The brain may say "Keep Eating"

The brain may say “Keep Eating”

I can’t control my appetite: This is a common complaint from those who have tried to eat less put still cannot stop overeating. There have been many theories as to why it is so hard to control how much we eat but it was not until brain imagery came along that science really understood what was behind the problem. If you are one of the millions saying “I can’t control my appetite” you should not blame yourself

 

How the brain controls the appetite

 

The hippocampus section of the brain is largely responsible for appetite and overeating, there are many who have tried but simply cannot control how much they eat, there are many things that effect the hippocampus but just some of the events that cause this brain section to go wrong is stress, abuse(verbal,sexual,physical,emotional)divorce,lonely,bad marriage or a stressful job. It is a fact that most problems with overeating are related to emotional stresses, prior or current. What you eat can also influence this part of the brain. This is why it is crucial that a person who has a food addiction or a problem with constant snacking use the appropriate diet. If you are one of the many saying “I can’t control my appetite” do not blame yourself.

 

The failure of the typical diet

 

The typical diet cannot help a person who snacks constantly or has a food addiction, a typical diet does not address the brain hippocampus. This is also why willpower has been a complete failure for those who simple try to eat less, trying to eat less does not work. Will power does not address the brain. It is amazing what science research can teach us. The nasty comments from people who do not understand overeating are now shown to be fully unwarranted and just plain mean.

 

If you have struggled with constant snacking or are one of the many saying I can’t control my appetite please understand only a diet created for food addiction proves successful

It is important to understand that how you view food is a very important part of your life. If you are one of the many saying I can’t control my appetite.

Food addiction withdrawals what to do about it

Trying not to eat it will cause you to eat more later

Trying not to eat it will cause you to eat more later

Food addiction withdrawals are usually a sign that you are trying to win the battle by using will power. Will power does not work according to researchers. The reason for this is scientific; a person who cannot control the appetite has an emotional issue not a physical issue. Food addiction withdrawals happen to people using will power to address the illness. This does not addressed the underlying causes of the overeating.

 

What is happening when you are craving

 

The brain desires something and this is the root cause for the cravings. When you decide not to give the body what it wants the cravings for food become much stronger. At this point comes the uncomfortable feeling and sometimes pain. Brain signals cause this irritation. It is not uncommon to feel irritable and short tempered with other people when cravings come. This is often the result of using will power which does not work. We worked with hundreds of people who had a problem controlling the appetite and then discovered what does work. The answer is “emotional” not “physical”

 

 

Food addiction withdrawals happen to people using “will power” to try to solve the problem and this will not work.

 

This is why we encourage people to eat freely while address the emotional aspects of the condition.  Will power is one of the main reasons dieting fails the person who has an appetite problem. You may say “I will not overeat today” and this may work for a while but then you will end up overeating again. The cycle is repeated. Food addiction withdrawals usually come from trying to use will power to stop overeating. This will not work in the long run as the true cause will never been addressed this way.  The “Friends again” cure for overeating was created by over-eaters who show you how to stop overeating without relying on willpower.  Read it and be set free. Have a great day

The Depressed and overeating

 

The connection between people who are overeating and suffering from a depressed mental condition is common. The two go together and the reason has to do with the brain. Brain chemicals affect your mood or as many believe “Your mood affects your brain chemicals” The bottom line result is a clinical depressive state that may have to be treated with medications. Meds are excellent for clinically depressed people but they also can cause overeating and other serious side effects. This is the double edge sword that many face.

Unfortunately, for the majority “Why am I not losing weight?” is what they end up saying.

 

We have worked with thousands of people who could not lose the weight and the “cause” revolves around two things. One is diet and the other is emotional issues that cause overeating. There are many dieting when it is in fact other emotional issues that are contributing to a food addiction. This is also why may people fail at dieting. The problem may not be dieting at all. If you have unresolved emotional issues dieting will not work. Why I am not losing weight may have more to do with past or present emotional stresses than with dieting.

 

Those who suffer from depression or those in unsupportive relationship often have a problem with overeating. Becky at 25 was in an abusive relationship and this lead to her overeating. No diet could help her. And we have spoke before about Diana 39 whose mother caused much of her problems with food as well as her dating life.  If you are asking “why am I not losing weight” think twice.
