I think emotional eating is a way to escape what a person doesn't want to deal with...but not dealing with what is bothering someone doesn't get rid of the issue. so the cycle continues.
acknowledge what is bothering you figure out if you can change the situation think about how someone you admire would deal with the issue ask someone you trust for advice or seek professional help have an open mind and be willing to change how you feel about it.

I like walking. Walking is not only great cardiovascular exercise, it's a great way to reduce stress too.
If you find yourself eating emotionally because you're stressed out, you need to find better ways to vent your stress that don't involve food.
Walking has always helped me reduce stress. But you could also, sit and sip a cup of tea. hit the gym for a hard workout. put on your head phones and listen to your favorite music. You can sit and blog/write out your feelings. Writing can be very cathartic.
And yes, if things are really bad, you should consider professional help. if someone is eating too much because they are stressed out, it's not what we are eating that's the problem, the problem is what is eating away at us. some times, a person has to face some hard truths in order to stop from eating emotionally.
