I am an Emotional Eater, What can Help?

The brain is too strong to stop emotional eating with will power says Doctors

The brain is too strong to stop emotional eating with will power says Doctors

I am an emotional eater, what can help? This was the latest email that we received Friday from a woman in her late 30’s. It is very important to understand that the brain is very much involved in every aspect of our eating habits, in fact, the root cause of all overeating stems from changes in the brain related to stresses. This is where we get the term emotional eater, the fact of the matter is that stresses effect our emotions and this is where the brain tries to help by seeking food.

 

Overweight, sad, stress, food

 

Biologically the brain can help you when your mood is down, very stressful events such as arguments,worries or even a frustrating relationship causes brain changes which signal the need to relieve the stresses. Emotions are powerful and can lead to a very unhealthy cycle of stress related overeating, this can cause obesity and other health complications. The brain chooses food as the method of relief. The stomach may influence the brain by releasing hormones, says Lukas Van Oudenhove, M.D one of the study authors and a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Leuven, in Belgium. If you are an emotional eater it is important to know that this is your body’s attempt to help lift your mood but it is not a healthy solution and needs to be addressed.

 

The failure of willpower

 

The study in Belgium showed just how powerful the effects of food was on the mood, the in take of chocolate or fatty foods had an almost drug like effect in addressing the emotions, will power is not strong enough to fight this effect. Do not blame yourself for emotion type eating, will power cannot stop this. What was even more amazing from the European study was the fact that sadness from just a picture ( such as a disaster or crying people) caused the brain to response by calming the sadness after ingesting fatty food. We can clearly see that stresses from jobs,divorces, or loss of life can cause uncontrollable eating in an emotional eater. The Food Addiction diet is the number one diet used over 10 countries, it was created by brain researchers to stop all overeating.

I feel guilty when I eat: Why this can reveal a serious problem

It is a common complaint “I feeling guilty when I eat” and it is a sign that you have an unhealthy relationship with food. Many who suffer from food addiction feel guilt as a consequence of eating too much. This site has been dedicated to helping the over-eater and we can gladly say we have shown thousands how to control overeating on their own.  Those saying “I feel guilty when I eat” must recognize this as a serious sign. Overeating is more than a physical problem; it is rooted in emotional issues which often start when young.

Lat month we reported on a 10 year old girl who took her own life after being called fat by school mates.  There are many who eat in secret to hide the fact that they overeat. The relationship with food is what is in need of healing. The problem many face is they never get to the root cause of the overeating. A key question one must ask is “Why?”

Why do you make the statement “I feel guilty when I eat”.  The “Why” is not always so obvious and that is what we make abundantly clear on this site. The answer to the question is often clouded in guilt feelings and negative statements about you.

Toughest on ourselves

If there is one thing we have learned form helping so many with food addiction is that the person overeating is often hardest on themselves. This is because the overeater really wants to defeat this problem but find it very difficult. This problem can take up much of your life and thinking. When you truly think about the statement “I feel guilty when I eat”. If you repeat it again and again you really start to understand that this is really unnatural and not healthy. Hundreds of overeaters came together and we discovered how to beat overeating. See here   Food addiction help

EATING TOO MUCH: Why dieting won’t help stop this problem

Dr. Johansson in Europe revealed that eating too much is not solved with dieting. In fact, dieting can make a food addiction worst. The reason for this is that dieting does not solve the underlying causes of overeating.  Obesity continues to be a growing problem and many are seeking diets to solve the problem. Eating too much is a problem that may secretly live with.

Why diets don’t work: Diets can be a great thing if you find the right one. The Spirit Happy Diet is the number one diet in Europe according to a recent survey but what happens when overeating is not solved by diet. Most people who have a food addiction suffer from some form of depression in the present or past. In fact, a bad marriage, bad relationship or abusive partner all can lead to the problem of eating too much. Did you know that most women have an overeating problem due to a difficult relationship with a mother, father, boyfriend or husband?

Dieting cannot address the real problem of over eating; this can only be solved by healing the underlying causes of the overeating.  The person that overeats wants to stop but cannot and it is not their fault. They truly want to stop but cannot. It is a problem that many suffer with in silence. This is the only site that helps people stop a food addition without forcing them to stop eating.  Many people are embarrassed to eat in public and do “secret eating” and this can make the problem worst. There are cruel people who make jokes at overweight people and this causes more secret eating.  Sometimes the jokes come from people close to you and this makes matters worst.

Eating too much can be resolved alone and we feel it should be, this is a private matter and it should be reversed privately and alone. No doctors or therapy is needed when you learn how to address the real root cause.  SEE HERE  food addiction help

Depression,Depressed and Eating too much

Depression and Eating too much

When you are depressed you may end up eating too much as a way to stop the depression. Brain research shows us that this is your body begging for the food in order to soothe the down feeling and make you feel better, this is actually a  coping mechanism the body uses that willpower has no power over. Mean comments such as “just put down the fork” are uneducated, eating too much is not your fault, particularly when your mood is very low . As we state on this site, this is not an excuse it is the scientific truth.

Overeating is deeply rooted in your emotions and this has to be completely addressed before you address the overeating. Overeating is a feel good response from the brain and it is actually a good thing, your brain wants you happy. This is not to say we are promoting unhealthy eating habits, we are not but we have done the research with hundreds of over-eaters that show it is not your fault, we have worked with literally over 500 over-eaters and discovered the root of the problem is not just a love of food. The root cause is a complex mix of present and past emotions and experiences that manifest as a food addiction or in eating too much.

Those who say mean things about overweight people are doing them great harm and possibly causing them to eat more, it is crucial for the over-eater to realize that much of appetite control is rooted in emotional issues that can go all the way back to childhood. We discovered after working with hundreds of people who had this problem that it can be solved by using a specialized diet created for overeaters and the issue is best solved in private without others to interfere. Most of your issues with food came from others who caused you distress. You can heal the issue of eating too much on your own. We feel we have put together the best information available in one report including the very specialized diet created by health researchers in Europe. See here eating too much

The Blame game: Why you blame yourself for eating too much and you should not

Those who have a food addiction often blame themselves for eating too much and they must not. This is based on Science which shows that a food addiction is not your fault. We have seen the mean ads and comments from others who say “Just lose weight” or “Put down the Big mac” This is mean and it may cause you to blame yourself for eating too much. You must not blame yourself and this is based on scientific fact not just an opinion.

 

A food addiction affects millions of people and many simply do not know they have it. Do you have stress or childhood abuses? Do you take anti depressants or were you teased it school? The list is much longer than this. Science shows that all these things set the stage for an eating addiction that you cannot control. The mean comments from others makes the condition worst. The stares from others and jokes keep you in this condition. Dieting does not work if you have an eating addiction and this is what those who try to diet should realize. This is where you stay trapped.

 

The vicious cycle continues when you try to diet. The brain will not allow for dieting to beat a food addiction. A diet may work for a short while and then the cravings start. You eat and then feel like a failure. You think you have failed your diet but your brain has created the brain addiction that a diet cannot solve. This is the dilemma that the person who cannot stop eating too much must deal with. The good news is that this can be defeated and you can stop a food addiction. We have shown thousands how to so it by eating as much as you like.
