I thought you ment how stress and other psycological issues can affect your physical health also weight gain or loss. This actually sounds a lot like a course I was on when working in kindergarten. Basically the theory was we are born with the instict but we learn to eat by set times and not listen to our bodies, so we loose touch with those feelings and hints the body gives us, But we could learn to listen again. it was very interesting, is that what you mean? I wonder if I still have papers from that course anywhere hm... Oh yes! That's what they do as well! It covers a lot of ground and they do show why we tend to overeat using science and psychology. It's been super interesting! I did see a study that showed how infants are able to regulate their calories. When fed a bottle with more calorie dense foods, they stopped eating sooner. They instinctively knew when to stop and had the same caloric intake as the baby drinking the regular bottle!
