I read this article this morning and was really struck how true it is.
You may have read it before, not sure, but I really wanted to share it with y'all.

Thanks for sharing the article. I could completely relate. While I wouldn't buy the book (because I doubt it says anything new on the subject), it is cathartic for me to hear someone else venting about the daily frustrations of dealing with diabetes.

read the comments, however didnt read the article online. Emotional eating to me is about delving into the bigger picture. i.e the need to punish oneself, something that is troubling you as a person . Stress i believe plays a major part in the choices we make in life.

The way I see it Heidi, is this is Ginger V's attempt for us to get us to buy her book "Emotional Eating with Diabetes" It is probably an excerpt from her book.

God's best to you

James, i agree, it probably is an excerpt from her book and maybe even an attempt to get us to buy her book, the excerpt or article is however a good one and well worth the read..

That may be the case, but it doesn't take away the truth that what is shared is very eye opening and a different way to look at things. Let's face it, almost everything we read is some kind of ad for something. Be it research companies, charities, the company behind the article or the advertizes and sponsors of any article out there. I think true bloggers are the only ones who don't and even if they end up with a book or something down the road, it all lead to that. Unfortunately, nearly everything has it's roots in selling or making money in someway.

This is kind of a new take on the idea of emotional eating and after reading the article I have to say that we may all suffer from this in this form. There is a relaxed part of just being able to eat what you want...or don't want. The trick is to get to that point instead of the constant yin and yang of carbs to avoid and carbs to save a life. It was very eye opening, thank you for sharing.
