Have you ever been so stressed out that you end up eating an entire bag of chips or something else crunchy? What about being so sad that you down a whole thing of ice cream? If so, you aren’t alone, and our emotional eating has a lot to do with different types of textures.
Different types of textures are associated with different emotions we are experiencing because of how our body perceives these textures. For instance, a creamy texture can be really soothing, which is why we turn to the ice cream when we are sad.
Once we understand how these textures integrate with our emotional eating, we can then take this information and understand what it is our body is trying to tell us!
