"Why do people overeat?" Often it's due to stress. When we talk about stress, we need to talk about the hidden part of you that manages stress: your subconscious mind. - It does most of your thinking. - It handles your emotions and habits (i.e., behaviors you do over and over, such as overeating). - If you often overeat when you're stressed, that's your subconscious handling stress for you. Q. "I've stopped overeating at times, but I return to it over and over. Why?" Your subconscious mind is stronger than your conscious mind (i.e., will power). If your subconscious truly believes that food is the cure for stress, then you’ll overeat. But you can use hypnosis to greatly reduce stress. And by using hypnosis, you can teach your subconscious to have healthier ways of dealing with stress, so you won't turn to food as the solution. Q. "I've read about mindful eating. Is it true that it's partly based on pleasure?" Yes. By learning how to get more pleasure from your food’s flavor, texture, scent, etc., you’ll feel full a lot sooner. More pleasure = less eating.
