Verified

The factors which might account for overeating at holiday dinners, such as Thanksgiving can be the place, time of eating and the food itself. The looks, smell and taste of the food might make us overeat. If we see other people eating at the table, we might eat more then we need just because they are still eating. Maybe we are just bored at the table so we eat or the questions our family members ask make us feel stressed so we eat. We may not be hungry anymore, but continue eating because it is the occasion and our mum worked so hard to cook the Thanksgiving dinner. These factors are called the $\textit{psychosocial hunger factors}$.
