Stress can drive many of us to engage in disordered eating, whether emotional eating, overeating, binge eating, or other related patterns.
“Stress eating” is a natural phenomenon rooted in both our psychology and biology. Bringing compassion and self-understanding to ourselves is the first step in changing this unwanted pattern.
There are biological reasons why we feel good after eating. Turning to food in times of stress isn’t inherently “wrong” or “bad.”
The first step to transforming emotional eating is through awareness. Because only once you become aware of something, can you change it.
Forgiving oneself for one’s perceived failures and shortcomings is another key towards choosing life and initiating effective weight loss.
Marc David’s twin areas of expertise in nutrition and psychology has helped numerous people overcome challenges with food and emotional eating. Watch this episode of the Psychology of Eating podcasts to hear Deborah’s story!
