It might be more helpful for you for the short term to chew gum to keep your mouth busy :) Then find something really tactile for your hands to do - working with clay maybe.

exercise has helped right after work before everyone else gets home. A hobby to keep hands busy is helping

Water. Sometimes exercise helps.
I have found that I don't eat if I am sewing.
And, a lot of self-talk.
Tell yourself you are worth it.

I try to keep busy. But sometimes, if I'm off from work and lounging around the house I get the urge to graze between meals. Instead I go for a walk or put on a workout dvd or get in the pool.

Maybe find a hobby? Something to keep your hands busy and your mind occupied! Best wishes!

Hi All,
I'm a severe emotional eater. I eat all the time. I know it is an active choice but it doesn't feel like it to me. What do you turn to instead of food to keep yourself from going crazy?
