Am I an Emotional Eater or Binge Eater?

Learn the difference between emotional eating and binge eating, because…yep, they are not the same!

In a nutshell, emotional eating is when you use food to soothe yourself, reward yourself or suppress an emotion such as stress, anxiety, boredom, happiness, anger. Whereas binge-eating, on the other hand, is not just overeating. It’s eating large amounts in a frenzied panic – this is often the result of dieting.  Watch the video to get the full low-down.
