Are You an Emotional Eater?

While food is fuel for our bodies, people eat for all sorts of reasons: gluttonous tendencies and eating out of boredom are just a few. But most of the people I know that eat when they're not hungry, primarily do it because of emotional reasons.

I'd be lying if I said that I never emotionally eat. There have been a few times when a satisfying dish or dessert was my remedy to a stressful day. Food — good food, especially — is a great distraction to the problems people might be facing. But it can become a serious problem when you lose sense of how much and what kind of food you're eating or regularly turn to food as an escape. Are you the type of person that relies on food therapy to make it through the day?
