Behavioural Change Approaches to Overeating that Work a Treat! 

Get back in control of your eating and appetite for good!


Why do we overeat?

Most humans all over the planet overeat, and yet no two people are likely to have exactly the same set of circumstances for overeating. Our thoughts and emotions which are influenced by our beliefs, values, cultural upbringing, and the enviornmental context in which they happen, affect our behaviours, which become automated and often seemingly difficult to budge. 


The behavioural and psychological responses associated with overeating typically revolve around the type of food we eat, when we eat, where we eat, how we eat, with whom we eat, and our reasons for overeating. 


Circumstances around our eating can change over time. So our dietary needs as a child or adolescent, compared with pregnancy, convalescing, managing a chronic or acute illness, or older age, can be vastly different.

Feeling out of control with our eating isn't uncommon or necessarily pathalogical, and can happen anyplace, anytime, anywhere. It can happen whether we're feeling happy, sad, bored, stressed, tired, busy, ravenous, celebrating, on vacation, drinking alcohol, at home, eating out, during and after pregnancy,  menstruation or menopause, or when we're just simply not being mindful about our eating! 

What are the consequences of overeating?

The effects of overeating are different for different people too, and each person will have their own reasons for why eliminating overeating is important and even essential for them. 

For some it's about a single type of food they obsess about, and feel compelled to consume much more regularly than they would like such as chocolate, bananas, beer, wine, icecream, pizza, cakes, nuts, or crisps.

For some it's about the amount of overall food they're consuming on a daily basis, and feeling gluttonous and overlyful after each snack or meal. 


For others, it's about the kind of food they are eating which might for example be calorie dense and/or highly inflammatory and triggering illness and disease symptoms associated with for example metabolic syndrome, autoimmune disease, cardivascular disease,  cancer, skin conditions, or inflammatory bowel disorders such as Crohne's disease or ulcerative colitis.


With between two thirds to three quarters of people now overweight or obese in the developed world, eliminating overeating is a very common reason to reduce weight and feel healthier. We know obesity carries some serious health consequences such as cardiovascular disease (mainly heart disease and stroke), type 2 diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders like osteoarthritis, and some cancers (endometrial, breast and colon), so there are some life threatening and mitigating potentially life ending reasons to eliminate overeating. 


Many more people are wanting to  eliminate overeating in the current climate for planatary health concerns. Doing our bit to save our planet and all that lives in it, is becoming a way of life for those who have eco-anxiety and concerns about the future of our planet for the next generation. Taking individual action gives us back some level of control that we are doing our bit without relying on others' inaction.  

Why can't we put on the breaks to overeating?

When we realise we've overeaten, even despite knowing we're likely to do it and are determined to not let it happen, it's often too difficult to overide, and we often can't believe we've gone and done it...yet again! 


We often have good intentions to not overeat and we may even prep ourselves ahead of time for it happening given we know it happens so often, but unfortunately our conscious intentions have a limited time span and rarely last very long before the apathy kicks in and we find ourselves there again being impulsively driven by our unconscious and automated habits that overide our cognitive intentions. 


Why? Maybe because we haven't really understood the problem enough, our resolve to stop ourselves ins't there, our goals are not realistic or clearly defined, we don't have clear objectives to help meet our goals, we don't persist for long enough to implement our new behaviours and disrupt our long in the tooth habits, or other priorities creep in and we tell ourselves "sod it! This is too difficult, or the time issn't right. Next time; I won't let this happen again".  


Unfortunately, what's often missing are the nuts and bolts, structure, an implementable plan, and the dedication, support and committment to follow through to actual behavioural change.  

There's no doubt many obstacles can get in the way even despite setting our mind on a plan, and we can end up back at square one. The key change with Be Your Own Overeating Health Coach is that you'll have the necessary resources and support at hand to help you to persist with your intentions through to behavioural change, and keep to plan without having to start all over again some other time.
