Here is a new take on out of control eating. You would think that what drives you to have little control over your eating is the food or the fill up you desire. This doesn’t have to be the case. The motivating force can be the lack of self-control itself. You can think of this phenomenon in different ways. Being out of control can become a habit pattern. Once lack of self-control becomes a habit, it is as if it has a life of its own. You do it and do it and do it over and over until it becomes something you automatically do. Another possible reason for out of control eating is not wanting to be regulated or controlled or constricted in any way. The motivation here once again is not directly related to food or filling yourself up. The driving force has to do with the issue of control itself.
Do these reasons for out of control eating apply to you?
