Emotional eating is a pattern of eating where people use food to help them deal with stressful situations.
It could show itself as eating a bag of chips when bored or eating a chocolate bar after a difficult day at work. However, when emotional eating happens frequently or becomes the main way a person deals with their emotions, then their life, health, happiness, and weight can be negatively affected.
It is very easy to mistake emotional hunger for physical hunger. But there are characteristics that distinguish them. Recognising these subtle differences is the first step towards helping to stop emotional eating patterns.
At Clínica do Tempo® there are special programmes to minimize all risks from stress (depression, high blood pressures, heart attacks) and to control both physical and psychological causes for emotional eating.
The Food Reeducation and Behavioural Program and Body Modelling by Clínica do Tempo®, enables an individualisation of the alimentary regime and weight and fat excess reduction, in a healthy and permanent way. So it is possible to timely prevent different pathologies, of genetic origin or related to lifestyle and life experiences, hence prolonging longevity.
