I think the key is finding something you real enjoy (like exercising, reading, puzzles) so you can indulge yourself with that when you're alone instead of with food...

Hmm.I kinda have a similar situation. When I'm around people, I'm very conscious of how much I eat because I don't want to look like a pig. But when I'm by myself I tend to eat a lot more (even binge) because no one is there to see it or hold me accountable. I wouldn't call mine lonely eating, because I'm not eating because I'm lonely. I'm eating because I can't feel embarassed. I've already realized that my problems are due to my people-pleasing and wanting people to have a good opinion of me.

When I'm alone (which I am a lot!) I have a tendency to overeat...even binge. But when I'm with people I do really great. How do I overcome my "lonely" eating?
