If you’ve tried dieting, but find that you keep returning to old patterns, it’s a sign that something else is “driving” your behavior. This is the psychology of overeating.
There are a number of psychological and biological factors that contribute to overeating and they’re different for everyone. When these factors go unaddressed, diets are doomed to fail.
It Doesn’t Need To Control You
We all overeat and eat emotionally from time to time. Challenges arise when food becomes the go-to source for our non-food needs. Over-relying on one coping strategy gets us out of balance. Uncovering what it is that is actually driving our behavior is the first clue to making positive and meaningful changes.
