A recent study at the University of Salzburg found that emotional eaters — people who use food to regulate negative emotions — had a stronger appetite response and found food to be more pleasant when experiencing negative emotions compared to neutral emotions. The findings further our understanding about emotional overeating, a risk factor for developing eating disorders such as bulimia, and the results point towards the potential effectiveness of emotion regulation strategies when treating disordered eating.
