The Emotional Eating Diary - The Mindful Body

What is really pushing you to eat when you're not hungry?

All of us experience some form of eating in response to emotions, both positive and painful. It’s perfectly normal!

However, it might become a problem when eating is the only or the most frequent way you deal with emotions or stressful situations in your life.

Does eating leave you constantly feeling bad about yourself, guilty and worried?

Download the diary and start becoming aware of what makes you reach out for food and what your feelings around food look like.

Awareness is the first step towards healing!

Thanks so much for accommodating me, it was really helpful and enlightening. Overall, I have gained a sense of appreciation for myself and my efforts. That I have been doing well after all and have self-awareness. Thanks for showing me that.

I bought a couple ice cream sandwiches yesterday and this time, I felt excitement and fondness instead of guilt. The ice cream sandwiches remind me of my younger days and my younger brother. I will surely enjoy it when I eat them at some point.

I also got myself a bunch of flowers to set near my lunch table because as you said, it is about making an experience out of it.

The part where you said that I should allow myself to fully enjoy really resonated to me and have been applying it to my life when I can.

I will do my best to keep it up.

Thanks for the notes and recipes too!

I guess I never really stopped and reflected before this.

I mean, reflected on how my lack of confidence in many different situations is pushing me to just lose control over what I'm eating.

One thing that will stay with me is the iceberg.

That image you explained to me. It has helped realise there's so much going on for me. Neither me nor others can see it! At least until now.

Thank you Dona. It was very useful!
