Emotional eating?

A woman friend told me that I need to address the “emotional eating” that some women do.  I’m not a woman :-) However, I believe that a previous meal high in simple carbs and unhealthy animal fats promotes sugar rising, then crashing; these, combined with stressors of everyday life, make us more prone to “emotional eating.”

One way to lesssen emotional eating, then, may be better food choices earlier in the day – and not waiting until famished to eat.  Especially when confronted with decision fatigue, as we’ve been discussing this week.
