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.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
