Manage Emotional Eating

Water drops 200x140

Nearly everyone eats for emotional reasons once in a while.

But if food is used as a way to cope with emotions¬†on a regular basis, the underlying problem (the cause of the anxiety, sadness, anger, boredom, etc.) ¬†isn’t adequately addressed . . . and so the underlying problem continues, as does the emotional eating (eating for reasons other than physical hunger). The result may be undesired weight gain.

Nutrition counseling can help create awareness around the particular situations, thoughts and feelings that can lead to emotional eating. As a registered dietitian, I work with clients in a coaching role, supporting and guiding clients to uncover emotional eating triggers and to create a plan to help manage eating in a way that leads to better health and wellbeing.
