Starving, Stressed, and Stockpiling

Gain Control by Letting Go of Control- An Approach for Cravings

It’s not a huge surprise to me when the individuals I am working with who initially come in with struggles related to emotional eating, stress binges, and feeling out of control around food report having far less cravings, urges, and impulsive reactions around food after just a week or two of more structured, balanced eating.
