Stop Emotional Eating! Wouldn’t You Like to Know How?
Posted Sep 19 2012 5:00am
Every woman knows about emotional eating. No woman escapes
to a place where emotional eating isn’t part of her life. But not every woman
who eats for emotional reasons ends up with a weight problem. Not every woman
who eats away her hurt, her anger, her worries, seriously limits her ability to
cope with her feelings in more adaptive ways. Emotional eating is a problem for
you when it causes problems for you.
If you are an emotional eater with a weight problem, here is
where using psychology to lose weight can help. Don’t just turn to dieting and
exercise. They won’t help you stop emotional eating. To end emotional eating
you will have to directly address your emotional eating. This means making
personal changes. The biggest change, of course, will be dealing with your
feelings instead of eating over them.
How can you start to contend with feelings that you haven’t
wanted to feel or even know were there? It’s best if you have a guide that will
help you develop what it takes, gives you examples and encouragement, and sticks
with you every step of the way.
For your guide on
how to stop emotional eating, you can read lots of blog posts at

series Weight Loss Books for Women — Using Psychology to Lose Weight.
