I have 2 main triggers...hunger and stress. If I allow myself to get too hungry I reach first for something sweet and stressful situations make me reach for sugar...like a drug, really. For a moment it makes me feel calmer but it doesn't take long for anger at myself to kick in and I end up feeling worse. So, my action plan is to eat when I first feel a little hungry instead of delaying and to stop keeping cash on hand when I'm at work because that makes it much easier to reach for a sweet fix when I get stressed at work.
