Five Tips to Dealing with Emotional Eating
Do you binge snack while watching TV and then feel guilty for all the junk food you have consumed? Do you turn to food for comfort or stress relief? When eating something that tastes good, do you continue to eat it, even when you feel full?
The reality is, we all have problems with food. We turn to food for comfort, we eat when we are stressed, and we eat to reward ourselves. We have issues with overeating, eating when we are bored, or eating when we are not hungry. Take a moment and think to yourself – What triggers your emotional eating?
Well, I have good news.
I have five tips that will help you manage your emotional eating habits and I have every intention of sharing them with you. If you have been struggling with emotional eating habits, you will want to continue reading!
- Put Your Energy into a Healthy Activity
If you feel the urge to eat due to stress, anxiety, or any other emotion, take a moment and find something productive to do. Finish some chores around the house, go for a walk, or paint and create something beautiful. Whatever you choose to do, make sure it’s a productive activity that will capture your focus.
- When You Want to Snack, Wait Five to Ten Minutes
When you find yourself wanting to grab that bag of chips, take a moment, and pause for five to ten minutes. It is quite common to be impulsive with our cravings. Let the moment pass. Take a few breaths and let your body calm down.
- Stay Hydrated
Most often we are not drinking enough water throughout our day. It is recommended that women should drink about 74 oz. of water per day and men around 100 oz. per day. By creating a healthy habit of drinking lots of water, especially when we feel the urge of emotional eating, we tend to stay away from overeating or eating junk food because our bodies feel fuller.
- Stay Connected to Positive People
Don’t isolate yourself. As we have adapted to current circumstances, we are learning that we can connect with friends and family in safe and might I add creative ways. There is so much research on how helping others, as well as staying connected with positive people, can have a positive effect on your emotional and mental state.
Most importantly, the best way to fix a problem is to find the root of the issue and fix it.
- Talk with a Professional About the Emotion Code
The Emotion Code is one of the best ways to manage the emotions that are causing annoying eating habits. With the emotion code, you will be able to release negative emotions, triggers, and the emotional baggage that keep you stuck in an unhealthy cycle of eating. With the Emotion Code you can manage these eating habits and it requires absolutely no willpower.

“I had this pattern of getting up right before falling asleep and raiding the fridge. After the Emotion Code clearing, there was no negative feeling prompting me to get up and eat. I fell right to sleep. The bonus was I woke up refreshed. This is going to enhance my life on so many levels. I’m beyond grateful. Juanita, you truly are a gifted healer!” – Nadine
