How to prevent Emotional Eating.
We all emotionally eat from time to time. Why do we do this? Most likely to take our mind off of whatever is wrong and distract ourselves with something else, food. According to  Dr. Susan Albers, when you are stressed out, your body is flooded with cortisol, a stress hormone, which makes you crave carbohydrates, sugar and fatty foods, which may be another reason why we turn to food. 
But how can you stop this? 
It is important that you recognize the times when something is wrong and you are turning to food. How can you recognize this?
Emotional hunger isn’t satisfied once you’re full. Instead you will continue to mindlessly eat to the point where you may feel sick.
Emotional hunger isn’t located in the stomach. Instead you are focused in your head. You are craving specific foods, smells, tastes, etc. You do not actually feel hungry.
Emotional hunger often leads to regret, guilt, or shame. You feel this way because you know you ate poorly and you know that food was not needed- you were not actually hungry.
Emotional hunger craves specific comfort foods. When you are truly, physically hungry - you would be willing to eat almost anything- including healthy options like fruits & veggies. However when you emotionally eat you often crave your comfort foods like sweets & other unhealthy options.  
Emotional hunger comes on suddenly, while physical hunger comes on more gradually.
How can you stop/prevent emotional eating?
Learn how to recognize physical vs. emotional eating. Catch yourself when you are about to emotionally eat and ask yourself if you are really hungry. Figure out what is wrong and causing you to turn to food.
Is it stress? Many people emotionally eat when they are stressed out with something! You need to realize emotionally eating will most likely make the stress worse- you are not actually dealing with what is wrong and you are going to make yourself feel worse by overeating.
How can you manage your stress? Figure out what you can do when you feel stressed. Instead of turning to food, call a friend, go for a walk/run, take a bath, go on tumblr, whatever relaxes you and will take your mind off of things!
Also, figure out how to deal with what is bothering you. While you can go for a walk or take a bath to take your mind off things for now and hopefully prevent yourself from overeating, that may not actually solve what is wrong. Talk to someone about what is wrong and try to figure out what you need to do to get through it! 
If you are eating out of boredom then find a new activity you can do! Take up a new hobby, make plans with friends, look for a job, or something that you would enjoy that would keep you busy more often!
Learn to deal with your emotions. Instead of turning to food when you are angry, upset, lonely, or even happy, find another outlet for your emotions! Whatever would help you personally. Write it down, as mentioned above, call someone, whatever helps YOU! 
Emotional eating can be put to an end and you will feel so much better if you learn to deal with what is stressing you out rather than turning to food! Follow these tips and do your best to work through these situations! It may be hard at first but eventually you will be able to work through stressful times with no problem at all! I know you can all do it ! And I am here if you ever need anything! 
If you have trouble with binge eating - I have a post about that here.
And if you just binged or had an off meal - I have a post about that here!
I hope this helps and my ask is always open if you need anything !

To the asswad who called me bulky with too much fat. 

Huh, okay I’m sorry that my body somehow offends you. I was under the impression it was my body. Would you prefer i starve myself to a vegetative state again, to where I have a feeding tube shoved inside of me, no life expectancy left, and my parents are sobbing in the corner?

Because that is where I came from. 

Yeah I may not be as cut as I would like to be, but do you have any freakin idea in the world how difficult it is for me to lose weight after what I put my body through? 

You ask anyone who recovered from starving themselves to near death…our bodies didn’t exactly swing back to full health. 

So why don’t you shove it you stupid fuck. My brain is fucked up enough as it is with my awful thoughts, I don’t need you adding to it.

SHIT BBY YOU ARE STUNNING AF LIKE DAYUM YOUR BOD IS BANGIN AND I KNOW IM YELLING BUT I CANNOT STOP OR HOLD IT IN  

Ugh. You’re too kind. 😚😘😳

Nah, just truthful. If you get mean anons either send them my way or tell me and I will inject SO MUCH POSITIVITY into your life 

You’re making me tear up and I’m so emotional right now I want to drive to your house and hug you but I might fall asleep on the drive so here’s a *hug*🙌❤💞

Girl you did that to me yesterday so this is just payback :P <3 Virtual hugs for now, real hugs at a later point <3 

Ugh but emotions make me weak and woozy! And yayyyy I can’t wait for that day!!!!

Yoga is one of the best things you can possibly do for your body. Regular yoga practice can positively affect digestion, circulation, respiration and lung capacity, heart health, posture and core strength, bone density, body composition, and joint health and flexibility; it can help the body process toxins out of its systems; it can promote regular appetite and sleep rhythms; it can improve mental health, neurological function and focus; and it can help relieve chronic pain. Best of all, a yoga practice can be modified to benefit any individual body and any range of abilities.
