By making better food choices, you might be able to control compulsive eating behaviours and weight gain. You might also experience feelings of calmness, high energy levels, or alertness from the foods you eat

What we eat affects how we feel. Food should make us feel good. It tastes great and nourishes our bodies. If you eat too little or eat too much, however, your health and quality of life could be affected. This can result in negative feelings toward food.

By learning how to make healthier and more mindful choices, you may be able to control compulsive eating, binging, and weight gain. By taking charge of your appetite, you may also gain a feeling of calm, high energy levels, and alertness from the foods you eat.

Overall, there are many benefits to changing deep-seated, unhealthy eating habits, such as:

  • An increase in energy level and alertness
  • A more positive relationship with food
  • Improved health
  • Easier movement, and
  • Improved body image

While we often have the best intentions to eat healthier, this is often a challenging task.

Factors affecting our eating behaviours:

Experts believe many factors can influence our feelings about food and our eating behaviours. These factors include:

  • Cultural
  • Social
  • Family
  • Individual
  • Economic status
  • Psychological

Many people use food as a coping mechanism to deal with such feelings as stress, boredom, or anxiety, or even to prolong feelings of joy. While this may help in the short term, eating to soothe and ease your feelings often leads to regret and guilt, and can even increase the negative feelings. You aren't actually coping with the problem causing the stress. Further, your self-image may suffer as you gain weight.

Contributors are welcome to publish high quality clinical, and laboratory research as case series, reviews, guidelines, techniques and practices.
