Get to the Root of Emotional Eating with Kathrine Kofoed

If you’ve been taught to believe that emotional eating is something to feel shameful about, you’re not alone. But the truth is: food is emotional! It can soothe, evoke memories, create connections, and even transport us to another time in our lives. 

You can eat for all sorts of reasons besides physical hunger: to console, to comfort, to cheer, to dull feelings, to distract. And that’s okay, as long as you feel good afterward. 

But sometimes food isn’t what you’re really hungry for, and eating it doesn’t make you feel any better. That’s when you want to have non-food coping mechanisms.  

Kathrine Kofoed, an evidence-based nutritionist and ACE-certified health coach, struggled with emotional eating for years and beat herself up along the way. When she learned how to get honest with herself and ask the right questions, she found other means to support her when food wasn’t the answer. 

Now, after repairing her own relationship with food, Kathrine’s on a mission to help as many people as possible approach their habits with both mindfulness and compassion to get to the root cause of their emotional eating. 


In this episode, you’ll learn: 

  • What emotional eating can teach you about your habits and life
  • Identifying emotional eating triggers and ways to respond
  • Non-food coping mechanisms to support you when food isn’t the answer 
  • Three different emotional eater archetypes and how to determine yours
  • The best tip that will help you reconnect to your body before eating

Hopefully, this conversation will empower you to release the shame around emotional eating so that you can understand why you are turning to food and when non-food coping mechanisms might be a better option for you.
