Triggers that sabotage weight-loss efforts: Situational triggers
By Annette Radvansky
A trigger is any person, place, thing, food — or situation — that has a tendency to cause one to overeat. When dieters think of triggers, they typically think of a specific type of food. It's true: Some foods are triggers for these individuals. And for many, sugar and white flour are substance triggers. But there are other kinds of triggers that are much more insidious. When the impulse to indulge stems directly from a situation in one's life that occurs periodically, this is considered a situational trigger.
