Everyone loves eating! After all, eating releases endorphins into our bloodstream, which makes us feel happier.
This is why eating is addictive: it can temporarily satisfy us when we feel alone or in need.
When we’re addicted to food, we can gain weight. Our bodies can begin to store calories that we can’t burn off. We can start to feel ashamed, then eat more to feel better, then lose our ability to workout.
If we’re not careful, the cycle continues and we stay unhealthy.
