9:39 am
>> good morning. >> physical hunger, a lot of us grazing throughout the day probably not ever experiencing hunger like we think. what do we feel with physical hunger? >> biological hunger, true hunger is something you need for survival. we're hardwired to survive. we need calories and mostly this is protein, essential fats. it's not eating for pleasure. that's something that's learned. when you're biologically hungry we most often don't get to that point because we pre-eat, feeling fatigued, your stomach feels empty, growling, you feel a slight headache. i need to eat. these are brain signals sent to you for true hunger. we confuse the issue of i need to eat. that's biological. i want to eat is something else. >> the emotional hunger gets in the way a lot and a lot of us when it comes to struggling with diet, that is often what's happening there, we're reaching for food as a comfort. >> i would say pretty much that's almost always at least a piece of the case that
9:40 am
psychologically you're driven by your mood state. i feel sad. it makes me feel better and in the moment it does make you feel better. i feel anxious. i have to eat. i need to stay awake. i'm bored. i want to eat because i want to be part of socially what's going on. these are different emotional drivers of eating. they're legitimate in the moment but don't work long-term >> why does it feel when you eat something it does feel it is comforting but at the same time you feel like you're satiating some sort of hunger? >> because you are filling yourself of course. >> yes. >> and that just positively r l reinforces the idea the feel good that you get, brain chemistry is definitely involved but the satisfaction of an emotional need. now i just ate this chocolate in those ten minutes, boy, i felt less sad, i felt less anxious. >> food really does taste good when we feed that need, it is reinforcing. the problem on the back end there's guilt and shame with this eating. if you're eating for biology you eat and move on.
9:41 am
when you're eating to are emotional reasons you feel good in the moment and that turns into a lot of bad feelings, negative going why am i doing this? i'm a bad person and it fuels more overeating and that's a huge problem that has to stop. >> you came one strategies how to make sure you know which is which, emotional eating or because you are hungry. madelyn, keep a food and feelings journal. >> you need to connect what you're eating and when you're eating and why and connect your feelings with this because you have to take a step back and go, you know, am i upset, did i have a fight with someone? am i turning to food and just grabbing it mindlessly or has there been three or four hours between the times i'm eating and the only way you can do this is to be accountable to yourself and that's what a food log does. >> when you see it in writing and do it over a period of time you're able to see which emotion tends to trigger your eating the most, which is really helpful, because then you can cope with that, you can find other ways to cope with that emotion and you can say to yourself, oh, here i am anxious again, that's
