Overeating and obesity can lead to numerous health issues.

Here are some of the occasions when you might overeat:

  1. Having a buffet.
  2. Attending a business banquet.
  3. Gatherings with friends.
  4. Rushing through a meal while busy at work: When you only have 10 minutes or less to eat a meal, you might overeat.
  5. Skipping a meal or not eating at regular times. You may only have time to properly eat at dinner time, and under this circumstance, you tend to overeat.
