When food is eaten too little or excessive, our health and appearance may be changed, which can create negative feelings towards food. By learning how to make better choices, we may be able to control compulsive eating, excessive cravings or over-feeding, and weight gain. In addition to a better appetite control, we may also experience feelings of calm, high levels of energy or and alertness, from the food we eat.
