Part Two: How Our Society Influences Our Relationship With Food
If you choose to , you will work through a series of exercises and questions which will help you reach a much deeper understanding of your emotional eating struggles, how they began, the patterns and habits you may have learned in childhood, how your cultural experiences have influenced your food beliefs, and simple but specific tips for overcoming emotional eating. You will also set personal goals to improve your health and heal your emotional relationship with food.
Do you struggle with emotional eating, overeating, and/or stress eating? The truth is that emotional eating has become an epidemic in our society. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself why you eat when you feel sad, angry, happy, depressed, or bored? Where, when, and how did you learn to associate emotions with eating? This short eBook makes a compelling case that our struggles with emotional eating actually begin when we are children. We learn certain food-related beliefs and habits from our parents (or parental figures), and whether we are aware of it or not, we carry those eating behaviors into our adult lives. We also learn to eat emotionally from our larger society and culture. We eat at weddings, and we eat at funerals. We celebrate with food, and we grieve with food. Is it truly any surprise then that we struggle with emotional eating in our private moments? This short eBook will help the reader to understand the roots and origins of his/her food struggles. The goal is for the reader to gain a much deeper understanding of the massive influence our families and our society have on our relationship with food. If you have been blaming and shaming yourself for your emotional eating issues, this book will help you to see that it truly is not all your fault. As you begin to understand the root causes, you are then empowered to make lasting changes in your relationship with food, develop a healthy and balanced emotional connection with food, and conquer unhealthy emotional eating for good.
