Episode #25: How Do I Stop My Emotional Eating?

Today we’re talking about a common question we get: How do I stop being such an emotional eater? Well, as usual, the discussion around this might surprise you. We dig into common questions as well as some practical tips for how to navigate this. Topics include understanding what emotional eating really is, how restriction impacts our eating behaviors, the importance of breaking your food rules, and how to tune in to different signs of hunger.
