yes it is normal. 3-4 times in 15 days is excessive but they can food binge at any time. Pyros can light fires at any time, too.

It's one of the more annoying things about already annoying taits.

Yeah, it's like they're more likely to do it if they are in distress, but can elect to set fires/food binge as a recreational activity.  I don't know but assume they choose to do so less if there are more fun things to do available.
