Is it an eating disorder, or an emotional management disorder? Emotional eaters overeat to avoid uncomfortable feelings and my guest today, psychologist Dr. Joan Rosenberg, discusses the 8 primary feelings that cause most of our problems. These feelings (and our avoidance of these feelings) drive our actions and reactions to life and managing these feelings is the key to successful living. This was such a fun chat and a great topic for people like us!
