10: Overcoming Emotional Eating

Emotional eating is something pretty common. Put a group of 20 women together (heck, men too) and probably every one of them can tell you that there is a comfort food(s) they go to when feeling emotional. While it’s not a problem to have a comfort food, it becomes a problem when instead of dealing with feelings you numb them with food.

And that’s what this week’s guest, Melissa Rohlfs, and I chat about. She shares her story of emotional eating and the turning point in her life when she realized it was a problem and how she overcame it…eventually. Because as it often goes, once we admit there’s a problem we sometimes don’t initially do anything about it. But it takes what it takes for us to get to the point where we’re ready to change.
