What Dr. Hamilton could say on
How Emotions Play a Role in :
- Could have been triggered in infancy—when you cried did your caregiver just stick a bottle in your mouth or give you snacks when you were upset? If this was done in infancy or childhood, this could lead to external regulation as an adult.
- Has roots in neural pathways in the brain—the “reward centers” in the brain can connect food to a positive emotion and then the body wants to repeat that emotion because of the connection the brain made.
- Emotional eating can lead to obesity and is often related to depression, anxiety, or trauma.
- Emotional eating can be treated by recognizing and addressing the emotion being felt.
- Treating the emotion with healthier options that still can release dopamine, such as exercise, reading, walking in nature, etc… so the brain can make new healthier pathways!
