290: How To Stop Emotional Eating

Update: 2022-05-314


I have been an emotional eater for as long as I can remember. I grew up with food sort of being the only comfort in a tumultuous family, in a family with a lot of pain and anger and trauma around it, a place where I felt very unsafe at times. Food was my friend; food was a celebration. If something was good, if there was a holiday if I did something in school, we celebrated with food. Food was also there if I was having a hard time or a bad day or I felt scared or alone or angry, I learned to stuff it down with Oreos or chips or fries or everything that was in the refrigerator.

And I learned to basically treat every big emotion with food. And that's what I want to talk about today. And I want to talk about emotional eating. And I want to talk about binge eating and the cycle that that has played in my life because I know many of you will understand and can identify with that. And I want to talk about it today because as I have learned something in the last six months that has totally changed my relationship with food and therefore my life.
