What is Emotional Eating?
Emotional eating (or stress eating) is using food to make yourself feel better—eating to satisfy emotional needs, rather than to satisfy physical hunger. The actual difference between, using food as a reward and emotional eating, is when eating is your primary emotional coping mechanism. Emotional hunger can’t be filled with food. Eating may feel good in the moment, but the feelings that triggered the eating are still there. And you often feel worse than you did before because of the unnecessary calories you’ve just consumed.
This workshop will give you:
-An understanding on emotional eating
-Red flags: how to spot you are an emotional eater
