Emotional eating can quickly lead to weight gain.

Eating from an emotional place is a very common thing. And, part of the problem with emotional eating is that it is not usually due just to a lack of self control; instead, a person may be unaware that they’re doing it, may find pleasure in food only, cannot manage difficult feelings, or lets themselves get too hungry or worn down. When this occurs, putting a halt on emotional eating can be challenging. Here are some tips:

Handle Whatever Is Causing You to Be Emotional

Rather than tackling the eating head on, get to the root cause of what is causing you to be emotional in the first place. Why are you feeling so stressed? Try keeping a journal, exercising, meditating, or practicing yoga to combat anxiety.

Remove the Temptation

In addition to tackling stress, you can also combat emotional eating by removing any temptations. For example, clean out your fridge and pantry so in the event that you are super stressed, you don’t have poor food choices to turn to. This goes hand-in-hand with keeping some other, healthier food options close by. Consider fruit, nuts, organic jerky, soda water, or some extra dark dark chocolate.
