All great reasons why we eat! I have been victim to a few of those especially before Spark! Spark has made me so aware of what is going on with me that I very seldom do them now days. If I have a trigger food I have to be very aware of what I put into my mouth! Report
Lots of good information. Thank you! Report

I have to eat by the clock, too. That way I never get too hungry. A clock is another tool, like scales and measuring cups. Report
I am new to this site, as we are on a walking challenge "thing" for work. I can relate to some of the things in the article, but mostly I eat because I am simply hungry 24/7. I ate a donut on my way to work (#dontjudgeme) and now I am already thinking about what to have next. I never feel full and I hate it. Surprisingly I am not a giant person but think that it could slowly be happening. Lol I did find a trainer and so far am working out once a week. It's just so hard to not eat as I truly adore food.

For me, I have to eat when the clock tells me to; else I won't eat at all. I suffer from severe appetite loss and have been that way my entire life. I would eat once or twice a day; some days I would forget to eat at all because I never got hungry! It wasn't until a doctor asked me how I eat that I realized how bad it was and that there WAS something to all those "starvation mode" comments people would make. I was instructed to eat SOMEthing every 2-3 hours, even if it's just a spoonful of yogurt or half of a cheese stick. And, honestly, sometimes that's all I can do, as eating when I'm not hungry can make me really nauseous. Since I've been eating every 2-3 hours, I've lost 64 pounds. Report
Yes, and the real truth is, even knowing all of these things, we STILL will do it!!! Knowing does not equal doing, all we can hope for is to try to control it for awhile. It's because we are human!!! It's part of the human condition. And the other part of the equation is people who make money jerking us around. Report
Only responding to real hunger cues is hard and requires intent and practice. Report
I'm not hungry
I don't enjoy it
It's just there.
