Have you ever had one of those days when you just couldn't get enough of your favorite comfort foods? That's the very definition of "emotional eating."Have you ever had one of those days when you just couldn't get enough of your favorite comfort foods? Perhaps you had a bad interaction at work or a fight with your significant other.

That's the very definition of "emotional eating."

"Emotional eating is when we use food to make ourselves feel better. It is basically eating our feelings; seeking instant gratification. We sometimes live in a cold callous world and we want to feel," explains Hollis Lance Liebman. 

So, when we are stressed or anxious or tired or sad, we often turn to food for comfort. And, let’s be honest, eating these foods can feel amazing. But, only for a fleeting time. And then we are stuck with guilt, which can spur the cycle all over again.

Liebman says you can combat emotional eating with conscious eating. 

"What you want to get to is focusing on eating when you are truly hungry. Eat when you are supposed to, small meals throughout the day, which drives you to the core of nutrition's purpose: fortifying oneself," advises Liebman.

Listen as Liebman joins host Lisa Davis to discuss the difference between emotional eating and conscious eating, the types of foods (and frequency of meals) you should incorporate daily to optimize your body's function, and other helpful nutrition and fitness tips.
