I'm not much of an emotional eater, particularly the older I get. Just don't eat like I used to.

I can't turn to food for therapy, because I am a food addict. No statement made about anybody else here. I'm only talking about me.

Usually by the end of a session I have completely lost my appetite, which lasts for a couple days.

A few days later, I eat a pint of ice cream. Which evens things out, I suppose.

I eat dinner after session. Usually we go out because I'm too emotionally exhausted to cook. But I don't eat my sessions away.

I was usually in a state of self-destructive frustration and homicidal anger when I left. Eating was not my go to.
