What do our food habits talk about us
In ancient times, Hippocrates said that "we are what we eat". Now we can add his thought: by the way that the person eats, you can learn a lot about its food habits, and about him.
The type of personality, that is, a set of unique characteristics and qualities, gets at birth, and little is capable of changing it. Another thing is separate features that are acquired. And there is one way or another we are completely learning from the closest.
"For relations with food, it is always worth something more, namely how a person interacts with the world, with others, with himself, – says Psychologist Tatyana Passyheva. – It is formed in childhood, in the family in which we grow. And we are not so much about family traditions related to meal, so much about what kind of relations were in the family, in what values and rules a family system was built ".
As a family relationship affect our food habits
According to a psychologist, in families, where it is not customary to express their feelings, where there is no mental intimacy, where the child does not receive confirmation of love and adoption, the person experiencing permanent emotional hunger grows. This hunger he replaces the physical. Such people love to eat diverse not because they make the taste of food, but because they are bored: food becomes a way to get missing emotions.
Another example is children who are rarely praised, even if they have achievements like a gold medal. To go to bed in time, to do lessons well, carefully fold things – these rules have been transferred to the table over the years. So, the food becomes award for a heavy working day, and on the tablecloth should always be grained to glitter glasses, beautiful devices. In general, order in everything, supported by the desire to be superman, because only then it can be noticed and praise.
"For the characteristics of a person, all components behavior are important and indicative, at least somehow related to food, and especially with how he makes his choice, – Tatyana Passageva notes. – the overeating person is often difficult to make a decision that he will eat. He does not particularly understand what he loves what he wants, and in the store can walk with the shelf to the shelf.
This is because the person is used to please and sacrifice its desires in favor of others. Such behavior may be connected with the family system in which he was brought up. If the child has never asked what he wants, and the main installation sounded like "eat, what they give, and not a capricious, then he just does not know how to hear and understand himself".
