Overeating and eating when you are not hungry is often tied to wheat. Modern hybridized wheat, whole or white, contains opiate-like substances. This is why manufacturers put wheat in most packaged products: to get you to eat more of them.
When I hit menopuse I put on a little weight and fought to keep it off with lots of exercise. But could never budge that last few pounds. Then I read "Wheat Belly. Now I follow a low carb, wheat-free, high fat way of eating. I do get cravings now and then, but I am rarely extremely hungry, nor do I over-eat because my food is nutrient-dense and satisfies me.
My mother, always slim and fit, taught me early on never to eat more than I could eat a sall steak tartare after. So I by habit I eat small portions.
