Emotional Overeating

Emotional overeating means turning to food for comfort and escape during times of low mood. When someone overeats emotionally, they are attempting to feel comforted and soothed. Enjoying food as a reward or pick-me-up from time to time is a normal, natural part of life. 

However, problems arise if this is the only strategy you use, and if it happens so regularly that you begin to feel like you’re not in control.
