NBC Today: Emotional Eating is when you eat in response to feelings rather than hunger, usually as a way to suppress or relieve negative emotions. Stress, anxiety, sadness, boredom, anger, loneliness, relationship problems and poor self-esteem can all trigger emotional eating. 75% of all overeating is emotional eating.
NBC Today suggests:
- Learn to recognize your hunger
- Find alternatives to eating
- Keep a food journal
- Three-food interference (eat three healthy foods before starting on comfort foods)
- Exercise regularly
- Get enough sleep
And if you have read any of my posts, you know that I will add in hypnosis. With self-hypnosis you can take a moment to get out of the negative trance of the emotion and create a new trance that supports what you want. Watch the video and use hypnotherapy.
