Insatiable food and an urgent desire to eat !? Permanent hunger!

 


Have you ever felt the urge to eat a piece of
chocolate or chips؟


 Binge eating is not an indication of a weak willpower.  If you feel this urge to specific foods, such as grains or sugars, you may have become really addicted to these foods!


 People with an addiction to certain foods may feel special symptoms such as headache, insomnia, mood swings or depression.


 They can overcome these symptoms, but only temporarily, which is when they eat these foods.


 Most of the time, the foods we crave are often refined and processed carbohydrates.  Because they change brain chemistry, by increasing levels of the happy neurotransmitter serotonin.


 We previously talked about how to increase serotonin levels naturally and healthily.


 People who suffer from binge eating, in fact, suffer from an imbalance of hormones and the neurotransmitters that stimulate this craving.


 If you think your serotonin levels are low.


 Do you want to increase your serotonin levels naturally without resorting to chocolate, for example?  Try to rely on the following alternatives:


 Identify and avoid food allergens, especially gluten and dairy products! Avoid alcohol Avoid stimulants such as caffeinated drinks, smoking, or stimulants Increase exposure to sunlight 1-2 hours a day Exercise moderate intensity exercise for 60 minutes a day.  Enough hours of continuous, deep sleep at night.  You can see ways to boost sleep quality here.


 Although their effectiveness has not been confirmed, the following supplements may help naturally boost serotonin:


 Ginkgo biloba Vitamin B-6 Acetyl-L carnitine 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) Vitamin B3 NADH (vitamin B-3 derivative) o SAMe (S-adenosyl-L-methionine)


 It is necessary to distinguish whether this craving is physical or psychological:


 Are you feeling really hungry in your stomach?


 Binge eating


 It may result from reduced fat intake or low blood sugar.


 For many individuals, midday or afternoon hunger may be the body's way of letting us know that it has been long since breakfast.  And that the body now really needs food for energy.


 A slice of fruit or a handful of nuts or a little yogurt really helps us raise our blood sugar level, without resorting to fast food that lacks nutritional values!


 Eating more protein is a good way to reduce cravings.  Given that protein gives a feeling of satiety for a longer period of time.  And one of the healthy food options for the body.


 The psychological factor plays an important role in an urgent desire to eat as well:


 When you feel stress, tension, anxiety or loneliness, for example.  All these feelings stimulate binge and eating.


 We may have memories of the taste of foods in our childhood, and feel nostalgic for that stage and what reminds us of it.


 Sensory stimuli, such as the smell or the sight of food, can trigger cravings for food, make us feel hungry and increase salivation!


 How can we overcome the appetite for food?


 If you are not feeling real physical hunger.  It is advised to try the following methods:


 Brush and paste your teeth, and use oral gouging.  One of the reasons for craving is the taste.  Nothing tastes good after an oral gargle! Keep yourself busy.  Remove yourself from this pose for 45 - 60 minutes.  After this time has passed, if you still have a craving.  Take only a small portion Exercise Relax with breath control and do breathing exercises or meditation sessions Choose healthy food alternatives.  Instead of ice cream or ice cream, for example.  Eat sugar-free and fat-free frozen yogurt if you know what types of food stimulate your binge.  Avoid them if possible. Drink enough water, at least 6 glasses of water a day.  Most of the time the feeling of hunger is actually caused by thirst. Eat healthy foods first.  When you eat unhealthy foods while your stomach is full, it is easier to control how much you eat.  But if you are hungry, it will be difficult to stop and control the amount. Try not to buy unhealthy foods, and not bring them home from the start.  Only get it when you really want to eat it! Chewing sugar-free gum is one way to keep yourself busy, to relieve hunger.  This hunger is usually reduced after 20 minutes of distraction.


 Finally, we are human .. so allow yourself some moments of weakness as well.  And eat what your heart desires


 If 80% of your diet is healthy.  There is no harm in treating yourself from time to time with the foods you like, even if they are not healthy.  It is relative and moderation is good for most individuals
