If you are too worried about over eating, it may not entirely be your fault. There are many reasons that can make you do so.

If you just cant stop yourself from eating over and over these might be the possible causes behind it.

You eat your food too quickly

One should eat slowly, chew each bite carefully. The act of chewing is part of the process that helps your brain realise that you’re full, so the more you chew, the better.

Eating from large plates and bowls

If you eat from large plate or bowls chances are you will end up over eating the food. Using a smaller plate can help you cut down the amount of food you eat by 20 percent.

You are stressed out

When you are stressed out, you are likely to eat more food than normally you do. This happens because your body releases the hormone cortisol to keep you on your toes and ensure your survival in case you’re in danger.

You don’t pay attention to what you eat

A study conducted by researchers at Cornell University found that people who were not paying attention to what they were eating were more likely to overeat.

You are probably in a messy environment

A study published in the journal Environment and Behavior found that women who were in messy kitchens and felt like the situation was out of control tended to eat more than women who were in clean kitchens.
