It’s not just what you eat but rather the way you eat that will lead you to living a healthier lifestyle. Determining your eating personality may be a winning factor in the battle against the bulge.
Researchers in Britain report that there are seven types of over-eaters. A whopping 69 percent of the 500 women surveyed classify themselves as Rushers.
Types of eaters:
Rushers make bad eating choices because they don’t have time to prepare proper meals;
Pickers snack between meals;
Bingers starve themselves all week and then eat a huge amount all at once;
Settlers put on weight during relationships by eating the same sized portions as their partners;
Rewarders use food to reward themselves for good deeds or getting through a tough situation;
Socialisers use getting together with friends and family to eat more and drink more than they normally would;
Comforters turn to food when they’re feeling stressed, sad, or disappointed.
I’m a combo of sorts. I’m part Binger, part Rewarder, part Socializer, and part Comforter. What type of eater are you?
