The Wellness Revolution Podcast with Amber Shaw

TWR 188: Emotional Eating and How to Overcome It

Are you stuck in a cycle of emotional eating and self-blame, feeling like you’re constantly fighting and failing at the diet game? Amber is here to change that narrative. In this episode of The Wellness Revolution Podcast, Amber is breaking down the emotional eating cycle and challenging the myths that diet culture perpetuates.

Emotional eating is more than just a struggle with food; it’s often deeply rooted in our emotions and self-perception. Amber recently had a vulnerable conversation with a client who used emotional eating to cope with grief, and she explores how this coping mechanism can lead to feelings of guilt and shame.

Amber dives into the heart of the issue, seeking to understand the root causes of these behaviors and emphasizing the need for self-compassion. By identifying our triggers and understanding our emotional responses, we can equip ourselves with the tools necessary to break free from the cycle of emotional eating.

Key Highlights

  • For someone using food as a coping mechanism, it can be really hard to realize they are in this situation and even harder to get out of it in a healthy and sustainable way.
  • For someone who already suffers from self-image issues, this kind of problem can be even more problematic because the person ends up in a vicious cycle of eating and feeling guilt, day after day.
