Are You A Chronic Overeater?

April 06, 2015 2 min read

How many times a week do you find yourself eating big meals to the point where you are uncomfortably full? Do you have to loosen your belt a few notches or put on a baggy shirt to cover your food baby? Have to burp to make room for dessert? Feel like napping after a big meal? Eating large meals is a fixture in our culture and in some cases overeating is encouraged. In the last few decades, portion sizes in North America have inflated while the quality of food has dropped considerably. Overeating smothers our digestive power and of course leads to incomplete digestion and build up of toxins. It also creates a MASSIVE spike in blood sugar which kicks the adrenals and pancreas into overdrive (pushing them into depletion) to try and process what you just dumped on your body. As a result you feel tired, brain foggy and blah! Simply put, the act of eating past the point of being full is unloving. It is telling your body that you don’t care what it has to say and that you know better. Going against your body’s natural wisdom creates a relationship that lacks trust, respect and support. But you can develop a loving relationship with your body by listening to its subtle messages and honoring its requests. Tips to Break the Habit of Overeating:
  • Eat slowly and chew your food extremely well so you can feel when you are approaching full.
  • Stop eating when you are 80% full to leave room for proper digestion. I know that it is easier said than done, but your body will thank you!
  • Drop the Distractions. Eat in a peaceful environment without influence of the TV, your cell phone or a tense conversation.
  • Cut down on sugars and starches. Filling up on bread before a meal or dessert afterwards is a recipe for disaster and is sure to leave you feeling stuffed to the brim.
  • Feeling bored or emotional? Go for a walk instead. Nothing feels worse than eating when you aren’t hungry.
