Eating a lot of food has always been associated with dominance and being a “real man.” This is why so many people get a thrill out of watching TV shows such as Man V. Food, or watching eating contests.

We’ve always been facinated by those who can consume a ridiculous amount of calories, however science says it’s not a wise strategy, regardless of the titles you may earn.

When you consume a large amount of calories the body is forced to deal with all of that food, which means that it can’t focus on the more important aspects.

This leads to a whole range of problems that are becoming more and more common. In America, the average man consumes around 3,000 calories per day. Some of the healthiest and longest living men in the world from places such as Hunza Valley, only eat 1500 calories per day and most of them live to 90 and beyond.

Here are the side effects of overeating…

 

  • Fat gain
  • Increased risk of heart disease
  • Diabetes/insulin resistance
  • Body odur
  • Bad breath
  • Metabolic issues
  • Decreased immune system
  • Body aches and pains
  • Depression
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Poor quality of sleep
  • Dizziness
  • Hair loss
  • Acne
  • Mood swings
  • Headaches

 

As we can see overeating leads to a whole range of negative side effects that we could do without in our lives.

In order to battle this issue, exercise can help to burn more calories, but it’s more important for you to lower your calorie intake.

The human body wasn’t designed to eat so much food in such a short space of time. Over thousands of years, we were probabaly able to eat 3 meals a day at most.

Every meal needed to be hunted or gathered, it wasn’t as easy as walking to the refrigerator. In the modern era however, calories are too easy to consume. This has led to temptation and eating even when we’re not hungry, but mainly because we’re either bored, or the occasion would be better if food was included.

It’s a very glutinous way to live, and certainly comes from our primitive brain. As intelligent human beings we need to be aware of this over-consmption and the health implications.

A mature adult should eat as much as their body needs and no more unless it’s with a fitness related bulking goal. Outside of this, eating more than you need is very child like behavior and should be avoided.
