Take Charge of Eating Tip #21

I really need to remember this tip...

#21 - Don't hide your emotions behind food. Emptiness, pain, numbness, and anger won't go away if we try to stuff these feelings down with food. Make a commitment to resolve past issues that drive you towards unhealthy, un-conscious eating.
I have been trying to do this tip for years. I am making progress, for sure, but it is still an issue for me personally. I don't know when we start making food so emotional, but somewhere along life, we do. Now, it is time to figure out why we go to food when feeling upset and change it!

(If you missed my post about why or how we are doing this Take Charge of Eating challenge, check it out before you join us)


  1. I am a nervous eater, always have been. If I am overwhelmed, worried about something, or have too much to do, I eat. Every so often I can beat it, but it is a constant battle. The only option is to keep foods I shouldn't have out of the house.

    1. Very good tip - just don't buy the junk. I know, it is a constant struggle for me to overcome emotional eating. I think I will be working on it my whole life long.

  2. I am still working on this one, but I definitely agree that getting to the root of the problem is much more effective than trying to smooth things over with food!

    1. Yes, Robin. Every time I think I will feel better by eating, I end up feeling the same afterward with a little bit of guilt added on...
