Understanding Binge Eating . And ways to control it.

What is Emotional Eating?

Does stress, anger, or sadness drive you to eat? Do you turn to food for comfort, or when you’re bored? Many people do. If you often eat for emotional reasons instead of because you’re physically hungry, that can be a problem.

In heightened emotional states, most of us turn to food for solace. This is an essential human behavioral aspect as we associate celebrations and sadness with consuming foods in their corresponding forms.

“Got a promotion?! Let’s party!”
“Feeling blue? Treat yourself to some chocolate ice cream!”

It is not really about food at all

​Identify Type of Hunger

You and only you can dig deeper into your mind and soul to unravel the true reason for that last night’s extra snack. Being aware and taking notice of patterns are important to get a grip of what’s going on in your mind – whether it is an emotional response or a behavioral habit.

 Habits surrounding certain people and environments

Do you usually meet our friends over drinks or a restaurant? Or attend several social gatherings several times a month? These habits may seem harmless-however, they could be and mostly are, feeding into unknown factors contributing to emotional eating habits.
Take notice and make the necessary changes and sacrifices that will result in you being able to slowly break the habit.

 Work Consistently at Failing Forward

Every time you make the ‘optimal’ choice – the hard one, you will wake up the next day and feel that in the end, it all seems possible. Start stringing such little victories together and you will get stronger to finally break free from emotional eating.

Don’t beat yourself on every slip. You will make mistakes. But remember, don’t let those mistakes throw you off the path to your goal.

Setting Up a Structured Plan

Having an effective and science-based applicable nutrition plan absolutely crucial to staying focused on your goals and continuous improvement.

  1. Take your day and split meals and timings -example, Breakfast, Lunch, Snack and Dinner.
  2. Stick to this plan for at least 3-4 days.
  3. Focus on 3 things – Hunger Levels, Energy Levels and Digestion
  4. Adjust timings and recipes according to your findings.

Adherence is extremely important with improving your relationship with food. Don’t just focus on scale numbers and calories. The focus here is on the behaviors and habits that resulted in obesity and poor health.
