Great article Rheyanne! I’m so glad you addressed this emotional aspect of overeating! I’m also a big fan of keeping a food log to log how you feel before indulging (for example, “I feel like a deserve a treat” or “I need something to numb me”) and then how you feel after indulging (for example “I now feel comforted”). I’m also a big fan of getting enough protein through the day an especially at breakfast. I also encourage the consumption of grass-fed red meat which has as much omega-3s as salmon, plus all the amino acids, zinc and iron needed for making our brain chemicals like serotonin and endorphins.
