There are many reasons why we eat; physical hunger is just one of them.  We know that, for many of us, our emotions play a large part in our eating. If we feel stressed, anxious, upset or angry, food may play a role in helping to comfort ourselves, or to numb difficult emotions. In this one hour lecture we help you to reflect on what influences your relationship with food and how this might affect your eating habits.
