Cues That Point To Overeating Disorder

Recognizing Overeating Symptoms

Identifying overeating disorder is easier than understanding the underlying causes of your overating. You’ll know you’re overeating when unwanted weight begins to creep up, clothes are noticeably tighter and your eating habits have become atrocious and your workout routines don't seem to be doing the trick anymore.

8 Cues That Point To Overeating Disorder:

  1. Standing at the refrigerator with the door open while you thoughtlessly shove food in your mouth.
  2. You keep eating long after your hunger has been satisfied.
  3. During times of stress you head for the sweets, fried foods, high carbohydrate foods and can’t seem to get enough of them.
  4. Boredom causes you to think about food constantly, and you attempt to bring some excitement into your life by eating and eating – and eating.
  5. Sadness and frustration about how your life is progressing – or not – causes overeating. When you’re overweight, the guilt that overwhelms you from having overeaten to this point ironically causes you to overeat even more.
  6. As crazy as it sounds, you may also overeat when dieting. Feelings of deprivation are likely to trigger intense bingeing sessions. Then, guilt takes over and more overeating occurs.
  7. When you withdraw from others such as your family and friends so that you can stay home and eat alone or if you’re ashamed of your body because of the weight you’ve put on, overeating is definitely a problem.
  8. Triggers such as being alone and watching television or reading a book may cause overeaters to grab food mindlessly and also eat it mindlessly while a movie or show is the main focus of attention.

Serious Health Conditions Associated With Overeating

There are more serious conditions associated with overeating. Bulimia is a condition where you binge eat and then force yourself to vomit to get rid of the calories. You may be overly focused on exercising and hide from others who may guess your dilemma.

Anorexia is also a serious condition that occurs from being obsessed with food and how it affects your body. An anorexic often avoids food altogether, but may occasionally binge when alone. Often, anorexics see themselves in the mirror and in their minds as fat and undesirable.

Recoginzing Eating Patterns and Bad Habits

Bad habits that you don’t acknowledge may accompany overeating. When you’re not aware of these indulgent habits, you may be oblivious to the fact that they’re causing weight gain, feelings of inadequacy and guilt. Become aware of how and when you eat to understand why you’re overeating and possibly on the verge of an eating disorder. You can find more information at Overeaters Anonymous
