Thank you so much!!!!! Report
I wish I would have read this yesterday. After increasing my activity successfully for a few days last night I thought I would make this awesome looking recipe for a dessert. I went wild and out of control over these little cups of yogurt and fruit mixed with brown sugar. It was awful. I ate all four I had made and afterwards wondered what had happened. Report
Thanks for this! I am constantly fighting my emotional side and the last few days I have been losing the battle. But after readign this I feel renewed to keep fighting. Report
This article was so helpful. It gave me tools to deal with emotional eating. Thanks. Report
Thanks Dean! I saved this article to favorites!

I have been fighting this battle for the longest time. My weak will power has been no match for the "Beast". My weight started rising, my self esteem started falling, I gave up on myself and accepted defeat believing I would never be able to win my weight battle.

Dean, you have given me new hope, encouragement and a strategy to be victorious! Report
This is a great article. I am going to print it and put it near my PC, on my refrigerator. Excellent advice. Report
Wow. I just blogged about this the other day, almost in tears. What timing! I wrote about the fact that I feel I'm in some heavy weight battle, losing, falling. But I culminated my blog with my own personal 'Over-Eating Action Plan' which had a few things-to-do this article mentioned. This is solidifying that I'm doing the right things. I like thinking of the emotional eating episodes as "a beast" just as afraid of me as I am of it, or as "a child just awoken from a nightmare" in need of quick comfort. It paints the picture that there's an end in site through such turbulent times. That vision helps a great, great deal... Report
This is powerfully simple advice!!!I'm going to reread it until I own it. Thanks so much. Report
As someone being treated for Depression this is something I fight with. This article is a great start towards working on emotional eating.

I love the tactics. It makes me feel like I am doing something. That's a feeling I find powerful and motivating. Report
Ahh, so true...thanks for the reminder! Report
I just lucked on this article right after I gave the Beast control! Thinking of a best reminds me of the child with nightmares being comforted by a parent. I had childhood nightmares that still haunt me at times, and now that I can use this analogy I think I can bring up enough imagery to defeat the Beast. Thanks for a great article. Report
This article was very timely for me. I have been having a very difficult time with emotional eating lately. Thank you. Report
Thank youuu so much, I enjoyed every bit of this article. I struggle a lot with emotional eating, especially during the late evening hours and my Beat can be quite demanding and consistent. But thx to your article I have some tools to defeat it! Report
I don't think of it as a "beast" because it's hard to empathize with a beast. I think of it as my inner three-year old who is unhappy, confused, doesn't know what she really wants, and is on the verge of a tantrum. The points about it having a short attention span and being distractable are spot on and very useful. Thank you! Report
Thank you so much for writing this! That is EXACTLY what happens to me. When it happens there is no caring. If I only cared for an instant I could stop myself. Thank you! You may have just saved my entire journey with this article! I intend to save it and use it!!!!! Report
