Anger, anxiety, boredom, insecurity, sadness, unworthiness, basically any uncomfortable emotion. My family triggers a rigorous phantom hunger, and also my ADHD-when I don't have enough going on I will eat. Stress. Stress is actually a big one.
"There are two categories of things that trigger phantom hunger. The first includes situations, places or events. Perhaps you overeat when you have to attend staff meetings at your pathetic job, or when you go to family functions. For some people it's funerals or restaurants or sports events. For others, it's a boring day at work. The second category that triggers phantom hunger includes people. For you, it's probably a specific person- your boss, parent, spouse or child-who triggers you to overeat. They may trigger you with a glance, a word, or even with their silence., but whatever it is, when you're around them, you're sure to overeat". Let's chat about WHAT TRIGGERS YOU?
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." (NIV)
