10 Signs You're An Emotional Eater

It's important to point out: We all eat emotionally. 

Humans are emotional beings and it would be impossible to never eat emotionally.

Emotional eating is not always a bad thing and in fact, I tend to believe it's actually a good thing.

When we eat emotionally, it is usually a sign that something in our life is either missing or needs some attention. People often use food as coping mechanism for dealing with life's challenges which isn't always the best, but it definitely could be worse.

The truth is, just because you are eating healthy doesn’t mean you should be binge eating or eating until you are so full.

So how do you put it end to overeating especially when you feel like you have no control once you start eating and you just can’t stop when it tastes so good?
