The Truth About Emotional Eating

It happens with most of us.
You have a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day… and at the end of it you turn to food.
There’s a reason that it’s called comfort food. While you’re eating it you feel better.
The problem is – when you’re done eating it you actually feel worse.
It’s a escape, a temporary indulgence that feels great for the few minutes you’re eating, then you’re back to where you before.
Obviously that’s a poor long-term solution, so what can you do about it? Two things:
  • Solve the actual problem. If it was a conflict at work, call the person and apologize. If you were slammed with meetings all day and didn’t get half of what you wanted to get done, sit down for 20 minutes and get at least part of it out of the way. You’ll feel a hell of a lot better after.
  • Find another comforting habit. It could be playing an instrument, video games, reading a book, meditation, or training your ass off with an awesome PT (I know just the guy…). The point is to de-stress. Without gaining kilos.
I can help you out fixing not only this habit, but ALL of your unhealthy habits that are holding you back from feeling good, looking fantastic, and generally having a healthy and happy life.
