Vanessa Rivera – Live Video Chat On Letting Go Of Emotional Eating
Honestly, we all know the basics of what is and what isn’t healthy to eat, so the question is really why do we still put that pizza or that cookie into our body??
Emotional eating isn’t just limited to reaching for a tub of ice-cream when you get sad. For many people, it’s happening constantly – when I get stressed, I reach for chocolate. When you get angry, you might get a drink. When you get frustrated by your co-workers, you might go get a slice of cake.
Emotional eating is eating that is not done out of choice – it is done out of a habit triggered by an emotion we feel, and we eat the food in the hopes that it will fill a void inside us.
This is an issues that affects many of us and derails any healthy diet (Paleo or otherwise) we might be on or considering! That’s why Vanessa and I decided to do this live video chat to discuss how we can all overcome emotional eating.
