Emotional Eating, Triggers and Binging- Sunday 28th May
May 28, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm£25.00 - £74.99
What causes binge eating? Like most eating disorders, it’s seen as a way of coping with feelings of unhappiness and low self-esteem.
Factors that may increase your risk of binge eating include:
- having low self-esteem and a lack of confidence
- depression or anxiety
- feelings of stress, anger, boredom or loneliness
- dissatisfaction with your body and feeling under pressure to be thin
- stressful or traumatic events in your past
- having a family history of eating disorders
Binge eating can sometimes develop following a strict diet, particularly if you skipped meals, cut out certain foods and didn’t eat enough food. These are unhealthy ways to lose weight and may mean you’re more likely to binge at another time.
Have you eaten something because, in that moment you were stressed, emotional, unhappy or angry? You maybe thought “I don’t care anymore” then got through that time period of feeling that emotion by eating and binging continuously, until you think you’ve got yourself out of the mood?
Guilty? We know we are!
Episodes of binge eating or eating with no intent towards nutrition or current goals occur usually in response to a negative mood, thus reinforcing the cycle of weight gain and further periods of a negative mood. Would you like to know more about how to stay on track when things get difficult? Prevent binge eating and not let emotions or boredom distract you from achieving your goals? Then this seminar is for you!
