Manage episode 307830271 series 2475118
Did you know that there is a hidden force that drives your behaviors associated with food addiction, emotional eating and binge eating? This hidden force is your emotions and when you struggle to regulate your emotions, it can have a big impact on your binge eating, emotional eating and food addiction behaviors. If you have food and body image issues, you may respond to emotions by using food to numb yourself or tamp down even happy feelings. Both reactions to emotional pain are two sides of the same coin—attempts to escape from your emotions, or from the “emotional soup.”
In this episode you will learn:
- What is the emotional soup?
- What are the 4 things you need to know to get out of the emotional soup?
- How can being stuck in your emotions affect your food and body image issues?
- Why how you express your emotions is the same as how you deal with food.
