Emotional Eating – Twitter Chat

The last of our five Twitter Chats on fitness and wellness is scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday, February 10) at noon.  So far, we’ve heard from a dietitian, an exercise specialist, a family health educator, and a physician.

We’re ending this series with psychiatrist Dr. Jeffrey Childers. He plans to share strategies on how to stay on track for the rest of the year. Chat topics will include:

• Identifying eating disorders

• Figuring out your triggers to overeating and how to redirect that energy into healthy activities

• Nutrition deficiencies that can present as depression or fatigue that can lead to overeating

• How not to let diets become an obsession and instead make healthy eating a lifestyle change
