Our expert says:
This is a well known phenomenon which has its roots in psychological problems. I would suggest that consult a clinical psychologist to get to the bottom of this reaction. You need to identify what psychological problems are causing this behaviour and to learn how to cope with them, without turning to food for comfort. You can find clinical psychologists in the Yellow Pages under 'Psychologists' or ask your gp to refer you. Once you have gained control of your emotional behaviour you can use a low-fat, high-fibre diet and exercise to shed those 5 kg.
