Emotional eating is a disordered form of eating that can lead to difficulties with weight loss efforts and can grow into a larger problem like binge eating and obesity. Emotions such as sadness, loneliness, anger, anxiety, and frustration, as well as positive emotions like happiness, can lead to eating when not hungry. Also, “stress eating” is a common form of emotional eating that can lead to feelings of regret, shame, guilt, and disappointment. Emotional eating can affect people of all ages, races/ethnicities, and both males and females. Treatment for emotional eating may include cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, mindfulness techniques, and appetite awareness training.
