SERVICES > COMFORT EATING

Comfort eating comes in many shapes and sizes and it doesn't always look like a girl crying into a tub of ice-cream as Hollywood would suggest! It usually involves eating foods which are higher in calories from carbohydrates or fats as a response to uncomfortable or difficult to deal with emotions or feelings. 

While the underlying reasons are best dealt with with a psychologist, our role as dietitians is to help you identify these relationships between your feelings and food and to help you work towards ways to address these and feel more in control of your diet again.
