Music helps us motivate in a lot of things. Some people study for exams while listening to music, others would put on their iPods while running the treadmill. However, can music help us handle our eating problems?

Tons of research have proven how music influences our moods. It can distract you from unpleasant thoughts or emotions; help you remember the good ol’ times when you have a bad day; gets you inspired whenever you are bored.
