Sweet drives us up the endorphins and is a small pleasure that sometimes covers those emotional problems.
  • Occasionally, relationship issues come clearly into these processes that we have quoted, there where the anxiety by eating raises us quite a few kilos. There are things that we would like to say to the other person and that we do not dare, there is a clear unhappiness that we do not know very well how to deal with... And instead of doing so, sometimes, we took refuge in food.
  • It can also occur that do not feel well with us, we look in the mirror and we do not like. This creates anxiety, dissatisfaction and, almost without realizing it, we started to nibble. Because that bag of chips helps us to not think, because those candy in the bag come well from time to time, because sometimes, when we can not sleep at night, well come to us stand up and take something from the fridge.
  • There are days when we get home with a lot of stress, with many concerns. We take a bath and he assails immediately, a void in your stomach that only relieves that pie, that jam and that snack... Sometimes anxiety comes into our life unless we realize and eating becomes able to relax everyday Act. It's that easy. At the moment we offer something to our stomach found some satisfaction and some calm.
