What feeds YOU is a Web-based experience in which people can share their stories, artwork, photos, and videos about their experiences with emotional eating. This platform provides both a public domain that attracts transient users, as well as the secure social networking site to be used for members of the what feeds YOU community.

Emotional eaters struggle with feelings of anxiety, loneliness, and social isolation. The question is whether a virtual environment can be created to meet that need for community and ongoing support, and primary field research, including formal and informal interviews, indicates positive support for such an online community. What feeds YOU attempts to answer that question.
