Have you ever wondered why when you feel bored or lonely or sad or sometimes just bored? To make us feel like we want more food I want to find something to put on my mouth to chew. To fill that empty feeling And ambbet if you observe carefully Will find that the food that is put into the mouth, chewing, it does not seem to be of much benefit Most of them will be snacks. Or a soft drink, sweet water and claiming that the blood sugar is falling. I need to refresh myself.

This emotional state of indulgence is called Emotional Eating. Many people are likely to feel or realize that this emotion is difficult to stop. Or sometimes it may not be able to stop at all. How much you eat is not full Even if I'm full, I don't feel enough. Still want to keep eating But then why can't the body get enough? The more bored, lonely, depressed, the more we eat. Tonkit360 has an explanation.

We will already know that eating a lot Especially those foods that are useless Without those nutritional values It is very easy to get fat. This obesity also increases the risk of illnesses even more, although many people feel guilty about putting this in their stomach. But the guilt cannot fight the desire

When we are bored Why do we just eat?

Scientific principles describe this as emotional emptiness. Or negative feelings Without humans having any other way to fill the emptiness Because the mood during that period is what we call "Not in the mood" I don't want to do anything Feeling lethargic Eating is a way to fill in the void and to create a temporary feeling that we are “full”, which is actually “full”. I only knew that it was happier.

Indeed, this human emotional eating has existed since the Cave Neanderthals. According to human evolution When humans have stress or mental disorders from the original. (Which in that era is often a matter of natural hazards such as lack of food or being hunted) instinct to recognize those dangers. Emotions make the body feel it needs energy to survive. So it is not anything to eat But the picture of food in my head is almost all high-energy foods.

When stress begins to ease The energy that is depleted from escaping. It causes the body to react to stock up on energy like this to use again in case of a disaster in the future to have the strength to survive.

But when it comes to the present On a day when humans don't have to hunt No need to stay in a cave Know how to live in a society These social factors play a role in the psychological state instead of insecurity. When he perceived the danger The stress level will rise. There are various feelings flowing in, boredom, tired (mind), lonely, depressed, the body tends to need food that is relatively high energy to compensate.
