Emotional Eating…To Eat Or Not To Eat?
Don't label yourself an emotional eater. Eat smarter and cultivate your mindfulness.

To address all of the factors that undermine eating too much, you have to be more mindful about your eating. Mindful eating revolves around eating when you're hungry, slowly savoring the experience and stopping when you're full. With practice you will learn to consider, before that first bite, whether it's the smart thing to do at that moment. With practice you will learn to enjoy what you're eating and notice when you've eaten enough. With practice you will learn to make good choices. Instead of the ice cream, maybe your time would be better spent looking for your date for next Valentine's day.
