'Crazy cravings': Nutritionist talks emotional eating – why we do it & how to stop


“With caffeine, like alcohol, if you have it on an empty stomach, it will have a greater effect on your hormones.”

If, despite these breakfast tips, cravings persist, Karen is “all about celebrating food” and doesn’t believe in cutting out sugar.

Rather, when experiencing a “crazy” sugar craving, she recommends buying a fresh cake rather than a processed one, or better yet baking it yourself.

“That way it becomes an event, whereas I think for a lot of us, we’re eating junk food without actually realising and not taking any pleasure from it.

“You will never be satisfied if you have a Dairy Milk bar, for example, because Dairy Milk have combined something that you never see in nature which is a high fat and high sugar food.”
