Emotions and eating behaviour – Part I

In this video prof. Nanette Stroebele-Benschop starts describing the relationship between emotions and eating behaviour

How does our emotional states relate to our eating behaviour?

In this video step, Prof. Stroebele-Benschop explores the different ways emotions can affect our food intake, drawing from a model developed by Dr. Macht, Professor at the University of Würzburg.

It is important to note that this model does not apply to pathological eating behaviour, some of which were discussed last week, while others will be discussed next week.
