Hear My Story…
Since I was an adolescent, I was a heavy emotional eater. By emotional eating, I mean that I would eat in response to my emotions. I would eat whenever I feel stressed, anxious, annoyed, angry, tired, bored, or even–get this–happy. My eating never had nothing to do with hunger, but based on my emotions and whimsical fancies.
My emotional eating issues got to the point where they were very severe. I would binge crazily, try to control my eating the next day, only to binge crazily again within a matter of half a day or at night. Not only that, I also binged on terrible food–french fries, ice cream, cookies, cake, chocolates, and so on. It was terrible. For years, I fluctuated between explainable binge behaviors and desires to restrict food.
Burgers and fries–part of my binge eating food
My emotional eating behavior took its roots from my childhood. My parents and I live in a high-context Asian culture, whereby we don’t express our intents through words–we express them through actions and symbolism. They would buy food day-in and day-out, regardless of whether my brother and I were hungry. They would ask me questions like “Are you hungry? Do you need me to cook for you? Do you need me to buy food?” multiple times throughout the day, even when I already had my meal.
As a result, I grew up with a severely twisted relationship with food. I regarded food as love and I would eat in response to stress, sadness, anger, and other negative emotions since eating was way of expressing love to myself. Eating gave me a temporary relief; a temporary high where everything felt okay and all was right with the world.
But this high never lasted. It wouldn’t be long before I felt unhappy again, since my original problem (whatever made me feel stressed/sad/angry/etc.) was not resolved. I would feel even worse this time because not only was my problem not resolved, I had to now face the problem of having just overeaten, hence jeopardizing my diet/weight loss plan. I would then eat even further, stuffing myself with food, to the point where my stomach really hurt. Then I would stop, because I simply couldn’t physically go on any longer. That was how bad my stress eating was.
A typical scene of how I would be at night–alone with a pile of food in my room.
Then, things changed. When I was in my mid-20s, I swore to myself that I was going to resolve my eating issues, once and for all.
I worked through my eating issues, one step at a time. First, I gained consciousness of my erratic behavior. Then, I broke down my eating patterns to understand what were my emotional eating triggers. Subsequently, I drilled into my triggers to break my emotional eating patterns.
It wasn’t easy, for I failed many times. Many days I start off on a good note only to end up bingeing right at night.
But the important thing is… I didn’t give up. I never gave up. I would get right back to tackling my emotional eating behavior the next day. I did this day-in and day-out, for weeks, months, even years.
Today, I have finally overcome my emotional eating problem. I no longer eat in response to stress, anxiety, annoyance, anger, tiredness, boredom, or even peer pressure. I no longer have a love-hate, yo-yo relationship with food. I simply eat as and when I need to eat, and I eat incredibly healthily–I only pick the healthiest choices for my body, which includes salads, grilled over fried options, and low-to-non-fat food over fatty food.
Salads — one of my meal staples today. I love salads because
they are fresh, nutritious, and low in calories.
I have lost the excess pounds I have gained as a result of my emotional eating. My complexion has improved. And I’m happier than I’ve ever been.

to, having working through my emotional eating issues.
I have successfully overcome my emotional eating problems, and I would like to now work with you to overcome your emotional/stress/binge eating issues.
Starting from 28 July, Sunday, (that’s just 10 days away!), I will be running a group coaching course on How To Stop Stress Eating. This is an intensive, four-week course to help all emotional and stress eaters out there to overcome their emotional and stress eating. If you sometimes eat in response to stress or you have struggled with maintaining healthy eating habits, this course is just for you!
How To Stop Stress Eating Course, Starting July 28!!
“Since your EE program, I’ve been on a wonderful journey of healing and wholeness. As of Sept 1st (less than two weeks since completing the program), I am down 17 pounds and loving my new way of eating whole, fresh and tasty foods. Thank you!” ~ Lisa H, course participant
“The EE course was very useful. Doing Module 1 alone made me realize that I was trying to use food as a substitute for so many things, including love and excitement. During Module 3 as we dug to the root of our spiritual self, I found a lot of of baggage that had been weighing me down and causing me to reach out for food as a form of punishment.
Through this course, I have learned so much not only about understanding and managing my EE tendencies, but also a surprising lot about myself. I would definitely recommend this program to others! ” ~ Jodi, course participant
This upcoming How To Stop Stress Eating Course is an intensive, four-module I have specially designed to help all emotional and stress eaters out there to overcome their emotional and stress eating.
I consider this the best program you can ever find on emotional eating because it tackles emotional eating from the root level. This is your one-stop solution to overcome emotional/stress eating and a program you cannot miss if you are serious about living a healthy life, free of bad eating habits and food struggles.
My objective of this course is to help you eliminate emotional eating for the rest of your life, not to provide a short-term fix.
Some details about the course:
- You will receive four x 2-hour group coaching sessions by me, at a pace of one session a week.
- Every week, you will learn one key lesson on overcoming emotional eating, after which you will apply it for the next seven days!
- Each session will consist of of theory (content sharing in a lecture format), exercises (where you apply the theory), sharing by the participants, and a Q&A at the end.
- I will be personally coaching you every session.
The course will eventually culminate in the fourth and last session, where you will review your results and embark on your new life ahead–free of twisted notions surrounding food!!
Here is the agenda for the four-week intensive course:
- Week 1: What are You Trying to Feed? Understand the Void (Tackling the EMOTIONAL aspect of emotional eating)
- Week 2: Breaking Your Erroneous Beliefs Surrounding Food and Eating (Tackling the MENTAL aspect of emotional eating)
- Week 3: The Psyche Force Behind Your Emotional Eating (Tackling the SPIRITUAL aspect of emotional eating)
- Week 4: Rebuild the Right Eating Habits (Tackling the PHYSICAL aspect of emotional eating)
What is the course schedule?
At the moment, the sessions are planned for the four Sundays in July and August (subject to changes):
- July 28 (Sunday) / 9–11pm Singapore time (GMT +8) — Session 1
- August 4 (Sunday) / 9–11pm Singapore time (GMT +8) — Session 2

Kindly crosscheck the corresponding time for Singapore for your timezone. I’ve provided the equivalent timings for other time zones below as a reference, though they may be subject to errors:
- CDT (GMT -5): 8am to 10am
- EDT (GMT -4): 9am to 11am

- IST (GMT +5:30): 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Why are you conducting this course?
I’m passionate about the topic of emotional eating. I’m passionate about helping others rid their lives of emotional eating habits. I’ve been the slave of emotional eating for 10 years and it had caused me so much anguish. If you ask me, I wish there was a program or an online course like this which I could join back when I was still struggling with my eating issues. It would definitely have made my life much easier, happier, and stress-free.
However, the upside is that it has allowed me to identify a truly holistic solution to emotional eating which I have never seen before. Many courses and programs out there are either a partial solution (uses one of the prongs in my four-prong approach) or tries to address emotional eating from the surface, leading to a partial or non-resolution of the issue.
True resolution of emotional eating issues comes when you don’t have to enforce or control anything. You simply naturally eat healthily and normally, without any inclinations or desire to overeat or reach out for food when you don’t need to. Most people think they have overcome their emotional eating issues, when they are in fact, just repressing them. I’m here to help you achieve long-term resolution of your emotional/stress/binge eating issues.
Who should take this course?
I only want to work with people who are really serious about making a permanent change in their eating habits. People who are sick of turning to food as a response to emotions and/or life events. If you want to develop healthy eating habits and you want to free yourself from your eating issues, this is for you.
There are some clashes between the course schedule and my calendar. What should I do?
Don’t fret. I will be providing recordings of the course for attendees who can’t make it for specific weeks. Each week’s recording would be available for viewing for one week from the date of the session. This is to help the participants who already have prior engagements they need to attend.
Also, even if you can’t attend the session, I will be giving free e-mail consultation to any course participant who has questions in between the week’s modules. This consultation will last throughout the duration of the course.
I’m an alumni of last year’s course and I’m interested to retake this course again.
You are definitely welcome to! I’m offering an alumni rate for those of you who took part in last year’s course–joining the course again is a great way to reinforce the lessons you have learned and solidify your renewed relationship with food. You should have received an e-mail to the e-mail address you used to purchase the course last year. Let me know in the comments section if you didn’t receive the mail!
I’ve bought your stress eating program before.

Small Investment for a Life of Healthy, Conscious, Restraint-Free Eating
The cost of an eating disorder treatment on average is about $30,000 a month. Many patients require three or more months of treatment. And even then, they still need years of follow-up care.
Let’s say you are able (and willing) to fork out that amount of money for an eating disorder treatment.
Let’s say you proceed to undertake such a treatment. Would you then permanently resolve your emotional eating issue?
While these treatments have their merits, especially for those people who have serious food issues, they don’t necessarily create lasting change. Many patients need years of follow-up care after treatment. Some check back into the eating disorder facility after several weeks, months or years, because they have “slipped” and need to be guided back on track.
These treatments have their merits. However, true resolution of emotional eating comes when you naturally do not overeat nor think about eating when you are not hungry. Many of these treatments do not result in full resolution of the eating issues. They may result in partial resolution, but not the full resolution.
If you want to truly resolve emotional eating once and for all, you should strive to achieve a state where you naturally do not overeat nor think about eating when you are not hungry, just like a non-smoker feels nothing when he/she sees a pack of cigarettes lying next to him/her. This is what it means to have truly resolved emotional eating. Many courses and programs, unfortunately, do not help you to achieve this state.
My objective with this four-week, intensive, emotional eating course is to help you attain full resolution of your emotional eating problem, or at the very least, clear off a big chunk of your emotional eating issues.
The cost of this four-week emotional eating program is $238 USD only. That’s for four weeks of specialized coaching by me and four weeks of targeted attention with someone who has personally worked through emotional/stress/binge eating issues before. It’s also less than $30 per hour, which is about the price of five McDonald meals. By eating healthily starting from today, you will already save hundreds, if not thousands, every year from not eating excessively. Imagine this. No more binge eating at night. No more erratic eating urges. No more yo-yo dieting and beating yourself up by stuffing yourself with food. Put emotional eating behind you and remove yourself from this lousy emotional/stress/binge eating cycle. Sign up for the course today and get ready to live a life that is free and unchained from food. Restore your relationship with food to the way it should have been all along—one of neutrality, without binds, love, hate, or emotions.
Update Jul 27, 2013: Sign ups are now closed and we have a class of 13 participants!! Congratulations to those of you who have signed up! I’ll see you guys tomorrow, Jul 28!
I look forward to coaching you through your eating/food troubles over the next four weeks and helping you resolve them for life.
