I’ve never seen emotional eating occur in a healthy form. Nobody counts calories or watches what they eat when they’re eating emotionally, but rather they eat whatever they perceive will make them feel better.
You may have noticed that you only tend to indulge in emotional eating when you’re stressed, sad, or angry, and this is why emotional eating leads to weight gain. Typically, the foods consumed when you’re eating out of sadness or stress aren’t great for you. But, are instead sugary or high calorie foods that will make you feel happy and at ease.
In addition to the poor nutrition of the food, you’ll also tend to overeat when you are emotional. You’re not worried about whether or not you’re full, but instead you just want to eat for the sake of stuffing your feelings, which means you’re going to go overboard.
Not only will you be eating something like fast food or high sugar containing food, you’ll be eating a lot of it. This can lead to rapid weight gain and many other negative health effects. By stuffing yourself with food, you may think you are silencing your emotions.
Temporarily you’re less focused on other things. This drowns out negative emotions for a short time, but they’ll come back to bite you, and eventually even the overeating won’t be much of a solace. Instead, the overeating will make you feel sick as you watch your own health decline. On one hand, you have the original issue to contend with, and on the other hand you have health problems caused by emotional eating. You need a real comprehensive solution that will actually break this vicious cycle. I know the cravings may seem to be out of control.
