The role of emotion regulation in childhood obesity

In conclusion, encouraging effective ER could be a useful new approach for combating and treating childhood obesity. Nonetheless, ER intervention studies are needed to confirm the validity of this model in children. Implications for treatment:• Consider traditional weight loss methods and nutritional recommendations along with ER intervention. • Target barriers in the treatment progress such as shame and preoccupation with food by fostering greater self-esteem, resilience and body acceptance. • Families need to be aware of the emotional distress that overweight children suffer from. Consequently, the family should learn effective ER and conflict-solving. Implications for prevention:Target mental health, effective ER techniques and healthy lifestyle habits such as eating behaviour, already during childhood. A) By family-based community programs and working groups: • Support or teach parents on conflict and negative emotion management techniques• Actively involve parents and family members in changing their own behaviourB) By school-based programs:• Teachers can act as health agents • ER can be incorporated into the school curriculum: focus on learning and encouraging awareness and understanding of feelings, identifying internal strengths and learning effective coping skills  Click here to read the full paper. childhood obesity

Conclusion The experience of failure moments, the struggle with making choices, and negative self-esteem and body image all develop in a different way for each participant. When professionals treat participants by solely focusing on the core symptoms using a one-dimensional cognitive behavioral approach, they may overlook underlying (biological) interactions.

Alright, I admit it, it may be punny but it's not very funny. The point I'm trying to make is that grazing on food can be confusing and here's why. 50 shades of graze When you graze, there are many questions you can ask yourself. For instance...

Abstract Weight-based victimization (WBV) is a common form of bullying associated with maladaptive eating, and poor weight-related health. Although sexual and gender minority (SGM) youth experience a number of eating and weight-related health disparities, the link between WBV and these outcomes has not been investigated in this vulnerable population. Data came from the LGBTQ Teen Study, a national survey of SGM adolescents. Participants provided data to assess body mass index (BMI), WBV, sexual identity, gender identity, dieting, binge eating, stress, weight control behaviors, exercise, and stress (N = 9679). ...

Authors: Vigna L, Morelli F, Agnelli GM, Napolitano F, Ratto D, Occhinegro A, Di Iorio C, Savino E, Girometta C, Brandalise F, Rossi P Abstract Epidemiological data indicate that subjects affected by obesity have an increased risk of developing mood disorders. The relationship between obesity and mood disorders is bidirectional. We assessed whether a Hericium erinaceus treatment improved depression, anxiety, sleep, and binge eating disorders after 8 weeks of supplementation in subjects affected by overweight or obesity under a low calorie diet regimen. Looking for a possible clinical biomarker, we assessed the seru...

We examined the effects of the independent and combined effects of Zataria Multiflora supplementation and circuit resistance training (CRT) on selected adipokines among postmenopausal women. Forty-eight postmenopausal women were divided into four groups: Exercise (EG, n = 12), Zataria Multiflora (ZMG, n = 12), exercise and Zataria Multiflora (ZMEG, n = 12), and control (CG, n = 12). Participants in experimental groups either performed CRT (3 sessions per week with intensity at 55% of one-repetition maximum) or supplemented with Zataria Multiflora (500 mg every day after breakfast with 100 ml of water), or their combination...

ConclusionsThis short exposure therapy reduced snacking behavior, binge eating and weight more than a lifestyle intervention and is therefore a recommendable intervention for obesity and overeating disorders.

I went for a run because I had eaten a small, organic, dark chocolate cookie the day before and I felt that I had to punish myself. It was habitual for me to punish myself with strenuous, caloric compensation cardio whenever I felt guilty for enjoying life by eating tasty foods. When I placed first in a fitness competition, my fitness goals went up a notch. Winning the competition was one thing, but people complimenting me on my extra lean body pressured me to stay that way. I couldn’t allow myself to look “bigger” again, and “bigger” really meant not seeing my defined ab muscles. It was a su...

Conclusion. The audio-digital recording method provides a useful second opinion that can affirm the need for a different treatment intervention in these anxious patients. A second live assessment would have required additional clinic time and added patient burden. The audio-digital recording method is less burdensome than live second opinion assessments and might have utility in both research and clinical practice settings. Keywords: Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), anxiolytic medications, anxious symptoms, audio-digital recording, dual review, second opinions Anxiety symptoms are prevalent in most populations wher...
