    Please check the other posts for great tips about psychological tricks and learning about mindful eating. My interest is in the physiological component of overeating. First let me describe a disease called sleep apnea which will trigger ravenous appetite which no amount of mindful eating will defeat.

    Those who suffer from a sleep disorder are likely to over eat when their body confuses sleep deprivation with starvation. This is called sleep apnea and it’s a very common problem. The more you eat, the bigger problem your sleep apnea will become. Ask your roommate if you snore. (You will not know about this symptom if you sleep alone, because you never hear your own snoring ).

    In Western cultures, we live in toxic food environments. The food industry makes money by making their food physiologically and psychologically addictive. The food industry adjusts dosages of sugar, fat, salt, caffeine, MSG, and aspartame. These are addictive substances that have a chemical effect on your brain. We evolved in an environment that had inconsistent supplies of calories and nutrients. The body stored calories in fat cells when food was abundant, and survived during periods of famine by using fat cell energy. Today, Western cultures are in perpetual states of abundance. The food is incredibly rich in quantities that humans have never seen before. The body is hard-wired to like foods such as sugars and fats. A large percentage of people in Western cultures become addicted to these foods. Obesity continues to be a huge problem since the 1980s in the US.

    The best publication in this field is by Dr. Neal Barnard. He has a seven step process for “Breaking the Food Seduction.” Go to the library and check out this book. Part of it is available online for free through Google Books.

    Another useful book is “Mindful Eating” by Jan Chozen Bays, MD.

    I simply became a vegetarian and shunned sweets and excess oils/fats. I lost 50 pounds and kept it off through this lifestyle change.
