So delighted you wrote. You are not alone. Many people go to food as a way to cope with underlying emotional issues. Letting go of emotional eating takes time. Awareness is key. You could begin by writing down your food emotional connection. There are self-help programs such as Overeaters Anonymous where those who struggle meet and support one another. You could also seek out an eating disorder therapist in your area for guidance. To learn more about eating disorders and treatment options, visit the bella vita website. Best wishes, Dr Patricia Pitts, PhD The Bella Vita Los Angeles, CA
