No more 'reward' eating/emotional eating

Postby Tams » Tue Dec 22, 2015 10:23 pm

I came across this today, and thought it is very very interesting, including for weightloss. So many of us 'overreward' with food or emotionally eat. It would be interesting to see what would happen to weight, if we shifted our focus FROM weight(loss), to the BRAIN and dopamine levels. I think all of these things in this list to help doamine levels in the brain, would kill the emotional eating, because the dopamine would negate the 'need'. And they would also work on weightloss full stop. You can't go wrong: ... ductivity/

Number 1 is my first job for now. I got myself addicted to sugar again...

For me it is the taste and texture of food that I like so much. Unfortunately, once eating ends the feeling goes. So I want it back. Addiction.

I might try an experiment - find ways to feel good to counter not eating. For example, if want, but choose to avoid a second serve of chicken stir fry then I'll force myself to feel good about the choice rather than bad that I missed out on a second serve.

I'm addicted to...FOOD! :shock:
Apparently if I eat too much I get huge and if I eat too little I can die!
Where is the happy medium? :lol:
