Are You an Emotional Eater?

Earlier this week, I had a heart-to-heart about my previous issues with emotional eating. And it was amazing to hear about all of your inspiring and honest comments. There’s no doubt that emotional eating is a common issue for us, whether you’re stick-skinny or extra curvy. Tell us though, how often do your emotions—positive or negative—cause you to open the fridge?

    First, thanks for addressing this topic. It is one of the things I had to learn about after I found this blog.

    Let's just say that I know I have a problem so I do what I can to deal with it. Making a direct connection between unhealthy people and what they eat is a real appetite killer for me (at least for what I see them eating).

    But I am not perfect; if something devastating were to happen and I was home alone, I would probably indulge in an unhealthy way (but at least it would be the healthy stuff I keep on hand and not junk food or alcohol.)

    Great post… I think most people are emotional eaters to some degree and I would also say (IMO) that is the main weight problem in the world today.

    Great quiz idea!

    I have gotten better since I've had a nutritionist, who gave me some good pointers on it. She suggested allowing myself to have a bit, but to then put it away and then wait a whole hour. She then told me to make a cup of tea. Nothing before this would allow me to stop eating a whole tube of pringles in one sitting. I think everyone needs to have methods for stopping themselves from eating themselves stupid.
