Only recently I realised just how much I emotionally ate. I knew I did it, but I didn't understand to what extent. I think that for a lot of us, this realisation has been the motivation we needed to start this whole process up.
I've been reading a lot lately about it and something that comes up often is that emotional eaters are often encouraged to celebrate or appease their emotions with food, or that they're not "taught" how to eat properly. All of that very often from a very young age so it becomes engrained. Others find release in food later on after difficult times in their lives.
I was just wondering if people had thought about where or who they had gotten their habits from? Has it helped you understand why you eat? Are you resentful or understanding?
Some pretty deep stuff here ladies and gents
