Ever wondered why we feel so hungry when we are bored?
So why do people eat because of boredom?
The results of this study showed that “boredom predicted calorie, fat, sugar, and protein consumption.” Therefore, it can be said that boredom leads to unhealthy eating.
This can also be called emotional eating or mindless eating.
Emotional Hunger vs. True Hunger
True hunger on the other hand, starts gradually, any type of food will satisfy hunger, you will have the will power to stop once you are satisfied, and you will not feel guilty afterwards. The main difference between these two types is that with emotional hunger, one does not have the will power to stop and will continue eating until they feel so guilty about themselves as opposed to true hunger where people know when to stop because they are full.

“Health and Wellness in Isolation”.
