    No, it means "Don't I have the opportunity to eat something tasty?" not "Do I have the requirement to eat something tasty?"

    (In other words, "Why are all my choices unappealing?")
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It sounds like something said by person who is starting/on a diet.
