When the motivation to eat is not promoted by hunger but by a nerve impulse, the health conditions are present sooner or later, because it is an eating disorder that goes beyond what you eat and how do so. To avoid problems, start by reading the following information.
Have you noticed the haste with which many people eat, which makes several times throughout the day and in significant quantities? Large percentage of cases involve victims of anxiety, boredom, anger or frustration, attitudes derived from the pace of work or the hectic and demanding to be carried.
Specialists in human behavior (psychologists and psychiatrists) call this eating disorder nervous hunger or stress, which until recently was considered typically female, but has gained ground among men. It is a need to eat quickly and thoughtlessly, without food, often going from sweet to savory, without being fully aware of what you eat, the amount, or the sensation of hunger and feel satisfied.
Some explain it as a way to blend emotions and food, without thinking that it takes them to get hurt. For some people eating is not simply to meet their nutritional needs, if it has become a hobby and a way of coping with stress, for example, many eat in an unbalanced way and unconscious because they have a highly conflicted relationship, have problems at work or feel at a disadvantage when compared with friends or siblings.
Studies have shown that individuals who are experiencing emotional difficulties often find it impossible to separate hunger from other feelings of discomfort and can not recognize the state of satiety.
A different way of hunger nervosa is the so-called “binge”, ie make a meal much higher than most people could consume in a short period of time and under similar circumstances. There are those who do from time to time, but this behavior becomes a disorder when you lose power or control is often done.
This is also a behavioral trait of someone with bulimia, but there are some differences: while these people try to compensate his feeling of guilt when self-induced vomiting, abuse laxatives or other drugs, exercise excessively or stop eating for several hours, who experience hunger nervosa and binge eating can give a feel guilt, but does nothing to overcome their feelings of guilt, although it is not uncommon knows she can not control what or how much you’re eating.
