Reasons You’re Overeating

Many people overeat and don’t even realize it. In fact, eating is often tied into so many other activities that it’s hard to pinpoint when overeating takes place. To discover if you’re eating enough you need to examine your eating patterns to determine how often you really are eating, and more importantly why you’re overeating. Overeating is most often a symptom of an underlying problem, not the cause.

Once you realize why you’re overeating, you can deal with the real issue behind your eating habits and be on your way to a healthier lifestyle.

Bellow you have some reasons you’re overeating:

1. Skipping Out On Breakfast

2. Eating While Distracted

3. Not Portioning Out Your Meals

4. Oversized Plates & Bowls

5. You’re dehydrated

6. Eating with others

Compulsive overeating is an eating disorder, like anorexia (starving yourself) or bulimia (binge eating, then purging), and can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. Compulsive overeating is often followed by feelings of guilt and depression, and compulsive overeaters often eat alone to avoid letting others know how much they binge on food. Overeating is also not the same as eating more protein to gain muscle mass. Overeating simply involves eating too much, inhaling your food at warp speed or eating when you’re not hungry.
