Do you sometimes eat even when you are not hungry, but just feel bored, angry or empty?
Are you chronically stressed because you try to be perfect all the time?
My conversation with emotional eating expert Karen Koenig ends up being not just about eating, but our deeply unconscious patterns and personality tendencies that hold us back, such as perfectionism and what she calls nice boys and girls syndrome.
This conversation was both intimate and practical. We shared some of our journeys, and Karen offered great tips you can immediately use to get off the emotional roller coaster.
Whether or not you think you struggle with emotional eating, I think you will learn a lot from this.
