Emotional eating occurs when we turn to food for comfort. Often times we indulge in overeating to avoid painful emotions such as guilt, shame, sadness, anger, depression, and frustration (among others). The union between food and emotions can be described as a love-hate relationship. We go from “yes food, I love you, you make me feel so much better” to, “I hate you, look what you’ve done to me!”
Breaking the pattern of emotional eating can prove to be difficult without help. It is a behavior that we think is out of our control. When we feel emotionally fragile, it is easy to fall back into the awaiting open arms of food. It does not judge us, it is always there to provide comfort and welcome us back. Food makes us feel happy until the love-hate cycle repeats itself once again.
If this sounds familiar you may be an emotional eater. Know that you are not alone and that help is available. We at Total Health Guidance are committed to your emotional and physical well-being. This is why we have created an emotional eating group in which we will explore the different forms of emotional eating and discover how to break free from this behavior. We will have weekly guest speakers addressing a variety of interesting and relevant topics including: tips on healthy nutrition, the biology of why we crave the food we eat, how to make small changes that create amazing results, and much more.
The group will be led by Catherine Caba who will teach you simple, fun, and effective processes that will help you along this wonderful journey. This virtual group will be held on Mondays from 12:00– 1:00 PM via Zoom. Please call our office to enroll (321) 332-6984. We look forward to meeting you!
