    Good fat is fine

    Overeating is of no good. Even good fat has loads of calories. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats help reduce cholesterol levels and lower the risk of heart diseases and stroke, but they still are as fattening as bad fats. Unless you burn more calories than what you consume, you're most likely to gain weight.

    Blame it on PMS

    It’s the bliss fix when your body yearns for potato chips and cookies when going through premenstrual syndrome (PMS). PMS registers low Serotonin, a hormone that regulates mood and weight and to fix this the body craves for starchy foods. It should not, however, be your reason to overeat and expand your waistline.

    Popcorn is Cool

    Water will undo It

    When you eat, your body breaks down the food and shuttles the nutrients off to your cells for energy or stores them. Drinking too much water can help you clear out all the toxins. Regrettably, if you have overeaten, even drinking gallons of water won't compensate for it.
