Psychology of overeating

I have never suffered from overeating. I usually have enough of the first or second, I do not eat two dishes at once. I do not like breakfast, although this is not right. To eat sweets and cookies is also not my option, I'm indifferent to sweets.
But I know that the problem of overeating is the main cause of excess weight. As I described above, it happens that excess weight appears due to hormonal failure. However, often those who just like to eat tightly are getting fat.

The reasons for overeating are great, and the first one is a habit.
Often it is formed in a family where parents like to have lunch twice, three times to have dinner and ten times a day to have a snack. They constantly feed the child, even when he is not hungry. Many people suffer from fattening because they were fed up in childhood. It often happens that in the family - a real cult of food. This principle of nutrition is especially popular in large families, where women spend a lot of time preparing food. Or in the countryside, where, apart from satisfying food, there is little entertainment.
People eat not because they are hungry, but because they do not know what to do with themselves. Sit in front of the TV and chew. I do not understand this, I feel sorry for the full people who had such a childhood. All their lives they are trying to lose weight, although, if not for parents, they would not have grown fat.
Childhood is associated with all of us with sweet! Why completely deprive the child of pleasure?
Thick parents calmed a fat child: "This is from your predisposition, do not worry." And he has problems because of appearance and in school, and in relations with the opposite sex, and then - at work, in society. You will not explain all this by predisposition.
I advise parents to feed children moderately. If a child ate two, not five times a day, - it's okay, so, he no longer needs, do not force.
At the same time, I also do not understand parents who are too strict about the choice of food. Once on television I watched the show, in which Julia Bordovskikh and her daughter were shown, which, like my own, is called Marusya. Yulia and Marousi were interviewed. The girl says: "I do not know what sweets are." How so?
No, I do not think there should be a huge vase with chocolate, cakes, sweets and marmalade on the table, and your child should approach non-stop and take it all in. I mean sweets as a kind of encouragement - once or twice a day.
Marousia Bordovskikh told how she once ate a candy at her grandmother's. It seems to me, it is wild. The child is on a diet - eating salads and steamed dishes. I also think that it is necessary to feed the child with healthy food, but I do not see anything shameful in occasionally to fry the daughter of a potato, or let her eat steak cooked not on steamed, but in oil, or treat her with candy.
If your parents lived and brought up you according to the principle: "You've got enough sleep, you can eat," and you are accustomed to it, you, of course, will have to think about how to change this habit. It is unlikely that the whole family's food system will be repaired overnight (and even at the parents' age it is difficult to change oneself cardinally), but it is always possible and necessary to work on oneself.

It is impossible to be full and overeating all life, blaming the blame on family traditions.
Be stronger!
There is another reason for overeating, whose roots also lead to childhood, but this problem is much deeper. "I think you always want to eat," one of my friends told her mother in her childhood. "I love you so much, I always want to feed you." I'm very pleased to watch you eat. " She is pleased, and her friend was a very large girl when she was a child and was very worried when she tried to get herself into shape, already living an independent life.
The fact is that often in the human psyche there is almost a sign of equality between that special meal that our mother prepared for us, and maternal love. Even at the youngest age, my mother's cooking begins to be associated with a good mood and a sense of security. Therefore, later, when, as adults, we experience stress, I want to return the former sensations.
It is easier to buy pies with cherries, such as our grandmother did in childhood, and so calm down - the brain itself will draw the necessary parallels between food and love, the mood will rise.
And if with the mother at that time there was discord in the relationship or you live in different cities, it's not so easy to feel her caress again. It is impossible to come to her with minimal stress every time and ask him to pat his head, hug and regret.
It is even more difficult to combat overeating, whose roots go away in childhood, if you were brought up by a grandmother, who became the closest person to you. Grandmothers usually prepare more deliciously and more often, accordingly the association "food - love" turns out more solid. Breaking this connection in adulthood is difficult, especially if the grandmother is no longer alive.
Mums and grandmothers want to feed us more positively, but to carry extra pounds to us, not them. Having matured, you need to learn to give up even your favorite pies and pancakes. In order not to overeat the flour every time the nerves are at the limit, you first need to understand the cause of your gluttony. And if it seems that you replace love with food, it is important to understand this for yourself, and start fighting against overeating.
These are not the only reasons for the habit of gluttony. Even if the girl was brought up in a family where she ate moderately, and food for her is not a panacea for stress, she can adopt the habit of overeating her husband. Men in general are prone to abundant meals, so a woman who cooks meat to her husband three times a day, and herself, sometimes, begins to eat on a par with him.
Young moms may also have this problem. Many mothers cook a manna porridge from the morning with their son, and they make themselves, for example, two sandwiches. When the baby does not eat his portion, Mom does not eat out after eating it, although it was enough for her. The idea to eat is superfluous, because it's a pity to throw it out, it's pernicious in itself. You need to regret yourself, and not the money spent on food - it's obvious!

Do not overeat - the second rule of a beautiful figure, which I formulated for myself.
On how to eat correctly, I'll tell you in the second part of the book.
