First of all, let’s clarify what emotional eating is:

Have you ever experienced a craving for certain foods when you’ve been angry, sad, or stressed? This is emotional eating.

Can you think of a time when your eating seemed uncontrollable?

Understandably, most of us have some emotions tied up with eating – it’s an activity that surrounds many milestones in our life, for example religious rituals, family get togethers, and various other celebrations.
