Do You Sometimes Feel Powerless Against Food

Published on 10/26/2012

Food, like any other substance in our lives, can have a deep effect on your emotions and behaviors. Just like drugs, if we are not careful, food can take control of us if we let it. Now am I saying food is BAD? Not at all.. Certain Foods Can Trigger Emotions What I am saying is sometimes it can make us feel powerless. Have you ever gone to the grocery store trying your hardest to avoid the ice cream isle, but you found yourself indulging in an entire gallon once you got home? Or how about the time you were checking out at Walmart only to notice a pack of M&M’s starting you right in the face. Instead of calling these incidents temptations, I want to use a more health related term called “triggers.” How to Break Past Triggers Triggers are basically pathways in your central nervous system that have not taken a detour yet. In other words, triggers will bring up emotions, memories, and past experiences that were either depressing or joyful. When this happens, most people associate what they feel with food in order to create an emotional response that will initiate the release of a neurotransmitter called Dopamine. This particular substance in the brain is triggered when positive reward and/or a feeling of satisfaction is needed. Thus food usually stimulates this substance for a moment. The reason it’s hard to put the fork down is due to this particular hormone. So, now that you know why you feel powerless at time, I am going to give you a technique that will help you make that detour in your brain. Are you ready for it… Here it is—>>> Start writing each and every time you give into your trigger spots. This will help you become more aware of what you are doing, so that you can start to make an easy transition in your neural pathway. Please keep me posted on your progress. Leave me a comment about what you think. Take care, Ontarian
