How to stop emotional eating.
According to Women's Health experts say that some people can turn to food as a way to cope with emotions when they don't know how to express them.
Eating as a way to cope with emotions is dangerous because:
When eating based on your emotions, you're not eating because you're hungry and you won't stop eating because you're full.
To stop feeding your emotions, you need to pay attention to what your body is saying.
Research shows that setting a target number of meals per day reduces the chances of bing eating triggered by feeling stressed out.
Rather than eating because of feelings, write down the feelings and deal with them. Instead of reaching for food, examine what is causing the emotions and find a healthy alternative.
