Is the passive voice possible of the below sentence?
I have been eating food.
'Food has been being eaten' is theoretically possible, but you are extremely unlikely to encounter it.
Actually, even the more acceptable 'Food has been eaten' is unnatural if the speaker is the eater. A passive is more likely in an utterance such as this, "I arrived late at the party and all the food had been eaten".
