Mood or Food?

Curb Your Cravings
Daily Tip for Monday, January 5, 2009

Mood or Food?

Is your trip to the fridge about eating or feeling? Superstar trainer Jillian Michaels suggests analyzing your emotions before choosing your snack. Follow these steps and understand what makes you tick—or your tummy growl.
  • When you think you're hungry, learn to stop and ask yourself in that moment, "Am I even hungry?"
  • Explore yourself and your feelings. Are you going through something stressful like a breakup or layoffs at the office? Identify the emotion and what's going on inside you.
  • When you recognize the emotion, you need to face it in order to conquer it. Ask yourself, "Can this issue be resolved in the now?" Do you have the ability to deal with it?
  • If you're at the point where you can't resolve the issue, you need to find ways of nurturing and pampering yourself that are not food-related.
At the end of the day, Michaels also advocates being realistic. "Sometimes it just doesn't work. When all else fails, make a healthier choice."
