People today tend to eat far more food than they need to, and they also exercise far too little—leading to obesity.

Overeating and obesity can lead to numerous health issues.

Here are some of the occasions when you might overeat:

  1. Having a buffet.
  2. Attending a business banquet.
  3. Gatherings with friends.
  4. Rushing through a meal while busy at work: When you only have 10 minutes or less to eat a meal, you might overeat.
  5. Skipping a meal or not eating at regular times. You may only have time to properly eat at dinner time, and under this circumstance, you tend to overeat.
