  • This is a good article about stress eating, but not an answer for me. My overeating happens while I'm watching TV or reading in the evening. I will not be able to focus on the program because my mouth wants to taste and my throat wants to swallow. I can't get rid of the obsession until I eat and eat until my stomach hurts, then the obsession goes away.
  • BRAVO!! This is just what I needed to read. It was like he was in my head just a few weeks ago. I changed my thoughts on stress and life and with the Lords help, I am seeing things and people for who and what they are and not what I think or want them to be. Life is much easier this way.
  • Thank-you for these words of wisdom. You've seen directly into my heart and mind and these common sense suggestions provide a much-needed balance-check. I am also taping this to my wall, directly in front of my computer where I do all of my emotional eating. Next time I wanna reach for the Doritos, I'll have a look at "Minute 3: Putting Things in Perspective".
  • I love this article. I printed it and have it taped to my desk where I spend a lot of time every day. I will certainly try these de-stressers because I often do emotional eating. So thanks a lot.

  • Great Article, I now have to put this advise into practice.
  • Great article! A lot of my stress comes from time pressure to get everything done, so I really appreciate a 3 minute tool.
  • This article was very helpful. Due to some stresses in my life, I have been going through some struggles with my "will power" lately. This article, along with my determination to get leave all unhealthy carbs out of my diet for the next few days, has helped me to become grounded again and strengthened my resolve to manage the hurdles ahead. Thanks!

    I really appreciate this article! It came right at the time I am letting go of eating as a stress response and find that I no longer have a tool to handle stress effectively! I will give these techniques a try!
  • What a great article - I really needed to be reminded of these tips, not just for emotional eating habits, but for LIFE. Well-written, and appreciated! Thank you!
  • I thought there was a lot of truth to this article, some things are simple but , are things that people easily overlook in life . Some people speak these words to others but don't practice them regulary "wich can be quite common....." I feel these are good ideas to accept into our lives...
  • I don't think this article applies to all emotional eating.
    After losing my mom last December, i find myself trying to keep busy. I even took 3 summer classes to continue to keep myself busy. But with those classes over... I find myself cooking or snacking on the foods my mom and i always enjoyed.
    I don't want to face the "reality" of it because the reality is i lost half my family on that day. And the last real family member i have is a 15hr drive away, my sister, who is dealing with this equally as bad as i am.
    Sure, i know my mom wouldn't want me to feel this bad and i try to have good days. But at the end of the day, i am even more sad that my efforts to feel better haven't really worked.
  • I would like to share this with my weight loss group next time it's my turn to lead. Do I need special permission for that? Over the last 2 weeks I have toured countless nursing homes trying to come up with the right one for my mom. This is important, something that I have to get right. I'm printing the article to have close at hand.

    Thank you.
  • Great advice! I'm sharing this one with my teams!
  • What a wonderful article with excellent advice! We can all benefit by not being so hard on ourselves!
