What you eat is what your health pays for. Eating disorders can be described as an illness characterized by irrational, inappropriate eating habit. It is something to be concerned with body weight, morbid obesity, and several mental distress. Eating disorder includes excessive or inadequate intakes that can change or damage our health for worse.
Here we will be sharing 3 major eating disorders that can gradually make you an obese.
Skipping Breakfast: Skipping breakfast is one of the major disorders. We often forget to take tiffins or simply skip it due to hurry. However, such a simple activity can cost our time and health later. Skipping breakfast rather means to have some other habits like eating outside or hitting the drive-through. For a person with normal BMI, it can have several other impacts including weight gain.
You might not have time for having breakfast in the morning, but it will make you habituated to an unhealthy lifestyle. Breaking your 8 hours long ‘Fast’ (during your sleeping) prevents your body to feel lethargic throughout the day. Hence, Don’t disturb the internal clock of your body; have a healthy breakfast and lifestyle.
Shopping Treats: Went to a mall for window shopping; saw a ‘chaat’ stall beside the footpath and jump onto having few bites? You might have thought to treat yourself and your friends but there, your health would suffer. Binge eating while shopping can add more calories to our system. Moreover, mostly the packaged foods cause high cholesterol and induce more fat in our abdomen. It mellows the metabolic rate down, resulting to which we tend to gain fat. Like, for those who have gone through a bariatric surgery, outside spicy and highly seasoned foods are banned. It’s your time, choose to retreat from binge eating to treat yourself with good health.
Eating Amnesia: Eating amnesia or unconscious overeating is rather a funny but true concept. At times, we consume food to quench hunger and at times we eat it just for a mood. The second case is an example of unconscious overeating. It becomes so hazardous that you almost feel to be in a trance while eating. It only paves way for further weight gain and having malnutrition. Mainly people end up overeating as their thoughts roam somewhere else. Hence, it is to suggest you not to eat when you are engrossed in some other activity.
Eating disturbances may involve some bad practices which are very common and almost all of us keep doing. The patients who often come for obesity treatment or weight reduction surgery, have seen to face some bad dietary habits. Therefore, time to ponder over these silly matters which we tend to ignore while eating. Eat in a limit to keep your weight in the limit.
