Enjoying our favorite food is one of the greatest pleasures imaginable. Whether it's for reward purposes, celebrating or relaxing, it's hard to know the limit. This especially happens during the holiday season or when you over-stress. The line between overindulging and having a moderate portion is very thin. It depends from person to person. If you catch yourself overeating often, then you might have a condition called binge eating. If you start feeling bad after your binge, shameful or you lack self-control, you need to break that cycle. Binge eating can cause more serious health problems to appear like cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Another long-term effect is weight gain. Realizing and accepting that you suffer from this very common disease is the very first step.
We all know that we should only eat when we are hungry. Occasionally we choose to ignore this. The feeling of being full is satisfying and can make every situation feel better. It is important to know how and when to say 'enough is enough' to food. Continuing to eat when full is not recommended. This is important to practice if you are healing your relationship with food. Think of it as just another habit like shutting off the lights or putting shoes in the closet.
