“Are You An Emotional Eater?”

Recognizing your emotional state can help you reduce calories. For a long time I had been what a lot of people called an “emotional eater”. The quality and quantity of what I ate depended strongly on how I felt on the inside. So now before I start eating I ask myself a few questions like:

  • Am I really hungry?
  • Am I eating because I am stressed out or nervous?
  • Is this food healthy?
  • What else can I do instead of eating to feel better?

Asking these questions help me realize that often what I am really craving is just a walk in the park to help me relax and make better choices.
