You know that food has been as coping skill but have you ever wondered what type of situations drive you to eat more – are there certain things that trigger you to turn to the pantry when times get tough?
Emotional eaters come in all shapes and sizes and there is no “one size fits all” approach to dealing with this issue. Gaining awareness into what triggers you to turn to food is very valuable as it paves the way to the road of recovery.
Do you eat your anger? Is your life built around shame and food helps to medicate those feelings? Are you using food to protect you from the fear of failure or even success? Do you lack social connections and food has become your best friend?
