Overeating junk food has an overlay of stress, emotional, hormonal, and physiologic responses; possible current life or inherited trauma; and lack of education and information on the issues discussed above woven into the experience.
In this progressive work, everyone's initiating factor is different - and generally can be resolved or settled.
In some cases, additional work is needed.
Sometimes it's due to an event that occurred during childhood (a trauma or stress).
Sometimes it's because of inherited trauma (it was Grandma, not you, who starved during the Great Depression).
Sometimes it is due to challenging current life stress (work, relational conflict).
Once you put that first bite in your mouth, you risk overeating, especially if you are already stressed or triggered emotionally.
In fact, the same part of the brain that gets activated by sugar/salt/fat/synthetics is the same reward center that is activated when one is addicted to heroin!!
Will dieting, skipping the junk food aisle, or eating at home solve junk food eating?
Probably not, but you have already tried that!
You can neutralize experiences fairly quickly and learn how to manage them with my Core Healing Initiative.
Arming yourself is the key.
