Craving for food and emotional eating
Want to eat and emotional food. New appointment every Thursday on Radio Monaco Feel Good with Julie blanc dedicated to intuitive eating. FYI, intuitive nutrition was conceptualized by American nutritionists Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Recsch in 1995. It is a positive approach to making peace with yourself and with food!
A method more respectful of his body, his needs and especially his desires.
Emotions and food
Very often we talk about emotional eating but we confuse it with Emotional Desires to Eat: EMEs
Our relationship with food has always been linked to emotions. Indeed, food comforts and rewards as soon as you are a baby.
This natural behavior continues in our adult life in the form of EME.
EMEs have a fundamental role in our daily life: they help regulate emotions. If we let EMEs exist fully and simply then there is no problem.
For example, many of us eat something comforting after a bad day and there is nothing bad about it. The key is to do it mindfully, without guilt and savoring it. The problem is rather the mentality of the regimes which points the finger at EMEs, as a behavior that should absolutely be banned.
It is at this precise moment that everything can go wrong. We begin to no longer trust our body and to blame ourselves for eating such or such food in response to an emotion.
When guilt kicks in, the diet becomes skewed.
Existing EMEs for:
– comfort us
– help us through a difficult time
– deserve moments together.
The big difference between EME and true Emotional Eating is the short duration (EME) vs repetitive (Emotional Eating), and the feeling of satisfaction (EME) or guilt (Emotional Eating).
