The divorce process is challenging for multiple reasons and if you are struggling through a tough divorce, you are likely experiencing various hurdles in your personal and even professional life. Sometimes, people struggle with overeating due to divorce-related stress (and some people also have difficulty with an eating disorder, such as those who lose too much weight because they think that their appearance played a role in the end of their marriage).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 782,038 couples got divorced in 2018. Unfortunately, some likely struggle with overeating, which can give rise to other hardships, such as health problems, damage to self-esteem and financial complications.

Moreover, some people benefit from reaching out to a counselor or a personal trainer for support, as well as friends and loved ones.
There is an abundance of information available online, but make sure you check a source’s reliability before following any advice. Moreover, making your divorce easier will likely help you eat healthier and feel better overall.
