What Kind of Emotional Eater Are You?

What Kind of Emotional Eater Are You?

My work as an Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner, taught me there are many different reasons people reach for the comfort of food. There are as many reasons as there are emotional eaters! Once you identify and clear the underlying emotional roots the urge to over-eat diminishes or even vanishes.

Here are some questions to help you identify which emotions are triggering your emotional eating.

Are you most likely to emotionally eat when:

You are lonely

You are stressed

You are angry

When you are doubting yourself

When you are reminded of painful past experiences

If you could change one thing about your emotions what would it be?

I’d stop letting loneliness overwhelm me

I’d stop feeling so stressed

I’d stop allowing others to trigger my anger

I’d believe in myself more

I’d heal my emotional pain once & for all



The subconscious is where the root causes (and therefore the answers) to all weight and body image issues lie.

In many cases there is an underlying pain of fear, grief, danger, trauma or loss which your body is trying to protect you from by laying down and holding on to fat.

In a surprising number of cases, a happy memory can cause emotional eating. Somewhere deep inside part of you equates food with love and safety. Perhaps you had a happy birthday party and a lovely birthday cake, or your father took you to the beach and bought you ice cream. Perhaps soon after, your father left you. Now you think you crave ice cream after emotional loss, but it’s actually love, warmth and safety you crave.

When you begin to see these patterns for what they truly are, you realise how well your body is trying to look after you. This realisation is your first step to self-empowerment and permanent, healthy weight loss!

It has never been about food. It has always, always, been about healing emotions.


Try our unique healing affirmations. Read or use EFT tapping as you take yourself through our Affirmations for emotionally healthy weight loss & body image then test how you feel about eating. You can really put it to the test by smelling or tasting your favourite food and marking your craving or desire to eat it on a ten point scale (10 being desperate to eat it, zero being you just don’t fancy it or even you don’t think you like it anymore!)

I just wasn’t hungry any longer. I had used your Food meditation the other night for the first time (I always feel guilty about food choices even if all I’ve had is a bagel lol and I find it difficult to know when I’m full, etc.) Well this morning I laid out my breakfast and was happily eating it and then with about 3/4 of it done, I suddenly decided I didn’t want anymore, I just wasn’t hungry any longer. This might seem very normal for most people but that doesn’t happen to me. lol So I was very surprised and pleased! lol Just wanted you to know how effective your meditations are. And by the way, all previous attempts I’ve made at meditating (before purchasing your meditations) have been an abject failure for me, thus why I am really overjoyed to find something effective that makes me WANT to meditate! 😉 lol” A.W. .
Perfect tools for those who understand and want self healing. by Suparna G These guided meditations are super effective and WELL worth the small amount you have to pay for them. I’ve used these meditation techniques for the past year and a half, to help with a number of my personal issues and I have had tremendous success. (Since practicing these techniques I’ve changed my life style, eating habits, become more active, lost weight, quit smoking to name a few!) I am a healthier, happier, more peaceful person thanks to Barbara making her meditations and healing techniques available. I would definitely recommend this app to those genuinely wanting to effect change within themselves.”
