What is emotional eating?
Emotional eating is when you use food as a way to cope with feelings. It is a way to soothe, comfort, or numb yourself when feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or stressed. It is often used as a distraction from the painful emotions that we don’t want to feel. This can lead to overeating, binge eating, or a cycle of yo-yo dieting. Emotional eating can also become an addiction, as food can become a substitute for other forms of pleasure or an escape from uncomfortable emotions.

Oftentimes, emotional eating is a result of deeper issues such as low self-esteem or unresolved trauma. It can also be linked to depression, anxiety, or stress. Unhealthy relationships, such as those with food or people, can also be a cause. It is important to get to the root of the issue in order to find a lasting solution.
