The psychological and physiological health are inseparable, so if people are unhappy with their amounts, the “cure” is found not only a nutritionist, but a therapist.

Psychologists see the reason for obesity is that people eat not only when hungry but also when they are bored, want something to treat. Remember the famous saying: “well Done! Zippity-Doo!”, that is, we “reward” themselves with food: dry or sweet, and, as a consequence, high-calorie.

However, some not only encourage themselves with food, but also solve the problem: from depression to the banal boredom. In this scenario, “seizing up” quickly turns into a habit. Probably, many have noticed that when on for a long time remained at home doing nothing, then involuntarily began to coachnet: reading a book, eating pie with liver, watch the movie and send in your mouth a handful of caramelized popcorn… and time goes faster.

Man has will power and have to solve problems with reason, not to trust your life your digestive system! Of course, it’s easier to let it go than to analyze the reason, find out and take action. So you need to take to get rid of boredom, it’s easier to fill their soul with the 100th candy or 15th sandwich.

In the process of chewing creates the illusion that life goes on, and I are involved in this: afternoon – event hamburger – event. Life seems more fun, and the food becomes the main source of well-being, as if each piece is a brick of joy in the wall of destiny.

What is the psychology of healthy eating in addition to type recommendations: “you can eat some chocolate, it helps production of the hormone of happiness“? The fact that a healthy diet and a healthy mind are inseparable: there is no boredom, no “jamming”, no heartache, no desire to escape it using another piece of cake.

People tend to experience negative emotions, and then desire to focusassist increases. However, man is not only the digestive system, and something more: the spirit, consciousness, soul. When we understand this, then life will appear to us in the new color, and power in the motto “eat to live, not live to eat” will be the result of external psychological transformation.
