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.

  1. I find brushing my teeth and using really powerful mouth wash help me curve the emotional eating… Food tastes so awful your forced to fined an other activity to express your feeling… that my 2cents.

    • 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.
