Overeating generally refers to the long-term consumption of excess food in relation to the energy that an organism expends (or expels via excretion), leading to weight gaining and often obesity. It may be regarded as an eating disorder.

This term may also be used to refer to specific episodes of over-consumption. For example, many people overeat during festivities or while on holiday.

Overeating can sometimes be a symptom of binge eating disorder or bulimia.

Compulsive over eaters depend on food to comfort themselves when they are stressed, suffering bouts of depression, and have feelings of helplessness.

In a broader sense, hyperalimentation includes excessive food administration through other means than eating, e.g. through parenteral nutrition.


Cognitive behavioral therapy, individual therapy, and group therapy are often beneficial in helping people keep track of their eating habits and changing the way they cope with difficult situations.

One organization that helps overeaters is Overeaters Anonymous, which operates a 12-step program. It is quite clear through research, and various studies that overeating causes addictive behaviors.

Ghrelin is called the “Hunger Hormone” and, basically, the more ghrelin you have in your system, the hungrier you are.

So if you find yourself fighting cravings and can’t seem to stay away from the fridge after dinner, it’s probably due to elevated ghrelin levels…

And the hard fact is that ghrelin works directly on the hunger center of your brain by activating the brain’s reward response to highly addictive sweet, fatty foods. This increases your food intake at the worst possible time, usually at night, and ultimately makes you gain more weight.

Even worse, it appears ghrelin makes us fatter whether we eat more or not.

You can see now why losing fat is almost impossible with elevated ghrelin levels.

But here’s something you can start doing TONIGHT to lower your ghrelin levels and feel more satisfied tomorrow...

Get More ZZZ’s

New research makes it clear that even low levels of sleep deprivation increase 
your ghrelin levels and lead to more fat being stored in your body.

Most people need between 6-8 hours of sleep and jacking yourself up in the morning with caffeine or energy drinks is exactly the WRONG thing to do if you want to lose weight, which you’ll see why in just a moment.

But if you thought Ghrelin was bad news for your waistline, YOU need to see what’s been dubbed the “Fat Storage Hormone.”
