Food addiction, Emotional eating and Abuse

How abuse leads to food addictions and emotional eating

How abuse leads to food addictions and emotional eating

The link between emotional eating, food addiction and overeating are all connected to prior abuses, this is the case in millions of people. A new study once again confirms what this website has been showing people for the last 4 years, dieting fails in most people who have a problem controlling their appetite because dieting does not address the emotional aspects of why we overeat. There are over 20 million people in the United States who are taking antidepressants, often people suffering from food addictions are depressed and only diet created for emotional eating will stop the problem.

 

How the brain creates overeating

 

A team led by Dr. Susan M. Mason, a postdoctoral fellow at the Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology, studied the link between childhood abuse and adult food addiction in 57,321 women enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study II. The conclusion from the study confirms what we have addressed on this site over the last 4 years, emotions are the root cause of overeating,food addiction, emotional eating.

 

Dr. Mason’s team found that food addiction was almost twice as common among women who indicated that they had experienced sexual or physical abuse before age 18 than among women with no history of childhood abuse “stressful environments may overeat so-called ‘comfort foods’—these are high-fat and high-sugar foods that can blunt feelings of distress by stimulating reward systems in the brain.”

 

The failure of willpower as a “method” in dieting is due to the fact that willpower does not address the true causes of overeating, until this is addressed the problem will not be solved.

 

Our food addiction diet is the number one diet overeaters diet in the world, the diet has been used to stop food addiction in over 10 countries because it is the only diet scientifically created to cause weight loss by addressing the brain chemicals that cause overeating

Losing weight then gaining it back: A solution

Losing weight and gaining it back: This problem which effects millions of dieters is caused by Insulin Resistance

Losing weight and gaining it back…this problem which effects millions of dieter is caused by Insulin Resistance

 

Losing weight and then gaining it back is a very common problem amongst those who diet, there is a very good reason why this happens and there is also a way to stop this cycle of putting on the pounds and then only having it return. The numbers of people who are overweight in the United States now stands at over 80 million, the consequences are serious, major health problems are related to excess body-weight. Help for those who are losing weight only to gain it back resides in the blood sugar.

 

Science has shown all returning weight is caused by insulin resistance

 

Insulin resistance is the cause of belly fat, obesity and diabetes, this is something that is effecting over 100 million in the United States today. The association of obesity with type 2 diabetes has been recognized for decades, and the major basis for this link is the ability of obesity to engender insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a fundamental aspect of type 2 diabetes, obesity and all stomach fat. It is also linked to a wide array of other health problems including hypertension,heart attack and poly-cystic ovarian disease. We have more children today living with obesity and type 2 diabetes than at any other time in U.S history, millions of children are all insulin resistant, our modern processed foods have made us all insulin resistant. The cycle of losing weight then gaining it back will finally end when you address the insulin resistance.

 

Insulin resistance means that your body’s muscle, fat and liver cells don’t react normally to insulin, causing your pancreas to produce more insulin to help blood glucose enter cells so it can be used as energy. All that excess glucose builds up in your bloodstream and can lead to diabetes and other diseases. This is the reason the pounds comes back after dieting, this is the cause of the losing weight then gaining it back cycle. Please understand that normal dieting will not stop the pounds from returning, wee are largely all insulin resistance today. What can help? numerous diets were tested in Switzerland and only the Spirit Happy Diet reversed insulin resistance and stopped the cycle of losing weight then gaining it back.

What to do about Antidepressant weight gain

The link between Depression Drugs and Weight gain

The link between Depression Drugs and Weight gain

Those who suffer from Depression are usually prescribed anti depressants, weight gain is one of the unfortunate side effects of taking medication for a depressed mental condition. The numbers of people in the United States on medications for depression are over 30 million, one of the major set backs from taking these pills is weight gain, anti depressants are known to cause a tremendous amount of increased body weight.

 

Sarah 24

 

Sarah was prescribed the anti depressant Zoloft and gained over 30 pounds in less than one year, the majority of drugs for depression are called serotonin up lifters. These drugs are necessary for people who live with depression. The drugs can be the difference between functioning on a daily basis or not, there are many who cannot get through the day without these pills. Clinical depression is a very serious illness, many are not able to work or do very ordinary tasks. The question is what to do about the weight gain from anti depressants, is there a way to address the illness of depression without the negative effects of the pills? Medications for depression work on the brain and they cause the body to hold fat.

 

A review published in 2003 in the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine stated that while weight gain is a possible side effect with SSRI antidepressant drugs, it may be more likely to occur after six months or more of use

 

There are many theories as to why the pills cause weight gain, this occurs even in those who are not eating more. Science has no direct answer as to why this side effect occurs but one thing is sure and that is it is not good. The use of anti depressants and weight gain is something you should be very concerned about. The Food addiction diet was shown to cause weight loss in people on depression medication

I can’t control my appetite: Here’s why

A typical diet does not stop the brain signal  that makes you keep eating

A typical diet does not stop the brain signal that makes you keep eating

Susan says “ I can’t control my appetite”, she is one of the millions of people who have tried diet and exercise but still cannot limit how much they eat. There are many reasons for this condition but science shows that the brain is most responsible for the problem of overeating, The deep root causes of eating too much can be explained. I can’t control my appetite, it is is a growing National problem that has many seeking a solution.

 

Turning off the brain response

 

The brain is responsible for how much you eat, it signals you to feel full and stop eating. Obesity is a national dilemma and the problem is showing no signs of slowing down, the Center of Disease (CDC) stated last week t that more people are dieting but they are seeing less results. People are eating less calories but the weight is still not coming off. This is something we have addressed on this site for a long time, calorie counting will not lead to more weight loss. Only a diet created for people who have a problem controlling how much they eat will work. “I can’t control my appetite”, what this means is the brain hippocampus is not working properly and you will continue to over eat. This is why dieting fails, it does not address the root causes of overeating.

 

Emotional triggers

 

Divorce, break up and a loss of a loved one can all alter brain hippocampus function and cause uncontrolled appetite. Childhood events and stress also set the brain up for food addiction. The failure of the popular diets can be attributed to the fact that they have adopted a cookie cutter style to dieting, one size fits all and this does not work. “ I can’t control mu appetite” this statement alone should tell us that a typical diet will not work for an over-eater, a diet for overeating must be based on real brain research to reverse the problem

I Hate my Body: 7 year old’s and the media

I hate my body is a common complaint from women but what is more scary is that there are girls as young as 7 are expression growing dissatisfaction with their bodies. What this tells us is that the media has a growing influence on female body image. As the obesity crisis continues it is causing more depression among women trying to meet a certain body image. “I hate my body” can mean a future eating disorder is near.

Girls and how they few their bodies

 

A Swedish study by Birgitta Edlund, Klara Halvarsson, Per-Olow Sjödén found that girls as young as 7 were dieting and were extremely concerned with body image. Although these girls were found to be average weight almost 30% of them were “dieting to lose weight” Being healthy is fine but when 7 year old’s are already getting a distorted image of themselves we have a problem. Many of these little girls are on the road to overeating, the stress from trying to maintain an unrealistic body image leads to brain changes that create overeating. “I hate my body” is becoming a common response when women are asked to describe their bodies.

 

Fat ?

 

A Study conducted amongst teen boys age 15-18 in 2008 found that Marilyn Monroe was described as “Fat” by the boys. The picture in the study was every teens boy’s dream in the 1950’s but was not acceptable today. When asked why they thought she was fat most compared her to waif like models of today. Unrealistic body images create food addictions, emotional stresses cause overeating and when women cannot meet the image that is being pumped in their heads from media on a daily, overeating can occur.

 

I hate my body

 

Men contribute to low self esteem in women by reinforcing the preference of the childlike girl over the grown woman. Increasingly men are being influenced to prefer the thin teen body over the grown woman. It is important for women to understand that most overeating is caused by emotional stress which are not controlled by will power.

Why a typical diet cannot stop a food addiction

How the Brain causes your appetite to stop or increase

How the Brain causes your appetite to stop or increase

A typical diet will not stop a food addiction, this has been proven by brain and science researchers. The dilemma that faces so many people who have a hard time controlling the appetite is what should I eat. This can be a daily battle that can include various low calorie foods to not eating at all, it all been very frustrating. It must be stated that to stop a food addiction a typical diet will not work

 

 

Food addicted and the failed diet

 

The reason so many people fail at dieting is due to the fact that they have not factored in brain research revealing how appetite control works. Thankfully the use of brain imaging has helped us better understand the condition of uncontrolled appetite. A person who needs constant snacks or who eats more than necessary has areas of the brain that should be controlling appetite but it is not going so well. This is the main reason that dieting fails, dieting cannot work when the brain section that controls appetite is effected negatively. It is clear from brain imagining that a typical diet will not stop food addiction nor will it help control appetite.

 

 

Due to these new finding it is clear that will power is a failed approach to controlling the appetite. The failed will power approach is based on the misconception that you can convince yourself to eat less by just trying hard enough. Those who have tried this approach and failed have been considered weak, often they were told that they did not have any self control. What a horrible way to look at the situation. We can see that when the appetite section of the brain is effected negatively that will power will not work. Food can be just as addictive as any drugs, until the appetite section of the brain is corrected.

 

There is only on diet in the world that has been proven to correct the appetite control center and address the emotional aspects of the condition. See here Diet for Food addiction
