Checking this book out that someone referred me to:

"We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible."
~C. Malesherbes~

"Your mind will be like its habitual thoughts; for the soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts."
Marcus Aurelius (121-180 AD)

I'm reading this book by a doctor and dietitian called Thin Again. It gets you to look into the reasons and past hurts that cause emotional eating.

It can be messy, but it's wonderful.

It's by two people named Halliday

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.
