Q: I end up overeating because it makes me feel better and I never really get full. I'd like to lose weight but this makes it hard. Any suggestions?

A: Being persistently hungry can cause big trouble. So can overeating for comfort/pleasure.

They both can, however, end up fueling poor nutritional choices and obesity.

The hormone's signal to your hypothalamus is dampened, and you keep eating.
