Are you an emotional eater? Emotional eating is the practice of consuming large quantities of food -- usually "comfort" or junk foods -- in response to feelings instead of hunger. Experts estimate that 75% of overeating is caused by emotions. By identifying what triggers our eating, we can substitute more appropriate techniques to manage our emotional problems and take food out of the equation.
Emotional eating is a common problem faced by both men and women, and it will definitely undermine your best efforts to fitness. Hey, life is complicated. Fortunately, we have our resident Life Coach, Jenn Nocera, with us today. Jenn's been a guest before, and she has a unique background which enables her to provide personal training for both body and mind. First, she'll explain exactly what emotional eating is and detail the symptoms for us. Then she'll help us understand what triggers our eating and how we can get to the underlying cause of it. You've heard it before -- it's not what you're eating; it's what's eating you.
You need to conquer your emotional eating in order to overcome your barriers to fitness. Here's 30 minutes you won't want to miss. After the interview, check out the After Hours Blog at www.jerseycoastal.com/blog.
