Three main types of eating disorders.
There are three main types of eating disorders: external eating behavior, emotiogenic eating behavior, restrictive eating behavior.
Emotional type. In this case, food is the best friend, savior and the best psychotherapist. With any surge of excitement and anxiety, anxiety and depression, boredom and apathy, a snack comes to the rescue. It helps to relieve stress, calm down, have fun and encourage yourself. It is necessary to look for the roots of this PP problem in childhood. Growing up, a person becomes dependent on other people’s approval and recognition, tries to be good for everyone. And he lives by other people’s emotions, losing touch with his inner world. To solve this violation of PP, the methods of conscious nutrition and regulation of emotions will help.
External type. Food for the company or simply because of its presence in sight with easy, free access. Moreover, such a person, as a rule, does not experience feelings of physical hunger, his body does not require refueling. He / she eats, because the food looks and smells appetizing, the taste is seductive. Overeating occurs. The reticular (reptilian) part of the brain is partially responsible for this process, as an echo of ancient times, when it was vitally important to eat up for the future.
Diet type. In other words, the presence of a rigid framework. Man, preparing his menu, carefully chooses food, dividing it into healthy and unhealthy, right and wrong, safe and unhealthy. Every effort is made to eat good food and not to look towards the prohibited. Daily assessments of food, attempts to restrain themselves, cause a lot of stress, which gradually accumulates and erupts as the diet is disturbed. This delayed repentance and weight gain makes us resort to an even tougher diet, which leads to another stressful diet.
