What is a pack eater?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
The pack eater is consciously aware of his or her strategy. They might not be too stressed out over the decision to take 3 or 4 cookies because “they eat healthy on a regular basis.” They might also consider it socially obligatory when everyone else is splurging on the sugars. But the advice I would give them is the same advice I’d give all the other secret eaters: find a healthy substitute, enforce limits, and displace emotional turmoil or stress with physical activity such as exercise.
