Why we eat?

We’ll try to explore each reason in depth so that you can learn more about why you’ve formed certain eating habits and how you can choose healthier options.
We eat a lot of food. A typical human eats over a thousand pounds of food every year.

The first reason is our body needs a fuel
Just like a car needs gasoline, your body needs fuel so that your muscles can move and your brain can think. If the things we eat are not nutritious, then they aren’t really foods. Stop eating what does not benefit us and eat only those foods that are of benefit. As most of us already know, it is not so easy to do. Why? The next reasons will explain it.

The second reason we eat is for taste
We, often, eat whatever we like the taste and don’t care about their advantages and disadvantages. Event sometimes we know they are not healthy food.
If you continued to eat a type of food, you purposely developed a liking for it.
Tastes are remembered. A taste can make such a strong feeling that we may overeat attempting to find satisfaction from a certain taste preference or combination.

A third reason we eat is a variety of environment influences
Television screen and magazine pages constantly tell you that you can feel better if you eat this instead of that, wear these clothes, and drink this beverage. Food industry influences what and why we eat and therefore influences our health.
We loves a party. It’s going to be tempting to eat too much during the party even if you no longer hungry.

A fourth reason you may eat is that you are thirsty instead of hungry
Many people mistake thirst for water as hunger, so make sure you are really hungry before you eat. Try drinking a glass of water and see if that helps.

The bottom lines
  • Unless a person is careful, it is really easy to take in too much fuel. Our bodies store all the excess fuel as fat, and you become obese.
  • Attempting to find satisfaction from a certain taste can lead you to overeat, and you become obese.
  • Eating unhealthy food just because -- as seen on TV – can damages your health. If the food is fatty foods or contain too much calories then your body needs, you become obese.
  • If you continuously eat in -- thirst state – you may overeat, and you become obese.

I eat because I am hungry. :)
That's my simple reason. But sometimes, because I just want to.
