“Illness creates stress, and the food addict thinks stress needs to be seized. If a person is overweight, then he is a food addict with food addiction, there are biochemical disorders, of course, but this is the minimum amount. If you find statistics on how many percent of our population is overweight, it will be all people who seize stress,

According to the psychologist, people who do not have food addiction do not seize it during stress. If a person has a desire to "seize" a stressful situation, then, most likely, he is addicted to food.

He added that the first step to solving a problem is to acknowledge it.

“It’s important to tell myself that it’s not what I want to do, but I have some kind of violation in eating behavior. As with the flu, people cough, so with food addiction, people start to eat more because of stress, ”said Khors.

In addition, he advised people with food addiction to try to eat food slowly, try to feel its taste, then “a much brighter pleasure from food comes, even at the level of dopamine or endorphin production, and the feeling of fullness comes faster,” the psychologist concluded.
