Sometimes there are just going to be topics where I’m just not your best expert…
…and because I’ve been getting so many questions about “how to control binge eating” and “how can I stop eating too much at night”, I went to emotional eating expert, Steph Rice, for help.
Here are 3 of the most important steps you can take to STOP Emotional Eating
1. Use a Distraction to Avoid the Wrong Action
When you feel stressed, anguished or worried, the best course of action is to cause a distraction.
Take a walk, call a friend, sing, stretch, play with your kids, or even dance! Do anything you can to form positive habits and stop allowing your emotions to control what you eat.
2. Create a Life Checklist
When life gets hectic, food is often the one thing you can’t stay away from. So to fight its power, you’ll make a “life check list”.
Write down each area in your life (home, career, love) and score it from 1 to 10 (1 = poor 10 = great).
Beside each score write down an action you can take to improve the score and situation around this area of your life. By improving other aspects of your life, you will stop making food your support system.
3. Stop Self Sabotage
Self-sabotage is far too common for emotional eaters. And by sabotage, I mean negative self-talk.
To overcome this destructive habit you must develop positive self-talk habits.
“I don’t need a cake to make myself feel good.”
“I am in control.”
“I can choose to eat foods that will help my body and not hurt it.”
