I think most of us do it at least a little bit. The trick is to recognize the behavior and have alternate things to do ready to go.

-google first. ask questions later.

Don't eat out of boredom, or as entertainment. Eating has side effects.

I am trying to stop eating "just because". A few days ago I was wanting to eat when I wasn't hungry. It was after snack and before dinner. I thought about it then decided to drink a bottle of water. It satisfied me and I didn't eat anything until dinner.

I agree! I work hard to avoid the boredom snacking, so I know all about that. For me, it's important to keep myself busy to avoid that boredom and I always plan a few hundred calories for evening snacks. Do you have some strategies that help you?

It's not always about hunger. I sometimes eat to avoid getting hungry and off track. The prevents overeating later. Then sometimes I do snack and eat out of boredom.
