Women Who Are Dieting: Let Those Emotions Flow!

Posted Mar 16 2010 4:10am

When we are dieting--as we all know--we are required to use a great deal of self regulation--in other words, self control. But dieting is a special case of self-regulation because you are confronted by food multiple times a day. Because of this, there are many opportunities to blow it. But there are things to do that can help.

It may help you to know that how you handle emotions effects how able you are to regulate your eating while you’re dieting.  It seems that dieters who let their emotions flow freely are far less likely to lose control around food than dieters who suppress their emotions.

There’s a good lesson here. It’s always good to be able to express your feelings, but who knew it was such an important dieting tool?
