Most American adults have a relationship or have had experiences with emotional eating. There really isn’t a single definition of emotional eating exists, emotional eating is explained as eating in response to feelings rather than hunger. Emotional eating typically is linked to stress, depression, anxiety, or frustration. The major issue with emotional eating is that people tend to overeat, consume too many calories, and choose foods that are nutrient poor. It seems that part of emotional eating incorporates salty, fatty, and sweet foods, which of course can lead to becoming overweight.
