Struggling With Nighttime Eating?
- biscottibody59 on 11-Jan-11 09:35 AM

The links to book excerpts below are from Overcoming Overeating by Jane Hirschmann and Carol Munter.

Small Bit From A Book:

It's So Hard To Say Goodbye:

This book changed the way I think about eating. It has a perspective of food and eating that I hadn't thought of until I read it. I don't struggle with nighttime eating at the moment, though I have at several points of my life. I probably would now if I could sleep on a full stomach like I once did. The way I sleep has changed all that yet again. Don't get me wrong, I don't go to bed hungry, but I know that I won't rest well if I eat too much before bed.

To me overeating is about boredom for some of us, but my thinking at one point (when I was in the throes of eating too much every night) was that my body may be having some ancient hard-wired reaction. It may have been telling me, "What if I can't eat again." In other words, food will be scarce (even though it most certainly is not in my case) so I'd better get my fill NOW!

Yes, overeating for me is about boredom OR STRESS - a certain kind of stress.

I think a lot of eating is also habit. Watch tv - eat. Go to the movies - eat. Feel tired, bored, stressed, in need of energy - eat. Food is also a pleasure that never disappoints us. It ALWAYS give us pleasure, you can depend on it.
