Emotional Eating Solved

LivingAfterWLS Weekly Digest: Emotional Eating Solved
Check out the newest edition of our LivingAfterWLS Weekly Digest in our Archive:
"Thank you for joining me in this week's LivingAfterWLS Digest, I know your time is valuable and appreciate you spending some of it with me. Today  we discuss the reality of emotional eating - have you declared yourself an emotional eater? Being an emotional eater is not a character flaw, it is part of the human code that has evolved over many generations. From the beginning of mankind our species has sought food in response to physical and emotional needs. This is universal to every culture on the planet. The emotional need for food is so embedded in our behavior it is unlikely we can ever change it and trying to modify this inherent behavior leads to frustration and feelings of failure. Rather than change the behavior why not acknowledge it and manage it in a healthy and rational way? Today's featured article addresses just that topic: Emotional eating got you down?

We also take a look at Rule #2 - Lots of Water as a reminder how important daily water intake is to our weight loss efforts and our overall wellness.  And don't miss our Quick Tips and a delicious make ahead meal of chicken and potato skins
I hope you find this digest useful in your ongoing efforts for improved health with weight loss surgery. You have the power and knowledge to make this your healthiest season ever! Let's do it together!"
