Emotional calories

I was watching a YouTube video on the channel This Infinite Life. Cris, her husband and their six children are a vegan family that share recipes and vlog about life as a vegan family.

Cris is embarking on a weight loss journey after having her sixth child and she decided to vlog about it on her channel. She has an excellent take on weight loss that is down to earth and not restricting.

In one of her videos Cris talks about emotional calories. She explains the emotions behind what we are eating can have an effect on how the food we eat effects us.

So if you are eating a piece of cake and you feel ashamed about eating it that cake that cake can have a greater effect on your body than if you just enjoyed eating the cake.

Negative emotions change our body chemistry when we are under stress our bodies don’t run efficiently making weight loss harder.
