Emotional eating, let's break this down:
Strong emotions, either good or bad, are almost always directly connected to emotional eating, eating disorders, unhealthy eating habits, which often results in being overweight. These include eating too much, eating when emotions are high or when stressful situations happen, or even the opposite, not eating or not eating enough. All these things are directly connected to problems maintaining a healthy weight. So the main cause, or root, of stress eating and emotional eating usually goes back to some type of emotional wound (or any situation that caused an emotional response), somewhere in a person's past.
I’m going to break down exactly what emotional eating is and how it gets started in someone's life, and then share the method I use with my students that is helping them end stress eating and emotional eating for good. In order to address the unwanted behavior, we must first identify “the root,” or the place where the problem started.
*What did it come from? How does it affect us? What can we DO about it?*
