We can and will talk about different questions that you may relate to in a bit. But, for those who answered yes to any of these, it is possible that you have an emotional eating disorder. This can be a quite common thing for people who are constantly worrying or under pressure and stress in any part of their life. In order to correct this eating problem, there are several things you will need to do.
First of all, you will need to know why you are doing this. Dig deep and really pull out what it is. A fear of failure, a stressful life experience, or just plain old stress can trigger this type of disorder. It is up to you to find out just how this is happening. Once you know what it is, you can begin solving problem in order to stop eating and take back your health. If you do not get to root of problem, but try to diet and exercise, you will continuously find yourself falling back to your old ways. You have to take this step first.
Once you have determined just what problem is, then you can work for solution. Honestly, you may have to talk to a psychiatrist or at least a doctor. In any case, method is same. Drawing out reason and then solving it is necessary. When you are at this point, you will have to find a solution to your problem. For example, if you are under too much stress, you have to find a way out of some of it. If you are a worrier, you will need to find a way to slow it down, possibly with medication. If you are depressed, have anxiety, or have other issues like this, you will need to talk to your doctor about this as well. Weight loss can not happen until these situations are resolved.
Weight loss that is built on emotional issues like these need to be taken care of. Not only is it unhealthy to live in an overweight condition, but it can be very taxing on your life to live under pressure that is causing you to be like this. It could be as simply as relieving pressures or reducing stress. Weight loss programs that are used after this point will be more effective. Weight loss can happen when you are not fighting against yourself any longer. So, start with step one and find out what it is that is challenging your weight loss.
