Psych Central

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been struggling with stress eating lately.

(I should point out that that’s not me over there to the left. I keep my nails better manicured, and I usually have less facial hair.)

It wasn’t until fairly recently (after I’d gained a few pounds and noticed a box of my favorite Kashi bars wasn’t going as far as it used to) that I realized I was stress eating.

After some research (and extra time on the treadmill), I came up with a plan to tackle emotional eating.

It’s more of an outline, really: Learn what you’re dealing with, replace it with something healthy, and eliminate or learn to manage the issue causing the emotional eating.

    • What a great idea! I normally brush my teeth around 8pm as my way telling myself to stop snacking and drink water only. I can see this being a really effective method to curve the emotional eating.
