Stress eating

Monday, September 12, 2011

I was reading all the entries about stress eating and began to think about conscious and unconscious eating instead. The few entries that stood out to me were the ones that said they dealt with their need for snacks by making a point of making them special. I started doing this this evening. I came home after work and celebrated by a coffee and one biscuit. It was great because in my mind I was feeling guilty about the biscuit - it was a celebration! (I'm not sure how much knowing that I'll have to add up my calories later made me just want to eat one - quite a bit I think!!)
I think stress eating may have more to do with just munching food without thinking because we are worrying so much about what's going on in our lives and possibly less to do with the stress itself.
