Q's to ask when Emotional Eating
In the work of Intuitive Eating, we’re not actually trying to STOP emotional eating. This is “results” focussed which can encourage black and white thinking/feeling (& just plain old remind us of diet culture). We are actually just bringing some awareness and getting curious about our wants, needs & what we are feeling. We leave judgement at the door. There’s no right or wrong, just learning. Emotionally eating is very normal. It’s a very normal role of food. There is nothing “wrong” with you. What’s amazing on this journey is learning that emotional eating can contain a treasure trove of information about yourself to tap into. Next time - ask yourself these questions & see what comes up. This is just one tool we use (& 1 principle we explore) on the journey of Intuitive Eating.
