In this article, the writer explores overeating and produces a workable list of behavior modification techniques that might apply to a patient who has difficulty controlling food consumption. The writer notes that overeating is a nationwide problem in the US that has been on the rise for several decades. Further, the writer points out that people overeat for many reasons and one of the difficulties in addressing the issue is the fact that humans need to consume food to survive, therefore unlike drug use or drinking it cannot be completely cut out of one's life as a form of behavior modification. The writer concludes that using techniques such as stress management, self monitoring, and social support are behavior modification steps that can be used to help a person reduce the incidence of overeating.
