March 15, 20243 min read

Food should nourish not only our bodies but also our souls. Understanding the 'why' behind our eating habits is the first step to making lasting changes - Dr. Glenn Livingston

Ever find yourself reaching for that extra slice of cake and wondering, "Why do I do this?" You're not alone. Behind our food cravings and overeating habits lie deep psychological triggers, often hidden from our conscious understanding. In this exploration, we delve into these forces and offer strategies for mindful eating, guiding you toward a healthier, more balanced life.

The Hidden Forces Behind Your Cravings

Many of us can relate to the bewilderment of late-night snacking or the inability to resist just one more treat. But what drives these urges? Stress eating, emotional hunger, confusing thirst with hunger, and boredom munching are just the tip of the iceberg. These behaviors stem from a complex interplay of psychological factors that can make food seem like the only solace.

It turns out there's more to our food cravings than just a love for sweets or a lack of willpower. There are deep psychological triggers behind why we overeat, and the reasons might surprise you!

To dive deeper into this topic, check out this week's podcast episode, "The SURPRISING Psychological Triggers Behind Overeating & How To Beat Them," where Dr. Glenn Livingston shares effective strategies for overcoming food cravings and embracing mindful eating.

The SURPRISING Psychological Triggers Behind Overeating & How To Beat Them

Understanding Psychological Triggers

Psychological triggers such as stress, anxiety, and emotional turmoil often lead us to seek comfort in food. Food becomes a temporary escape from discomfort, creating a cycle that can be hard to break. Dr. Glenn Livingston's work, particularly in the podcast episode "The SURPRISING Psychological Triggers Behind Overeating & How To Beat Them," shines a light on these intricate dynamics.

The Impact of Stress Eating

Stress eating is a common response to life's pressures, where food serves as a distraction or a way to cope with negative emotions. The problem arises when this becomes our go-to mechanism for handling stress, sidelining healthier coping strategies.


Strategies to Overcome Cravings

Breaking free from the cycle of overeating requires a mindful approach. Here are some strategies to start with:

  • Mindful Eating: Practice being present while eating, savoring each bite, and listening to your body's hunger and fullness signals.

  • Identify Triggers: Keep a food and mood diary to identify what triggers your cravings.

  • Seek Alternatives: Find healthier ways to cope with stress and emotions, such as exercise, meditation, or talking to a friend.
