The Hidden Dangers of Overeating: More Than You Might Think

Overeating, a common human tendency, can stem from various reasons such as taste preferences, stress, or habitual behavior. During meals, we physically place food in our mouths and mentally signal to stop eating once full. However, there's a significant delay between the moment our stomach feels full and when our brain registers it, leading us to continue eating for approximately 20 minutes past the point of satiety. By this time, we've unknowingly consumed excess food, only realizing it when our waistbands begin to feel uncomfortably tight.
