You just lost your job. Or broke up with your lover. Or it’s the end of the month and you’re broke. Again.
No matter what challenges in life you’re going through, there’s probably been a few times that you’ve reached for the pint of ice cream to ease the emotional pain. Or the one pound chocolate bar. Or the extra large bag of barbeque potato chips. OR ALL THREE.
I’ve been there myself. I have been put through the ringer by life more times than I can count. For me, it’s usually relationship issues that trigger my emotional eating reflexes. And next thing I know, I’m clearing out the grocery store of Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Bars.
In all seriousness, emotional eating can be one of the most challenging hurdles to overcome when you’re trying your best to have a healthy, nourishing relationship with food. I struggled for years with emotional eating until I became more self-aware of the triggers that caused me to do it. Once I learned WHY I was emotionally eating, I was able to curb my behavior and get clear about what I truly needed in those moments.
In my new YouTube vlog, I share my most effective strategies and personal tips with you about how you can stop emotional eating and start making more supportive food choices (especially in the really tough, distressing moments). Click the video below to watch now:
By shifting your food choices to healthier options for snack time, becoming aware of your emotional trigger points and practicing giving yourself what you truly need on an emotional and physical level – you’ll start to change your behavior and your relationship to food.
Because Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate tastes a LOT better when you’re not devouring them like a distraught wolverine floating in a river of tears. Trust me on this one.
