Mindless eating is a disconnect; a mindfulness and yoga practice restores that connection gently and slowly.
In some cases, you might not know the food addiction is there until you start to unravel the emotional problems.
Recovery from emotional overeating is not easy, and there truly is no quick fix. But if you start where you are, stay gentle with yourself, and enlist the right kind of support, you can experience the freedom of recovery.
