I can't get my head around this...
If natural hunger comes on gradually but you are already feeling the effects of emotional hunger and are ignoring it how do you know when you are really hungry?
I probably still be waiting when I passed out?
Yes very interesting, certainly true for some people or some of the time at the very least! My family is very foodie so eating is a social thing and also a way of being nice to others so it is also emotional in that way for me.
There are so many factors in weight gain and the emotional connection is just one of many which is unfortunatly why the same solution wont work for all.
There is a book called skinny thinking: five revolutionary steps to permanently heal your relationship with food. I got it from amazonnit is brilliant, really helping with emotional eating and how to deal

Years later, I'm here to say how interesting this was. Googling for the original and follow up articles showed me that Dr Gould has a book that looks interesting. Shrink Yourself: Break Free from Emotional Eating Forever. I'll report back when my copy comes.
