  Most people’s weight loss career often falls into a vicious circle. Weight loss requires diet control, but diet control can easily make emotions lose control. When negative emotions accumulate to a certain level, it is easy to turn grief and anger into appetite; guilt after eating will bring pressure again. This behavior of comforting oneself and soothing emotions through eating is the so-called emotional eating and stress eating. You may have had the above experience in your life. Some people think it is gluttony, or it is related to poor self-control. In fact, if you are obviously not hungry, you can’t control eating non-stop. Beware of “emotional eating”.
  24-year-old Xiaona is the marketing manager of a company. She was originally a slender girl, but because of work pressure, she often uses food to relieve her pressure.
  ”When I can’t sleep at night, I’m not hungry but I just can’t help but want to eat. My appetite is getting bigger and bigger, and I gained more than 20 catties in more than 3 months.” Xiaona said. Seeing her bloated figure, Xiaona felt very inferior and determined to lose weight. Can face the pressure of work, but can’t restrain the desire to eat a lot. Every time after overeating, Xiaona’s stomach swelled uncomfortably, and she started to take laxatives and induce vomiting. Over time, her gastrointestinal system frequently experienced problems. One night, after Xiaona ate burgers, fried chicken, bananas, and drank milk, she suddenly suffered from stomach cramps and was taken to the hospital. The doctor told her that she should pay more attention to emotional eating problems psychologically than physical problems.
  In the field of medical psychology, there are many kinds of problems about eating, such as retaliatory eating, emotional eating, eating disorders, etc. Appetite generated by reasons other than hunger, such as an uncontrollable urge to eat under emotional stimulation, and not to solve the phenomenon of physical hunger, is called emotional eating. It usually refers to the use of eating behavior to alleviate emotional problems, just like some men use smoking and drinking to solve emotional problems. Some people just eat desperately to relieve the negative emotions in their hearts, including anxiety, irritability, and anger.
  Some of the emotional eating of adults continues in childhood. The way of relieving and dealing with emotions in childhood is relatively simple. For example, some people find that their emotions are better as soon as they eat, and then when negative emotions appear later, they will think of eating to relieve them. Some people will keep eating even if they are not hungry, and some will keep eating during work.
  In many cases, emotional eating is often accompanied by a certain degree of “retaliatory eating”. If you are not hungry, you just want to eat, or even want to eat when you are full. Some people may even vomit after eating. Retaliation eating is also called binge eating disorder, and part of it comes from anorexia. For example, some people are very concerned about weight, dissatisfied with their figure, have a strong sense of inferiority, and have low self-recognition. Then, through desperate dieting, exercise, etc., I hope to change the image; but excessive dieting may cause pathological changes in psychology, also called pathological compensation, and then binge eating behavior.
  The medically accurate description of binge eating disorder is the inability to restrain the desire to eat, especially in the middle of the night, under tension or anger, to obtain temporary satisfaction through binge eating. For example, some patients can eat 5 meals per meal, or even the usual amount of food for two or three days, without stopping at all. Some people even induce vomiting after eating.
  Another type of retaliatory eating is similar to self-abuse. It uses pain to relieve the negative emotions of irritability, anger, and aggression.
  In fact, any form of overeating will cause harm to the body. Binge eating itself can cause disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, endocrine, water and electrolyte, and acid-base balance. However, chronic diseases such as obesity, hyperlipidemia, fatty liver, etc. may come to the door. The psychological changes brought about by binge eating are more complicated. For example, I wanted to eat to alleviate negative emotions, but this kind of overeating behavior will increase the feeling of inferiority, the personal abstinence function will collapse, the self-image will be damaged, and it will gradually become self-defeating.
  ”Hey, why didn’t I control it, I ate so much!” This new anxiety combined with the original bad mood will make people have a stronger desire to overeating, and thus fall into The vicious circle of worrying more worrying. Nervousness, worry, guilt, self-criticism, depression, loss of pleasure, etc., are the negative mental effects of emotional eaters. The accumulation of negative physical and psychological effects may eventually lead to more serious mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.
  Long-term use of food to relieve psychological stress is just an escape behavior. The source of stress should be identified and the problem should be faced squarely. For example, if the inferiority complex is caused by poor self-image, then other healthy ways should be actively used to compensate for self-image and gain self-confidence, rather than through excessive eating.
  As soon as some people experience negative emotions, they will involuntarily find what they have to eat, which has actually produced a conditioned stimulus. If you want to get rid of this kind of stimulus, it is best to put the food nearby so as not to reach it as soon as you stretch out your hand.
  If you are in a bad mood, you should learn to divert your attention. You can watch your favorite movies, listen to cross talk, or do something you like to make yourself more happy. You can also spend enough time to think about whether you should Should eat.
  There are many healthy ways to relieve negative emotions. You can do exercises, actively engage in self-talk, psychological counseling, and so on. You can also improve negative emotions through simple methods such as listening to music, tearing papers, and spitting out. Establishing better relationships, making more friends, and having more people to talk to are also better ways to change emotional eating. When necessary, you should actively seek help from professional psychologists.
