That birthday cake your husband gave you
Those cookies that your kids bought at the bake sale
The donuts your boss brought for the morning meeting
Junk food is all around us. Sometimes, it can feel impossible to escape it. And, if you suffer from compulsive eating, it can be just the ammunition your brain needs to destroy your diet.
For millions of people, junk food isn’t a sweet treat. Instead, it’s part of a daily struggle. Many overeaters head straight to the junk food. Cookies, candy, potato chips… if you’re a compulsive overeater, it doesn’t matter what it is. All that matters is diving into it.
People who overeat do so for 1 of 3 reasons:
- They are literally addicted to food, just like an alcoholic is addicted to drinking
- They are on a diet that’s too severe, and their bodies simply can’t take all of the deprivation
- They are eating to mask bad emotions and enhance good ones
If junk food is your Kryptonite, all of the dieting and willpower in the world will not help you, because, the truth is, you don’t need a diet. You need a plan that changes your attitudes and behaviors.
