What Kind Of Eater Are You?

Understanding your relationship with food can help you make healthier choices and feel more in control of your diet. That's why we've created a "What Kind of Eater Are You" quiz specifically for women over forty who are overweight. By answering a few simple questions, you'll get a better sense of your eating patterns and habits. Whether you're an adventurous eater, a mindful eater, or a traditional eater, this quiz can help you gain insight into your relationship with food and take steps towards a healthier, happier you.



It's time to end the struggle and enjoy food again!

We learn emotional eating patterns, often in childhood, and can go on to use food as a reward, for comfort, or even as self-punishment.
It's not always that easy to "unlearn" these patterns of emotional eating, but with the right support, it certainly is possible. Knowing why and how you eat can help you make positive changes and improve your relationship with food.
