Stop Emotional Eating Before It Starts


Leave a Comment Return to Article
  • Emotional eating is the one thing I don't really plan for. I plan my meals, my grocery list, my snacks but then am caught flat footed because I bump up against the urge to eat to deal with an unpleasant emotion. Last night I heard myself say," I am not hungry. " But I was upset, I wanted the feelings to change. So I ate. I need to practice other behaviors when wanting to eat when I am not hungry. - 7/30/2013 7:00:32 AM

  • Great article, with lots of practical ideas. I find the most efficient way to handle a situation that is stressing me out is to think about what I can DO. If there's nothing I can do, then it's just worrying and that's pointless. Of course I'm not terrific about this, but I see so many people who make no effort to take action--instead they will talk and talk about problems as if they actually enjoy complaining and worrying about life situations. I try to go straight to What can I do? If nothing, or nothing at least for right now, I try to let it go. It helps me to keep in mind that my grandmother always said worrying is sacrilegious. I try to have faith that I just have to do my personal best, and God will take care of the rest. - 6/27/2013 7:48:13 AM
    This is an excellent article that has me buzzing with possibilities!

    I am learning many lessons here on my journey to eating healthy. I suddenly realize how important it is for me to "cultivate", to "fashion" my life in such a way that I feel good about myself.

    A new attitude for me is to look at the ongoing problem I encounter and to think about doing a 'reality check' that will point me in the right direction.

    This article enables me to have tools and discover insights that enhance a positive lifestyle change.

    So, what is the one thing I'll remember for a successful weight loss for myself? It is as the article says, that I will be able to manage difficult situations and feelings effective.
