Interesting. I learned that I eat in response to anxiety. I think it is similar to drinking in social situations. I eat, instead of drink at social parties. And I also noticed a weekend with my family, I can consume as much as 6000 calories. This is because there is so much high anxiety with my family. Now I just avoid these situations, until I figure out a better strategy. It is physiologically based, I am eating to reduce anxiety instead of nutrition. Is it response to some type of stress. Regardless, it is about learned to think of food "nutritionally" and not "emotionally." You eat to fulfill nutritional needs. That means food needs to taste good enough to eat, but not too good that you eat more than your body needs to function on a physical level.
