I have an eating problem: What you should do

A 32 year old woman emailed us “ I have an eating problem”, this letter cam from a professional person who has battled the issue for a very long time. One of the the problems in treating a person who overeats is the fact that they often do not admit that they have the condition. If you have an issue with appetite it is crucial to address the situation as soon as possible in order to lead a normal life. If you are like our e-mailer who admitted “ I have an eating problem” this post will give you a clear understanding of the condition and what you should do about it.

A hidden dilemma

There are literally thousands of students, professionals,housewives and men who live each day with an inability to control their appetite. This condition can cause very serious health complications such as liver damage as well as mental distress, many people are suffering with this condition but are doing so in private, the main reason for the shroud of secrecy is embarrassment. The brain is at the root cause of all overeating, almost all appetite control issues can be traced to some form of stress which causes the brain to trigger an strong urge to eat. You are not greedy, this is how the brain works! If you have an eating problem it can take over much of your life unless the issue is directly dealt with.

You are not a slob

People can be very mean to people who habitually overeat and this is extremely unfair, appetite is a complex issue that involves many different brain functions, it is not a question of greed. Abuses,stress, a bad job or relationship problems can all create brain changes which manifest as an eating disorder. Depression and childhood abuses are directly related to emotional eating, the brain's response to the stress is to trigger the release of calming hormones(which are released when you eat) The brain trigger to eat can become a problem and lead to addictions to certain calming foods. The brain will continually trigger the appetite response to make you happier but this can lead to obesity, diabetes, liver damage.

Just break the cycle

Will power is no match for a powerful emotional brain trigger causing an urge to overeat, but a diet created for to stop food cravings was shown to naturally halt the brain triggers, people were allowed to eat what they wanted and stop the urge to keep eating. The diet has worked in over 10 countries naturally. A natural European diet has caused thousand to beat the problem drug free.

Help for a very secret eating disorder

We received an email from a woman who lives with a very secret eating disorder, the young woman suffers from a private battle with binge eating and food addiction; this is a problem that effects many millions of people according to statistics from the World Health Organization. The inability to control appetite is an embarrassment for many but science says that an eating disorder is not your fault, almost all binge eating is connected to an emotional stress either past or present.

The brain,mood and appetite

Did you know that stress in some way is always a factor contributing to excessive appetite?
Researchers at the Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology revealed that stressful events secretly contribute to brain changes which trigger appetite. This research showed how events in your life contribute to hyper-appetite. The Study concluded that

High reactors ate significantly more sweet food across days. Increases in negative mood in response to the stressors were also significantly related to greater food consumption. These results suggest that psychophysiological response to stress may influence subsequent eating behavior. Over time, these alterations could impact both weight and health”

What is crucial to this study is that often people are unaware that childhood(or adult) abuses, divorce or even a bad relationship with parents can create a problem with appetite. Studies in Germany showed that depression or school stress contributed greatly to food addiction in young adults. Often eating disorders are held in secret due to shame, sadly people blame themselves for overeating when it is in fact other issues which cause the problem. The study from Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology made it very clear that a person can suffer very serious health problems for various eating disorders.

Do not live with it

Addressing an issue with food is essential for your emotional and physical well being, it is crucial to address the issue to avoid a deeper addiction. Will power does not stop food addictions! The hormones cortisol and leptin contribute to brain changes which create urges to consume large amounts of food. Millions of people live stressed or depressed lives and have no idea that they are depressed or stressed.

Regardless of whether you are aware of the causes of your eating disorder or not the fact still remains that the issue does exist and must be addressed to avoid serious health consequences

The failure of Will power

Will power is no match for a powerful emotional brain trigger causing an urge to overeat, only a diet created for food cravings was ever shown to stop the brain triggers naturally, people were allowed to eat what they wanted and still deactivated the cravings. This worked in over 10 countries naturally over thousands.

Can't control Food Craving? See Why

If you can't control a food craving it is important to know that this is a very strong addiction that can result in obesity, diabetes or other serious health complications. For many people the cravings for certain foods can become a very difficult habit to break, it is not your fault; science shows that the reason why the urge is so uncontrollable is due to the fact that the brain impulses triggers and fire an uncontrollable desire to keep eating. This is not your fault but it is an dangerous cycle.

How the brain hooks you and the danger

Brain chemicals such as insulin and leptin are extremely powerful, leptin and insulin and other chemicals all interact and determine your cravings for food; the brain triggers fire resulting in the desire to keep eating. For some night time cravings are when the brain triggers fires a response causing the desire to eat (or at times “pig out”, this is not something that will power can control. This is a powerful urge that can lead to diabetes, obesity and heart disease. The longer you have the habit the harder it is to break, the brain is in control not will power.

If you can't control food craving science shows us that for example sugar cravings react on the brain similar to narcotics such as heroin!

A study published in North American Association for the Study of Obesity revealed the amazing results of how the cravings can be difficult to stop.

The study conclusion:
Repeated, excessive intake of sugar created a state in which an opioid antagonist caused behavioral and neurochemical signs of opioid withdrawal. The indices of anxiety and DA/ACh imbalance were qualitatively similar to withdrawal from morphine or nicotine, suggesting that the rats had become sugar-dependent.

Sugar addiction is no different than Cigarettes or any opiates(Heroin or Cocaine)

What works

If you can't control your food craving it must be addressed before the effects ruin the heart,liver or kidneys, the longer the habit continues the harder it is to break. Each year people fail at dieting for the simple reason that most diets never address these powerful brain triggers, only a diet created for food addictions has ever been shown to stop sugar or any other food cravings. Will power is no match for a powerful brain trigger causing an urge to eat or overeat, will power is no match for the brain triggers for sugars and fats. Only a diet created for food cravings was ever shown to stop the brain triggers naturally, people were allowed to eat what they wanted and still learned to deactivate the cravings. This worked in over 10 countries naturally over thousands.

Why can't I stop binge eating: An Answer

If you can't stop binge eating there is a very good scientific reason., those who have tried but cannot seem to control their appetites should know that this problem may have started from the womb of your mother. It is possible to end bingeing disorder when you learn how the brain triggers the urge to overeat. Appetite is related to stress, depression and many other complex factors, those who suffer from various eating disorder should be aware that it is not their fault. if you are one of the millions of people wondering why you can't stop binge eating this post will address how appetite and food choice starts from the womb and how to stop the brain urge which causes bingeing.

Mothers play a very important role in the future appetite and food choices of a baby, Monell Chemical Senses Center a research organization in Philadelphia revealed that our preferences for certain foods begin in the womb and that our mothers play a huge role in what we eat as children but surprisingly also what we eat as adults. The study lead researcher stated:

What’s really interesting about children is, the preferences they form during the first years of life actually predict what they’ll eat later,” said Julie Mennella, a biopsychologist and researcher at the Monell Center.

Dietary patterns track from early to later childhood but once they are formed, once they get older, it’s really difficult to change — witness how hard it is to change the adult. You can, but it’s just harder. Where you start, is where you end up.

All bingeing is related to stress and emotional responses, the reason a person who suffers from bingeing cannot binge eating is due to the fact that the brain triggers the urge to overeating. What causes the brain to fire off a response causing the urge to binge? The brain triggers which signals the urge to eat large quantities of food in a single setting are mainly emotional. Stress, depression or childhood traumas can set the stage for a future binge eating disorder. The study above reveals that our appetite is partly determined by what our mothers introduced into our stomachs from when she was pregnant. As adults stress triggers from a job or relationship can cause the brain to trigger a response causing the urge to consume at times very large portions of food.

Binging reveals deeper emotional stresses, this should not be ignored, dieting does not stop a binge because diets cannot stop the brain triggers from an emotional response.

A diet created to stop bingeing

When researchers in Europe fed a specialized diet designed to stop the brain triggers which cause the desire to binge those who were binging stopped, this was a specialized diet designed for bingers which allowed the person to eat what they liked. The key was stopping the emotional brain trigger to overeating. The average diet cannot stop binge eating.

Only a diet created and designed for bingeing, food addiction and overeating was shown to work. This is now used in over 10 countries
