Letting Your Emotions Interfere with Eating

Presented by: Mary Opfer
How many times do you eat simply because you are bored or need comfort? We often tend to not even notice why we are eating and many times it's not because we are hungry, but rather our emotions are coming into play. Excessive stress, not sleeping well, anxiety, and needing emotional comfort lead many of us to the refrigerator or to the snack pantry leaving us with unwanted weight gain, health issues, and lowered self-esteem. Learn how to identify when you are eating emotionally and what your triggers may be. Learn how not to use food to fulfill an emotional void in this engaging, introspective webinar.
