“Acceptance is coming to a place of contentment and serenity with whatever’s happening,” says Katie Ziskind, owner of Wisdom Within Counseling. “It’s an internal head space you have to come to in order to make a change.

How To Stop Emotional Eating   –   October 17, 2018

If you think you’re a stress eater, a good first step is to make sure you’re getting proper nutrition throughout the day, says Katie Ziskind, a licensed marriage and family therapist. You may be eating more in the evenings because you haven’t properly fueled yourself during the day.

Meeting with a registered dietitian can help you come up with a well-rounded eating plan. But if you’re getting proper nutrients and you’re an emotional eater, therapy could help. People emotionally eat for a variety of reasons, but oftentimes it’s to numb themselves or detach from feelings that seem too intense, Ziskind explains. Working with a therapist can help you understand those feelings so you can release them in positive ways.”
