Weight-loss & Emotional eating

Sometimes the strongest food cravings hit when you're at your weakest point emotionally.

You may turn to food for comfort — consciously or unconsciously — when facing a difficult problem, feeling stressed or even feeling bored. We’ve all be there, it’s part of being human.

Appetite (i.e. physical hunger) usually disappears for the first 12 months after weight loss surgery. 

Learning to recognise the difference between emotional hunger and actual physical hunger is SO important, especially before surgery. 

Your mindset and behavioural patterns need to be strong. Sabotaging your hard earned weight-loss efforts can lead to a 2nd surgery. Let’s be honest, we want to avoid two surgeries! 

The good news is that if you’ve identified being an emotional eater and worked through strategies with your dietitian or psychologist, then you’ll be ready to tackle this beast head on if it rears its ugly head after weight loss surgery

Instead of a “diet”, focus on lifelong sustainable food choices 🤍
