Signs Divorce Could Be a Good Option
Some say watching the videos help them satisfy their food cravings and keep them from overindulging, but could these videos be a trigger for people with eating disorders?
Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho worries these videos might be glamorizing binge eating disorders, which she notes can be deadly for some. "We all love food, but not in this amount," Dr. Judy says.
Nutritionist Dr. Melina Jampolis agrees and feels the videos are actually trivializing eating disorders. She notes that eating food in this quantity can lead to the triggering of a heart attack, gout, gallbladder problems, and severe acid reflux. "It's very stressful on the body," Dr. Jampolis says.
While it may help some in the short-term to not overeat, The Doctors note the videos could also have the reverse effect and cause some to binge eat days later.
A more effective way to lose weight, according to Dr. Jampolis, includes:
- Having a high fiber diet
- Make a plan ahead of time before you eat out or go to the store
- Exercise routinely
As always, speak with your doctor before starting any diet or having a major change in your exercise habits.
