EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) was originally
designed to reduce the psychotherapy process from months and years down to minutes and hours. From there it was discovered

Often the real cause of emotional eating is not the desire for food, it is the need for some feeling that
you are using food to fill. It may be loneliness, anger, depression, boredom or a number of other issues, Food
will only give a temporary "fix". Until you find and release that emotional need, the uncontrolled desire
for food just keeps coming back again and again.
EFT has become one of my favorite tools for releasing the emotional ties to food and over eating.
