Overeating, as the name implies, is about eating too much. It’s a common problem the majority of us faces, and it’s a major disaster to our diet, especially when you’re in front of a buffet table with lots of guilt foods such as chocolate cake, fries, pizza, alcohol and more. It’s the reason your body goes into a food coma, which is the sleepiness you feel right after you overindulge.
Hunger is one reason why we overeat, especially if it’s the afternoon and you haven’t eaten a thing. Then again, it’s just one. It’s also possible to eat way above your limit when you’re all stressed out, or just plainly bored.
The 6 Sinister Reasons You Overeat
Let’s get the obvious reason you overeat out of the way: Food tastes really good. And some of it tastes really, really good. The truth, though, is that everyone likes food, yet some people struggle to find their stopping point more than others. Read more…

6 Ways To Stop Overeating
Humans have an instinctual (even good) fear of hunger. Take the book Into the Wild—when the main character can’t find food, his hunger drives him to a screaming, shake-his-fist-at-the-heavens rage, a stark example of the primal nature of our need for nourishment.

Overeating may be controllable, but it’s unavoidable. Even if you’re the most disciplined person in the world, there will always come a time when you just want to surrender yourself to it. What you do after that is what will matter most.
For instance, if you overeat, feel guilty about it, and do it again – well, this is a dead end to your weight loss goals. On the other hand, if you do something about it, like to give more time to work out, or detox yourself, then that’s a good thing. Again, it’s always in your hands.
You can use it as a reward but don’t make it a habit. Just watch out for the most common culprits behind your binges, and then know when to stop!
