Think Before You Eat

Emotions can add pounds, if you're not careful

You eat when you're sad. You eat when you're happy. You eat when you're stressed about work. Then you can't understand where those extra pounds came from.

The American Dietetic Association (ADA) says many of us eat without thinking, spurred by emotions, rather than hunger. Not only can this lead to overeating, it can cause you to eat more junk food than you should.

Recognizing this behavioral pattern is the first step in correcting the problem. The ADA says you should keep a diary of what you eat and why. Reading it will show you in black-and-white what spurs you to eat too much. Then you can learn to stop and think before you raid the fridge.
