Habits Make You Fat

Overeating is the result of habits and if you can target those habits and resolve them then the overeating and subsequent weight gain will be a thing of the past.

Humans are habitual beings and most things we do in life are the result of habits.

The problem with habits is the fact that they generally start with very small changes in our life and more often than not we don’t even notice them. Once they become habits though it is very hard to break the cycle and make changes.

Many people who are overweight have a number of habits that all combine to create the state that they find themselves in.

And what makes matters worse when food is involved is the way that it reacts with our body and in particular those foods that are low in nutritional value causing hunger and the need for ever increasing quantities in an attempt to keep us satisfied.

How often do you find yourself eating due to the particular emotional state of mind that you are in?
It is common for people to eat when they are feeling sad, depressed, lonely, happy and so on, as all these emotions can trigger the desire for food.

These emotional related eating ‘habits’ are very often difficult for people to break simply because most of the time we are unaware of the fact that they are present.

Sure you can see the pattern when you think about it or when it is mentioned to you but most of the time you don’t even consider these habits as the focus is directed on the need to feel better and the belief is that food will bring about that change.

Unfortunately this is not the solution and all it does is lead to more problems that in turn continues the cycle of overeating and weight gain.
