How to Stop Overeating

Please understand that behind our overeating in a large number of cases . . . there is a feeling of not being loved, not being admired, not being appreciated. And unconsciously we have . . . a memory of security and food, emotional security and food, love and eating interconnected.   So we immediately go there, and our unconscious mind says, "Ah ha, well, what can I do?"  So our refrigerator is kind of a mother figure.
