Stress is a leading cause of overeating. Researchers in New Castle revealed that people who have a hard time controlling their appetite are under more stressful situations. With the growth of food addictions in the United States and much of the West researchers are looking for ways to combat the increasing problem. We have stated on this site that emotional stress and overeating go hand in hand.
The diet lies
People who have a problem controlling their appetite are often met with nasty comments or stares from others who do not understand the emotional links to the condition. We have documented on this site the nasty comments from people who just do not understand the brain’s role in those lack of the appetite. Sadly those who do not understand food addictions will always offer the same failed solution which they claim as dieting. Dieting does not work for food addiction, this is not an excuse it is the scientific truth. Many food addictions and problems with food start without us knowing it. The are rooted in emotional issues. Often we have no clue where the problem began. It is critical to know this
Guilt is still the most difficult emotion that people who have a problem with appetite control experience. After eating too much there can be a deep depression and a feeling of low self worth. This is because we blame ourselves for not having the self control to stop eating. We are actually shifting the blame to ourselves the same way those who do not understand the condition. This can lead to more stress and more overeating.
