Massage is a much better choice than a cupcake. I love massage and go about twice a month.

Thanks all!

I ended up getting a massage instead. Not as good as a cupcake, but oh well :P

Feeling good about hanging in there and staying on track! Thanks so much for all the supportive comments :)

I think exercise helps with stress.
What did you end up doing!

You know I always say coffee. But I mean decaf. I do not drink regular coffee. I agree with Birgit.

I always try to keep some cooked chicken, lunch meat, cheese, hard boiled eggs, etc. in my refr. If I feel the "need" to eat something for whatever reason, usually besides hunger, I'll have a piece of cheese or something that I have.

I'm better off staying away from anything that makes me think of something I shouldn't have, such as Atkins bars (digestive issues from sugar alcohols) "low carb" desserts, etc. I find it easier to take "dessert" out of my vocabulary and no longer try to find substitutes which usually aren't as good as the real thing, then I still want the real thing.. It's just easier for me that way. And I don't keep those things in my house.

Cupcake ... NO!

Atkins bar (pick one with the fewest carbs, about 15 grams), cut in pieces, then each one with a little bit of unsweetened peanut butter ...YES!

This coming a little late, maybe it will help someone next time.
I first try to determine if I'm just stressed or stressed and hungry.
If I'm just stressed a cup of decaf with cream might help, or even herbal tea. I would stay away from regular coffee because it will cause your liver to release glucose (sugar) into your blood stream, not helpful any more than eating sugar.
If I'm stressed and hungry I have some nuts and/or a cup of soup or broth that's salty and spicy. It helps to have emergency foods in the freezer or otherwise nearby to go to in times of need. Bouillon cubes might work. If you have a sweet tooth that needs tamed I would go for fruit that has a lot of fiber and water but also tastes sweet (water melon, pear) in moderate quantities together with some protein or fat (nuts, full-fat yogurt). Making some low-carb muffins with a low-cal sugar replacer like Xylitol, stevia or a chicory-based sweetener like "Just like sugar" could work if you stick them in the freezer to pull out as needed. Definitely better for you than Atkins bars.

I try to find a substitute for whatever I'm craving. Maybe a protein bar (sugar-free).

Don't know if you are doing Atkins or if you are in Induction Phase. The first time I cheated, I found out it gave me a headache for the entire next day. Wasn't worth it.

Being stressed is not fun. I totally understand wanting something to comfort yourself.

If you just HAVE to stress-eat at least make it on-plan - nuts, chicken wings, coffee or tea.

Labour is prior to, and independent of capital. Capital is only the fruit of labour, and could never have existed if labour had not first existed. Labour is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

I feel seriously stressed, and I'm desperately craving a cupcake :(

I hate having so much stress and so little money! [endrant]
