You are what you eat, or don’t eat. Are you eating your feelings?
So, you’re craving chocolate again. Or that creamy Pasta Alfredo again. How about topping it off with a chewy caramel ice cream thereafter? Do you know what that means? Hint: you’re feeling a lot more than hunger. Today, experts know that food cravings actually have a lot to do with one’s emotional state. In other words, we’re drawn to specific food types based on how we feel.
Our cravings or eating habits tend to manifest themselves when we’re feeling vulnerable. Rather than expressing our emotions, we tend to stuff them down with food, which our bodies translate as comfort and fulfillment.
You’re only human! Most people accept food cravings as a normal part of everyday life without really ever asking “why?”. No two bodies are the same and, therefore, no two reasons behind a specific food craving are the same. While some may be rooted in nutritional deficits – others may be a deeper signal from our souls echoing throughout our bodies.
Your mind, body, and soul communicate through intricate signals, which isn’t always easy to decipher. However, with a little effort, you can translate these signals and create the means needed for improved health.
Scientific research shows that when people have trouble identifying the emotion they’re experiencing and ways to deal with it, they’re more likely to go on a binge-eating spree or stress eating, and give in to their cravings. After a while, your body learns this routine and sends cravings in order to create a short-term boost of chemical components.
The same goes with starvation in the name of detox or diets. Do you have a healthy image of your body? Do you know the deeper and subconscious reason why you want to lose or gain weight? Find out the reason behind the challenge of shedding those pounds, or if you are successful in losing them, only to return to your old weight, or more.
