To further understand why mental healing can help in addressing weight issues it is better to first discuss the problem – emotional overeating.
What is Emotional Overeating?
It is very common for most people to turn to food for comfort to either relieve stress or a reward more than pacifying physical hunger. As we gain more access to fast food and food deliveries, most emotional overeaters feel powerless over unhealthy food, in fact, fast food items are most common food cravings. For most emotional overeaters, when the urge to eat is triggered, it is all the goes on in their mind. Pacifying the cravings is as easy as dialing a number. Easy fix – but very unhealthy.
There are a lot of people who turns to food when they are feeling down. Some may find themselves diving into a pint or two of ice cream to overcome heartbreaks. Some may be drawn to chocolate and other sweet desserts when they feel they need to relieve stress or other negative emotions. In other words, food can temporarily make us escape whatever negativities we experience, or so we think.
While some people may experience emotional overeating for a day or two, maybe extend to a week or two. However, most people get caught in it. It is because the mental patterns caused the mind to build a strong mental structure to signal “food and eating” every time stress is triggered.
In short, it became a vicious cycle that causes a person to turn to food even when there is nothing heavily stressful going on. A habit is formed, and because we think it is okay, it becomes an “almost” part of our nature.
Faster EFT thinking system will never agree with that. Dr. Bruce Lipton (Biology of Belief, 2008), found that, since only 2% of the population are affected by gene disorders such as (to mention a few): Cystic fibrosis, Beta thalassemia, Huntington’s chorea.
To think that we have blamed genetics for obesity, this research is stunning! This only suggests that majority of the people are carriers of genes enough to keep us healthy and fit for a lifetime.
The truth is, emotional hunger can’t be satisfied with food. Faster EFT weight loss specific programs can change the way you perceive food and change your eating habits and choices. Emotional eating can feel like a quick fix, but the emotions and mental patterns causing it are still there.
Robert Smith, developed Eutaptics weight loss programs with one thing in mind, that emotional overeating is only burying us deeper in our problems and further multiply the issues. You need to gain total control of your mind and not allow food take control of your life.
6 Facts About Emotional Hunger
1. Emotional hunger has a particular set of food cravings.
The truth is, when you are physically hungry, by default the mind will perceive any type of food to be satisfying. That will include fresh vegetables, healthy slices of meat and fruits.
Unlike physical hunger, emotional hunger is almost always craving for something very specific, often it is food with high content of sugar or fatty foods. This has something to do with the mind, emotional hunger requires food that can provide instant rush to elevate the mood.
2. Emotional hunger puts you into a deep trance.
Trances are well understood in Eutaptics belief system, in fact we are in and out of positive, negative and neutral trances throughout the day, every single day. In emotional overeating, when you get into the trance you may not even notice that you have consumed a plateful of French fries, an entire box of chocolate, or a bag of M&Ms.
This means you are only consuming regardless of the flavor or the amount, your brain just needs the fix, a quick rush to elevate your mood.
On the other hand, when you are just physically hungry, your brain automatically triggers you to stop, you feel bloated if you eat another bite. It is the signal of the brain that it has enough food to fuel energy.
3. Emotional hunger is triggered without subtle signs.
When an idea has been aroused, it is all that you can think of and it feels almost like an emergency. Because your mind caused your brain to trigger stress responses that there is an urgent need for a fix, otherwise the mood will be affected.
Since what is triggering it is within the subconscious, arousal of the idea is beyond logic or common sense, cravings can happen even if you are in the toilet. Or maybe you are on a road trip and all of the sudden you are being signaled to stop at the next convenience store for a bag of chocolate.
Powerless, the next thing you know, you are giving in losing mindfulness.
4. Emotional hunger causes arousal of other negative emotions.
When you eat because your body requires it, it is very unlikely that you will feel guilt or shame. Emotional overeating does exactly the opposite, after you “snap out of the trance” satisfying your cravings, you turn the other way, spiraling down to negative emotions, until you get depressed again and need more of your cravings just to cope. It is a very unhealthy coping habit.
5. Emotional hunger isn’t found in your stomach.
Unlike physical hunger, emotional hunger urges you to eat even your stomach isn’t really complaining and empty. It is the very act of eating specific flavors, smell and particular texture you are looking for. Some cases it can even be specific locations and time of the day, depending on how severe emotional overeating is. There are really serious cases wherein emotional overeating can cause a person to skip regular daily routines.

6. Emotional hunger never gets filled.
Emotional hunger can cause food addictions, it can lead up to a point wherein you’re uncomfortably stuffed and still consuming, one last bite is a cycle that never really stops. In other words, there is never enough, always more. Unlike physical hunger wherein feeling just a little bloated is a sign to stop.
Understanding Eating Program Generators
Current active or on going experiences are unavoidable sources of negative eating programs. It is termed “eating programs” in Eutaptics because in a sense we step into this mental state the moment it is triggered. Just like how a computer program would react to a click or tap on the keyboard.
The following are common activators of emotional overeating:
- Stress – A highly stressed state will trigger cravings. Biologically speaking, stress means production of stress hormone cortisol. Not only does it make us react on emergency mode, but cortisol will trigger the brain to crave for salty, sweet and high fat foods.
Salty foods are essential to retain water, when the body is in emergency state, it retains water to the cellular level and sodium (salt) is needed to do that. This is a biological fact.
Moreover, fat and sugars are great sources of energy and we are biologically programmed to need them when the body is triggered to an emergency state, regardless if it is actual or perceived danger.
- Temporary escaping emotions – Most people use food as part of their coping skills to temporarily stuff down emotions that they would rather not feel.
It is very common among people suffering anger, fear, sadness, loneliness, anxiety, etc. While you’re in the mode of “numbing-out,” your mind sort of feel like avoidance of the issue is resolution. We all know it isn’t.
- Feelings of emptiness – Some people have programmed their minds to eat as a form of hobby when they have nothing to do. This isn’t bad if done in moderation or from time to time, but the problem arises when it becomes an automatic eating program to fill gaps in between activities.
It can momentarily distract the underlying feelings of emptiness and dissatisfaction in life.
- Childhood habits – Your memories of food are a precursor to your current food choices and eating patterns. As we grow none of our memories are actually discarded.
In fact, they contribute to this big network of interlinking thoughts which where our conscious choices are drawn to identify what is good, bad and neutral.
Meaning, your childhood eating habits that are emotionally charged, from preparing a particular sandwich with your mother, grilling burgers with your dad or eating pizza with the whole family – this can result to emotional overeating as an adult because of nostalgia drawn from the memories.
- Social – Eating together with a large group is a great way to celebrate and in some way, a great stress reliever. However, overindulging in gatherings can trigger overeating as you continue to eat because everyone else around you are eating.
Among many things, being socially influenced to eat is one of the precursor to keep on wanting more because it is easy to go along with the group.
