 Toxic People & Emotional Eating – How to Cope [Episode 28] | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 12:23

What is at the heart of emotional eating? How did I gain 100 lbs.? Simple. I wouldn’t admit it to myself at the time but emotional overeating not only led to weight gain but to Type II diabetes. It was a mess. At the time of this episode, I lost 25 lbs. so I still have 75 more to go. In terms of technology, we have it good these days. I can log on to a language website and have a conversation with a Spanish instructor from Ecuador. I can connect to past classmates on Facebook. I can walk into a Sam’s Club and walk out with the latest flat-screen TV. Food is also more accessible now and I can walk out of a grocery store with enough food to last me a week or two. However, this easy access to food has a sinister side to it. Once upon a time, people had to grow their food before they could eat it. Therefore, food was more a necessity than a luxury. They didn’t have weekly social gatherings with refreshments. They ate only when they were hungry. Now, it’s no longer about eating because we were hungry. We eat simply because there is food stored in our house. We eat when we’re bored, when people visit, when we watch TV, when we entertain visitors, or whenever we feel like it. Well, this is where all that weight gain came from. Food was too easy for me to come by. I ate when I was lonely, depressed, and angry. Given my situation at the time, that was almost every day. So, today we explore 4 tips for overcoming emotional eating Subscribe, Rate, and Review
