With a fully-stocked pantry, free food delivery, and nowhere to go, the corona-crisis is a setup for emotional eating. So I wanted to offer a tip for managing food cravings while social distancing.
Ever notice that emotional eating urges are worse in certain circumstances? For example, when your child leaves half a syrup-drizzled waffle on their plate, when you sit in front of the TV, or when you're the last one awake in the house? These situations stimulate the impulse to eat, even when you're not hungry.
