1. You’re bored
So many people overeat to fill time because they are actually bored or do not have anything to do so they eat and eat. Some people tend to park them in front of the TV which naturally leads you towards snacking.
2. Fast Eating
When you eat fast, your brain doesn’t get a chance to register fullness and get a satisfaction so it screams for more food. If you can clear your plate in less than 20 minutes then you could be at risk of overeating as it takes that long for your body to recognize it’s full. Many of the people eat so much fast in an hour that they can’t even remember that how much they have eaten. Even if your belly is full, but your brain is still hungry and driving you towards more and more food.
3. Meal Skipping
Skipping your one meal in a day make you drive towards overeating because you’ve had a little slip up with your diet, maybe eating a cookie or a few chips which triggers the ‘Well, I might as well go for it now’ thought process. Skipping breakfast, skimping on lunch, or eating a late supper because you’re too busy to eat. The hungriness of that one meal that you have skipped in your whole day leads you to eat that much double amount of your one time meal in a day.
4. Too many choices
Variety of foods is also one of the main reasons that make you to overeat. We usually tend to get bored with similar tastes and attracted towards where we found variety in a food. Normally in buffets people usually witness overeating to themselves. This is the main cause of overeating.
5. Attempting to de-stress
Within 30 seconds of chewing and eating food puts your body in automatic relaxation response. Eating food will provide you with a quick ticket to ‘destination relaxation’.
