How Supporti can help you
break free from emotional eating
YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD IS COMPLICATED. THE SOLUTION DOESN’T HAVE TO BE.
If you struggle with stress eating, you’re not alone. It’s natural to turn to food for comfort. After all, food smells good, tastes good, and makes us feel good in the moment. The problem? By eating your feelings, you're depending on food to feel better rather than dealing with the underlying emotions. You know what happens next. You feel ashamed and guilty for overeating, which then adds to your stress. It's a destructive cycle.
That's why dieting may not be the answer if you're an emotional eater. Diets can complicate your relationship with food, and worsen the stress eating cycle. To break free of emotional overeating for good, you need to break ingrained behaviors and address the root cause.
IT'S TIME TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT
By taking incremental, consistent steps to break the food stress cycle, you'll begin to create a more positive relationship between food and your feelings. While it make take time and consistent work, you don't have to go it alone. In fact, overcoming overeating can be an empowering personal growth journey. Here's how.
MAKE CONSISTENT PROGRESS WITH AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER
Supporti uses the power of positive peer support to help you stay motivated to consistently make small lifestyle changes. It does so by supplying you with daily encouragement from an accountability partner through a mobile app.
By taking daily actions towards building awareness of your feelings around food and adopting new behavior patterns, you’ll start breaking the habit of eating your feelings.
How do you build the habit of awareness while eating?
In the same way you build any other behavior, start by defining when and how you'll do it. So, if you're journaling after each meal, tell your accountabilibuddy what kind of journal you'll use, and when you'll write in it. Then report back at the end of the day on whether you did it or not.
Your buddy will hold you accountable to doing the daily internal work it takes to sustainably change your behavior.
SMALL DAILY ACTIONS, BIG LASTING CHANGE
To break the habit of stress eating, Supporti has you focus on a daily action for the week to which your partner will hold you accountable. Individuals have the most success when they commit to one daily action at a time.
You'll customize your daily action based on where you are in your emotional eating journey. Supporti suggests daily actions for you, but you're more likely to stay motivated in the long-term when you take ownership of the why and how of your daily action.
Supporti makes new behaviors accessible and actionable by having you focus on one for a week at a time: long enough to give it a fair try, but short enough to adjust if needed. See examples below.
Examples of customizable daily actions
Track your triggers for stress eating
Reflect on your relationship with food

Reduce the root cause of stress
Throughout your weeklong session, you can check off whether or not you met your daily action, which is tracked in Supporti so you can see your daily actions adding up over time. It's rewarding to see how far you've come!
After each week, you can adjust your daily action as needed.
