Balanced nutrition prevents emotional eating and helps you lose weight
Emotional eating can be triggered by feelings of loneliness, boredom, sadness, anxiety and sometimes even happiness. Malnutrition can also trigger mood swings and emotional eating.
Emotional eating can make weight management difficult. When you are lacking a key nutrient, your body drives you to seek out food to fulfill your nutritional need. Without knowing what key nutrient is deficient in your diet, this often results in passive consumption of excessive energy, otherwise known as “compensatory feeding.” Consequently, this can lead to overweight and obesity. Nutrients commonly deficient in the American diet:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin D
- Omega-3 fatty acids
