It’s been a little over one week since February 14th. Think back to your most memorable Valentine’s Day… mostly all of us can think of a special person, an experience we had with that person, and how they made us feel. In addition, I’m sure we can also remember a Valentine’s filled with disappointment, sadness, or loneliness. This may have been our first experience with an immediate urge to compensate our negative feeling by over indulging in chocolate truffles left lying around the house or office.
Unfortunately, this type of emotional eating is something people struggle with daily. It’s this constant battle and urge to comfort ourselves with food (usually high in sugar, salt, and fat) until we give up and allow food to take control of our eating habits altogether.
