Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2014/Comfort eating and negative emotions
Hello, I realise it is quite close to the due date, but I am going to suggest some things for your topic as you may not have caught up to writing it all out yet. I researched quite a bit on why people eat chocolate when they are depressed, and found that having low serotonin causes a craving for carbohydrates (there's plenty in chocolate!). This is called the serotonergic hypothesis. They talk a bit about it in a paper at this link... http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S016503270600084X It has been cited quite a few times and an interesting read. All the best and hope this finds you well :) U3083503 (discuss • contribs) 12:54, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi there! What a great paper - it addresses a question that many people ask. I made a couple of small grammatical changes (for example, I changed it's to its) but just wanted to let you know I found it really interesting. --U3090859 (discuss • contribs) 07:00, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
You have done a great job in defining what comfort eating, I was a little unsure if there was a definition , and there is. You have done really well with differentiating emotional hunger and physical hunger. Your layout is really great, very easy to read the sections of information, and I like how you have broken it up in the sections you have, this has made it really easy to absorb the information. A suggestion for the headings you use Gross' Model of Emotional Regulation you only need a capital letter at the start, so it should be Gross model of emotional regulation. I checked your other headings and you have only done this once, so you can change it quickly . overall I really like how you have approached the chapter well done.--U3080857 (discuss • contribs) 01:54, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Such a fascinating topic! I like the way the information is divided and formatted, it makes it very easy to read. I made a few grammar/spelling edits but nothing major. I noticed a few references weren't filled in yet, under Eating and Emotion. The take home message section is a good sum up of everything in the chapter. It's looking really good!

Looking good so far! I really like what you have done with the structure. The colored boxes really add some structure to the chapter and it makes it easier to follow. I just have one small suggestion. In order to make it a little nicer to read, or to link it all together, consider adding more images. It will make it more readable; lets be real, most of us get scared from blocks of words!
Also, in one of your tables, maybe make the first column in bold writing to separate it from column 2. Just makes it a little nicer and easier to distinguish. (Mechanism vs Strategy columns you have in your theoretical framework section)
And lastly, consider linking with other book chapters within your texts. Saves us from scrolling down to internal links and losing the spot we were reading! :)
Other than that, great job. The context seems to really incorporate the question.
Good luck finalizing it all. Cheers
Hey, I have just read your book chapter and and it raises some really good/interesting points. I enjoyed how you defined emotional hunger in contrast to physical hunger and I will say I can defiantly relate :). Your overall book chapter layout and presentation is also visually appealing and stimulating so good job and goodluck! --Bella_wilson (discuss • contribs) 4:38, 27 October 2014
Hiya, Good read, i feel the overview is a bit indepth, looks like an introduction but seems to go from an indepth start, then back to very basic definitions. Suggest a shorter intro that is still indepth but doesn't lose the reader. If not still a good read just an opinion :) Good luck --u3068311 (discuss • contribs)
Hey, Good Work! reading through the chapter made looking at comfort eating much easier to read and distinguish itself from physical hunger. the layout was visually appealing and i enjoyed the small amount of scientific terms and descriptions, which makes this chapter easy to read and understand, whilst keeping the reader engaged! Great work and Good luck!
