We all know we're supposed to eat healthy portions, but often times we don't. A lack of willpower isn't always to blame. Here are a couple of reasons experts say why we eat too much.
Not getting enough sleep affects two important hormones. It decreases the hormone that signals your brain that your body has had enough to eat and it increases the hormone that triggers hunger. Studies show that people who are sleep deprived have a 25% increase in appetite.
Constant stress is another trigger for overeating. Your body pumps out high doses of hormones that can increase your appetite and lead you to overeat.
