The Underlying Cause of Overeating
Whether you're at home watching a movie, or dinning out with your friends, you may not even realize how much you've eaten until you start to feel uncomfortable, bloated, and that burning urge to take a nap.

Overeating has become a huge problem within society and can even be a considered an eating disorder.

However, new research might have found why you overeat in the first place.

One particular study gathered a wide range of guidelines on eating and food from all around the world, as well as ancient food wisdom from many years ago. They were placed into a perennial principles format, including:

  • Eating whole fresh foods
  • Eating with positive feelings
  • Eating with mindfulness
  • Eating with gratitude
  • Eating with loving regard
  • Eating while dining with others

Researchers wanted to know how individuals followed these guidelines by taking a large sample of 5256 Americans who participated in a six-week, 18-lesson online course on integrative eating.

What did the researchers find?

Listen in as Holly Lucille, ND, RN, shares the recent study that might explain the core reason behind overeating.
