Are you afraid of hunger and not throwing away food? You may have an eating disorder.

In addition to bulimia and anorexia, there is a more common eating disorder. The blockade syndrome is less dangerous, but it can seriously damage your health and lead to irreparable consequences, said Home Hearth Nata Gonchar, a nutritionist and president of the Association of Detox Coaches.

Signs of blockade syndrome are found in 90% of us. Check if you find yourself in at least one of the items.

  • You always order more food than you can eat.
  • The euphoria at the sight of a buffet rolls on you, and you recruit a lot more than your standard portion.
  • Regularly or only in the ICP, you are covered with periods of Jora.
  • You often overeat at night.
  • You can call your appetite unhealthy.
  • You can not leave the food on the plate - you eat up after all: boyfriend, children, friends.
  • Food for you is an object of worship, your main friend and comforter.
  • The holiday is always associated with a feast.
  • You are afraid of hunger and trying to eat for the future.
  • You have a panic in the "open area" if there is no certainty that there is a place where you can eat next time.
  • You always plan your meals in advance.
  • You have a pathological fear of throwing out food (this is one of the main signs of blockade syndrome).

Causes of Blockade Syndrome and 9 Hunger Types

According to psychologists, the cause of this disorder is often a special psychological stock. Someone with a hungry fate, starvation stress in infancy, in childhood, or even closely accepted facts about starvation from movies and TV shows could affect the formation of the disease.

Hunger in personal or family history - the main factor in the development of blockade syndrome! Attitudes towards it directly affect our nutritional decisions. From practice I know 9 types of hunger, and only one of them is real, the rest are illusions.

Water hunger. An insatiable desire to eat often can be a hidden desire to drink water! Nature laid down in us a complex thirst warning mechanism, and we very often confuse the causes.

Hunger-comforter. During the period of recovery from stress, the body tries to "take everything from life." One can never eat out of a sense of longing, loneliness, regret.

Hunger hunter. Provides diversity, saves when “boring in the mouth.” A simple test with broccoli will quickly reveal the illusion. Before eating, imagine broccoli (or any other dish without decorations). If the desire to eat is not lost, then you are really hungry.

Hunger rescuer. The desire for frequent snacking can be a defensive reaction of the body, shouting to us that the metabolism has lost flexibility! A sharp decrease in blood sugar is deadly for the body! If the body has lost the ability to easily move from the expenditure of glucose on burning fat, the body tries to save us by wanting to eat carbohydrate often and carbohydrate.

Cellular hunger. The paradox of modernity: crowded supermarket shelves - and at the same time total hunger! The global lack of macro and microelements leads to hypercaloration and the absolute nutritive emptiness of our food. We easily cease to overeat (especially sugar), simply qualitatively replenishing trace elements.

Hormonal hunger. The abundance of carbohydrate foods, too frequent snacks, mineral deficiency, disturbed circadian rhythms often lead to a breakdown of the hormones that regulate food and metabolism. In particular, the hormone leptin, which tells our body: "I am full." A simple laboratory test will easily detect leptin resistance and identify early harbingers of future problems with insulin!

Energy hunger. What is needed when there is not enough energy? Check the liver and thyroid! Cellular energy stations-mitochondria - with might and main work on the trace elements, so they need to be replenished.

Hunger receptor. The elder brother of the hunger entertainer. Causes to overeat, because simple food becomes tasteless for taste buds corrupted by sugar and glutamate.

Real food hunger - the first and only hunger, necessary and sufficient for meals.

In conclusion, I want to say that almost all types of hunger (except, of course, the latter) are somehow connected with the suppression of our desires and, as a result, the failure of communication between the body and the head.
