Never before have we been provided with such a large amount of sugar and fatty food to choose from. Advertising for fast foods stretch far and wide and racks of convenience food are often offered at supermarket checkouts to catch you out on the last leg of your weekly shop.
These temptations might be simple to ignore for all those with a strong will, and yet, for many individuals they trigger a difficult psychological strife.
Whilst people who smoke and alcoholics are generally told that what they’re dealing with are addictive problems, those who battle with excessive snacking or emotional comfort eating will often be regarded with less sympathy.
This judgement from others often makes problems much worse, which can result in low self-worth or thoughts of self-loathing.
Never the less, people can in reality become obsessed with snacks like crisps, cakes, sweets and biscuits in the same way a person might become dependent on cigarettes or alcohol and that is why men and women often fail to eliminate their habits by using sheer willpower on its own.
So why do we comfort eat?
Read how start the New Year by kicking emotional eating habits once and for all and how Cognitive Hypnotherapy could help you achieve permanent weight loss.
Addictive habits originate from the subconscious. The brain develops psychological coping tactics as we experience difficult situations throughout the course of our everyday lives.
When we uncover ways that help us feel good, the mind might get ‘hooked’ on such strategies, driving us to do the same thing whenever we feel unhappy or troubled.
Very often parents will repay their children for good behaviour with some sweets.
Additionally, ‘treats’ like biscuits and cakes are utilised when children are feeling unhappy or if the parent wants to apologise for something (“Stop crying. Let’s go for a pizza”).
This might then lead to the development of life-long behavioural patterns, where these kinds of food are affiliated with pleasure and excitement, which means that the next time you are sad or down in the dumps; your first instinct is not to think about the problem or talk to someone over it, but to reach for the cookie tin.
Taking care of the subconscious mind
