The definition of Emotional Eating is different for everyone. It involves different words & feelings. The best way I've found to define it is: Are you regularly violating your values & decisions round food & is it becoming a problem for you?

Emotional Eating is different for everyone.

You may label or call it something different but it’s usually the same problem…

Violating your decisions around food – i.e. breaking promises to yourself over what you said you’d eat because of the uncomfortable feeling you get when you get an urge to eat.

As I said, different people label the feeling in different ways…

It could be:

  • Emotional Eating
  • Cravings
  • Urges
  • Binges
  • Compulsions
  • Uncontrollable eating
  • Mindless eating
  • Boredom eating
  • Food addiction
  • Sad eating
  • Happy eating
  • …or something else entirely.

And the problem isn’t actually a food problem, but a mental wiring problem.

So it’s something you have to solve by re-training your brain rather than what to eat, when to eat and how to eat.
