Doctors David Samadi and Marc Siegel of the FOX News Medical A Team explain the connection between emotional states and appetite and what steps people can take to refrain from emotional eating.

According to Dr. Siegel, emotional eating is largely responsible for the obesity epidemic in America. This is due to the fact that it that it compels people to eat, even when their body is not hungry. He goes on to point out that there is a proven chemical relationship between fatty foods and emotional happiness. Studies show that chemicals released into the body by fatty foods actually reduce the negative emotional impact of depression and stress, making them addictive for people under emotional duress.

Dr. Siegel states that the first step is identifying that you have a tendency to eat emotionally. Next, it's vital to replace the "comfort" foods, such as ice cream, pizza, and chocolate with healthier alternatives like hummus and vegetables.

Dr. Samadi echoes those sentiments and adds that having activities and routines such as walking or cleaning to help work off the negative emotions causing the eating can make a big difference as well.

You are the bomb! That's what the young kids say today about something that is simply the best, over the top, outstanding.  I was your 3rd and last robotic prostatectomy on Wednesday, Dec. 5th at Mt. Sinai Hospital and you had a tough time locating the walnut-sized gland...


It has been nearly two weeks since Dr. Samadi performed my SMART prostatectomy!  Every day since the surgery  Dr. Samadi and his skill as a surgeon have soared in my estimation. I feel humbled and privileged to have experienced such great care.
