I would suggest you start getting yourself into a routine. When you get home from work do spend some time unwinding. Try writing in a journal. Then figure out what you are going to have for dinner. Make it and enjoy it. Do ALL the clean up. Then tell yourself the kitchen is closed until breakfast. Do you exercises while watching an evening television program (I know most people have at least a few shows they like to watch daily). Then get ready for bed.
For me I have to tell myself the kitchen is closed until breakfast/noon/snack/dinner. Having the mindset of the kitchen being open and closed helps me to find other things to do. If I see something I want to eat I tell myself that I'll work it into the rotation of food. This way I'm not telling myself "no" which only makes me want that particular food even more.
I hope this helps :)

Today has been a really bad day. Found out terrible news thats making my fathers passing even harder to deal with, upset at a sibling, not feeling well. And stupidly i just decided to turn to food. I really need to break this habit! (Doesnt happen unless ive had a TERRIBLE day but it happens.) In the past 30 minutes i have had 1/2 a pb sandwich, and 3/4 pack of ramen noodles. I wasnt even hungry when i ate it. So now my stomach hurts. :(
How can i retrain myself to NOT turn to food after a bad day?
