If your eating is ‘all in the mind’, not the body, then you may find yourself binge eating. Ranging from addictive personalities to boredom or loneliness many people develop psychological disorders that cause them to overeat. Here are some tips to help you, and the ones you love to refrain from binge eating.
Scientific studies show that fasting, or eliminating certain foods from your diet, may be associated with increased cravings and overeating. If you find this happening to yourself, or the ones you love, try to focus on eating healthy foods instead of dieting or cutting out certain foods completely.
Planning, and sticking to, a regular eating schedule is one of the most effective ways to overcome binge eating. Don’t skip meals as this can contribute to cravings and increase the risk of overeating.
Eat more fibre
Fibre is good for you, and the ones you love. Fibre moves slowly through your digestive tract, keeping you feeling full longer.
Staying hydrated during the day helps you to manage hunger and calorie intake.
Regular, gentle exercise helps you to decrease stress and reduces binge eating.
Try some of these tips out and see which ones work to help you refrain from binge eating.
