Stress Eating

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

HI friends. I've been really stressed out at work and I feel like stress eating. So far I've been doing good by identifying that I'm not hungry just stressed but I want to just eat and eat. Do you have any suggestions to curb stress eating? Thanks in advance for the advice!

    I know how hard it is. Try to pack healthy snacks, like an apple. Sip water, tea, coffee!

    I know it's the same advice you've heard 98372957 times, but if you can fit in even a 5 minute walk, it might help. And if not, just put your hand on your belly, sit back, take a deep breath and try to push your hand out with your breath in your belly. It has kept me from going bat crap on many occasions. Maybe it would help you chill and distract you for a bit to hopefully let the food craving pass.

    Stress eating sucks, but I have no doubts you can... and will!... conquer it!

    Sometimes I take a walk outside and that seems to help me.

    I am a repeat offender of stress eating. I find at work, if I only bring my healthy snacks and lunch for the day and nothing else, and no cash, I will not over eat.

    Find other things to distract your mind from eating.
    Stay away from the food area/ kitchen.
    Exercise or do activities that you really need to do.
    If you must eat eat healthy foods so that you have nothing to feel guilty about.
