Does your mind travel to that tub of ice cream in the freezer after a stressful day at work or do you binge on buffet treats when you are at a party where you don’t know anyone? Or maybe you’ve had a tough day with the kids and you grab the chips and dip as soon as they are in bed?
Why is there such a thing as emotional eating?!
We go through many emotions during the day, and a lot of them are not positive. When we feel nervous, frustrated, angry, overwhelmed or stressed, we reach for food to soothe an emotional craving, which we confuse with the feeling of physical hunger. And if the wheels come off over the weekend because you want to reward yourself after a tough week, you can add quite a few pounds to your weight without noticing before it’s too late.
Tips on curbing an emotional eating attack:
Some good advice is to try and keep a food journal, or if you don’t have the time, there are many calorie tracker apps you can download to your smartphone. This method has been found to be very successful in those who want to improve on healthy eating habits and drop a few pounds. Seeing and keeping mindful of what you have consumed during the day has a psychological influence on your emotions, and those who take part, consume fewer calories.
Another way to skip the emotional eating binge is to rather reward yourself with something that will make you feel good without logging on the calories. Go for a pedicure, buy your favorite magazine, take a walk where you can enjoy beautiful views, or better yet, give yourself a cupping massage!
(PS: Cupping your neck increases blood flow to the brain which directly influences your happy hormone production)
One of our subscribers suggests hanging a tight fitting piece of clothing in your room where you can see it or put a picture of yourself at 5kg less on the fridge for motivation.
