Webinar Description

We don’t always eat because we are hungry, do we? There are many triggers that can influence our desire to eat outside of physical hunger, including situations, feelings and emotions. Our decision to eat can often have emotional associations. Emotional eating can cover a wide range of emotions--from eating in response to pleasant emotions all the way to unpleasant emotions. Emotional eating can lead to unhealthy eating patterns, poor nutrition, weight gain, and no relief from the unresolved emotional issues it may have started with.

This presentation explores what emotional eating is, what can trigger us to eat, and what strategies we can use to help with emotional eating. Emotional eating is eating in response to our feelings or emotions instead of physical hunger. It’s something we probably have all done in certain situations, but when this becomes habitual behavior, we learn to continually respond to daily problems or major life events by eating. This can lead to the health consequences noted above.

We’ll learn about eating triggers and explore self-awareness and self-regulation strategies to influence healthy behaviors. As participants learn to pay more attention to what and why they eat, they will learn to identify the emotions, behaviors, and associations they have toward certain foods. The end objective is raising awareness around this issue, encouraging people to self-reflect on their own eating habits and the emotions that may be driving their behaviors.

Objectives

Following this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • define emotional eating.
  • identify the eating triggers that can lead to emotional eating.
  • identify strategies to help manage emotional eating.
