Emotional Eating – Breaking the Habit
It’s really important that we pay just a little attention to our eating habits especially when we go through stressful periods in our lives or just trip and end up eating more than we should on a regular basis.
The mistakes we make with our eating are very normal, even the most healthy people I know still manage to go a little overboard from time to time and sometimes it is even unconscious.
So how we do take control of this matter and finally get to reduce the excess fat with a long-term perspective?
I’m going to make this article short and sweet and get to the point right away. The first step in this process is to write down what you eat in a food journal. It doesn’t have to be a fancy journal, but I will mention that I found one that is absolutely spectacular because it also allows you to write down your workouts into. Check out the demo of everything included in the journal by going to the link here – Fitlosophy FitBook.
Nevertheless, keeping a food (& workout) journal is pretty much a golden key to success with your ability to lose fat and keep it off. But we should take this one step further.
When you’re writing down what you ate, also write down how you felt emotionally at that time. Were you in a hurry, anxious, depressed, stressed out, upset or just bored? Dig deep and think of the roots of your emotions and possible ways to address these.
This one simple tip will really rewire your brain to acknowledge how emotional your eating habits are. And once you know this you can face those matters dead on.
Finding avenues to deal with the negatives such as channeling this energy into your workouts is one of the best things you can do to achieve long-term success. Be proactive and be positive. Be confident and don’t let anything get in your way. If you’re feeling sorry for yourself or you’re just bored try yoga or a long walk to explore your city more, or better yet how about pampering yourself with a massage.
