Emotional Eating and Bariatric Surgery

Emotional Eating and Bariatric Surgery

Real hunger or emotional hunger?

When the ‘Hunger and Bariatric Surgery’ course has left some questions like “what about stress eating” this is the course for you.

What is emotional eating?

Any eating for non-hunger can be described as emotional eating. True be told, we ALL emotionally eat and there is a lot of biology behind why.

Did you know your body is triggering you to eat for reasons more than just fuel?

We are fascinating and complicated beings so as it turns out “food is just fuel” is not that simple either.

What to expect in this course:

We start off these lessons with a really important conversation on what influences us to eat. The body has TWO main systems that drive us to food and understanding them helps the other lessons make even more sense.

Then we’ll cover several emotions that were reported on a survey about emotions that drive us to eat.

Boredom. Stress. Anxiety. Anger. Fatigue. Loneliness. Female cycles….

The most common emotion reported on my survey for eating outside of hunger was boredom! It turns out, there is science behind why our brain thinks of food when we are bored.
