Next time you're in the middle of an attack for something sweet , ask yourself...Am I really hungry ? (the stomach hurts and makes noises, the body is asking you to enter more “fuel”). In this case the need to eat is biological and it is almost the same to satisfy it with any food.
Instead, if we use food to manage emotions (sadness, joy, stress) or sensations (tiredness, etc.) what is sought is a specific edible “the body asks me for something sweet... I needed to eat that salty... I can't go to sleep without eating chocolate”. It doesn't hurt the stomach or make noises. In these situations, food goes from meeting a physiological need to calming an emotional state , and this can in many people contribute to weight gain (along with other factors).
For people who are taking care of their weight or in treatment to lose it, it is very useful that before eating they ask themselves...“Am I hungry or is it anxiety?“
Nutrition experts suggest not to manage emotions through meals, because addictive ties are created with it. It is always healthier to face an emotion and manage it through stress management techniques: meditation - yoga - relaxation - conscious breathing - call a friend - relaxing shower, among others. Maybe we were just tired and wanted to correct it with food; in that case, a short nap is ideal, if it is within your means.
