I have a habit of eating too much of food. Whenever I start to eat any meal I don't think of quantity and I eat till I finish the plate even if I am full. I feel like I am eating mindlessly or sometimes I feel I have the stamina to eat more. Is there any effective treatment approach?

    I feel like this should be asked at Psychology.SE... – Narusan Jul 14 '17 at 14:44

    We are not quite there yet, i.e., a proposed Psychology.SE is in the Definition stage. We need 30 more questions with a score of 10 to move to the Commitment phase. If you (anyone reading this) want to help, read Someone proposed a great site. How do I get involved? and visit the Psychology page to give an upvote to five questions! – Mark D Worthen PsyD Jul 16 '17 at 2:36

    Consider rephrasing your question to something like, "Which treatment approaches for compulsive overeating are most effective?" – Mark D Worthen PsyD Jul 16 '17 at 2:42
  • I suggest rephrasing the question since, "If your question is requesting personal medical advice, it is off-topic and instead should be directed to your personal physician." ==> See: What topics can I ask about here? in the Help Center. – Mark D Worthen PsyD Jul 16 '17 at 2:45

    @Carey Gregory - Well, good golly Miss Molly! Right you are. Yes, thank you for the edit! And Javed Ahmed - see above for the thank you meant for you. ;O) – Mark D Worthen PsyD Jul 20 '17 at 4:35
