Emotional Eating Verses Hunger

Emotional Eating Verses Hunger

Has anybody experienced emotional eating verses actual hunger? I have battled eating disorders all my life so the 2 seem to go hand in hand for me

Yes, I was diagnosed with compulsive binge eating disorder 20 years ago . It’s a battle every day not to eat. Having a eating disorder is the worst kind of addiction.. because although all other addictions can walk away from theirs... a body needs food unless we just do liquid diets for rest of our life.. but then theirs still a chance of overeating that way as well.. so no win for us... getting a dietician on your side and seeing them weekly or every two weeks is a must..it can help a lot.

I constantly catch myself wanting or trying to find something to eat when I feel down, stressed, or anxious.

I eat to feel emotionally full and that is where I am making a mistake.
