2- Why do we overeat
Before you lost the weight, what was it that caused you to overeat? It’s important to understand this and to know if you are snacking when you are stressed, or rather when you want to indulge.
For some people, the trigger for appetite may be related to hormones. For example, the hormonal changes that accompany premenstrual symptoms make many women feel hungry. Mood can also play a role. “The typical example is depression,” comments Dr. Lau. When people are depressed, they tend to become physically inactive and compulsively seek out something that brings them comfort, and that is often food.”
