Emotional Eating vs Eating Disorder

Do most eating disorders involve an emotional component? 
Absolutely!
Does that mean that emotional eating is an eating disorder?
Absolutely NOT! 

Here are few key elements that separates the two:

1- Eating disorders typically impact functioning to a greater degree than emotional eating.
2- Eating disorders often have greater medical consequences. 
3- There is greater distress with eating disorders vs. emotional eating.
4- Emotional eating is not a disorder but a characteristic of disorder eating 

Almost all of us confront emotional eating once in a while but sometimes it becomes a real struggle. That’s when we need to ask for help and learn how to prevent it.
