Women who struggle with emotional eating and uncontrollable food cravings typically are in the habit of not eating breakfast. Many say they don't like breakfast or aren't hungry in the morning.
Sometimes you do seem to feel better without breakfast. That's because when you don't eat for eight or ten hours, your body thinks you are moving towards starvation mode and releases beta-endorphins to protect you from the pain of it. Beta-endorphins have a euphoric and confidence-building effect, but it’s only temporary. In the moment, not eating breakfast makes you feel strong and lean. But the beta-endorphins mask dropping blood sugar levels, and soon you crash. Your body responds with a strong craving and you are likely to eat anything.
In addition, stress hormones kick in when you have gone too long without nourishment. The hormones released during stress include adrenaline, which gives instant energy and decreases appetite at first, yet the effects don't last long either.
