There are many reasons that we overeat. Even when we are consciously trying to lose weight, it can be difficult to regain control and understand what portion sizes work for our own bodies. There are 3 common reasons for overeating that I see with weight loss. The first of which is often the most difficult to overcome. So many of believe that food should not be wasted – which is certainly not a bad thing, but for some of us the belief is so strong that no matter what food is on the plate in front of them they absolute must eat every single bite regardless of how full they may already be. That is a belief that comes from childhood whether we were simply told to finish our food by our parents maybe not allowed done from the table until its all gone, or even extreme cases that if we didn’t know where our next meal was coming from so it would be absurd to waste food!
