Take the Fight out of Food – Eating and Stress

Posted: Jan 17, 2017

Help! Why do I always turn to food when I’m stressed? Some people turn to food to ease stress, which is called emotional eating. This cycle spirals into eating too much of the wrong foods, leaving you feeling worse. 

Eating should be joyful, not a source of everyday frustration and confusion. If you’re fighting with food, try this three-step approach:

  1. Spot the problem. Define what’s causing your fight with food first.

  2. Get the facts. Use facts from credible sources to decide what needs to be done to solve the problem.

  3. Seek support.  Put the plan into action with support from a dietitian, family and friends.
