When we snack when we’re not hungry, we override our satiation signals. Over time, those signals get suppressed, leading us to eat more and more. As we eat more and more, our livers get filled up with fat and our bodies start to need more insulin. As the process continues, we gain weight and become more diabetic. It’s a health disaster. There is, however, a solution. The first thing to do is to remove all the junk from your home. Make it difficult to pig out at night by avoiding buying any rubbish in your weekly shop. Next, make sure you get hungry before you eat. Set meal times and stick to them so that you get used to the feeling of hunger again. Finally, take away the stress and the boredom that is leading you to eat. Leave a bad job or relationship and focus on healing your emotions. Giving up comfort food will be difficult if you’re not in the right frame of mind.
