Reasons of overeating

Лікування переїданняMost people who overeat have one of two problems: regular and episodic. Periodic overeating applies to almost all people, for example, when meeting certain holidays at the table – it does not pose a serious danger, you just have to limit yourself a little, understanding the consequences. In turn, regular overeating is a serious problem that can lead not only to heaviness in the stomach, drowsiness, but also to various diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, obesity, and pathologies that can lead to death.

The main reasons of overeating include:

  • Reduced sensitivity of the stomach to changes in the amount of food due to the ability to stretch. The reason for low sensitivity is the arrival of a feeling of satiety only 15-20 minutes after the start of eating;
  • Thirst disguised as hunger. An organism that is in need of water makes a person feel hungry, which cannot be eliminated by eating even in large quantities;
  • Psychological problems caused by various etiologies, including: regular stressful situations, mood swings, self-doubt, low self-esteem, and other psychological illnesses.

Overeating symptoms

Symptoms of overeating are traditional and can manifest themselves in several forms at once. If you find them, you should immediately contact a qualified doctor:

  • Uncontrolled eating in most everyday situations: surfing the Internet, watching TV, listening to music, reading books, etc.;
  • A sharp or systematic increase in mass, as well as its sharp fluctuations;
  • Discomfort in the gastrointestinal tract, regular bloating, gas, recurrent pain;
  • Disturbed sleep (insomnia or excessive sleepiness);
  • The desire to absorb food even when there is no feeling of hunger, for example, in stressful situations.
