Many people suffer from emotional eating. This usually occurs when we are involved in a stressful situation. When this happens, we have two choices. The first choice is to give in to the craving and the second choice is to learn how to control emotional hunger. If you chose the latter of the two, here are a few ways which will help you stop emotional eating.

First step in eliminating emotional eating is to recognize true hunger. Basically, if you had eaten a couple hours ago and your stomach is not rumbling, then most likely you are not hungry. Learn to recognize whether your hunger is physical or emotional. Another way to reduce your chances for emotional eating is to look elsewhere for comfort.

For instance, if you feel emotional hunger coming on, instead of unwrapping a candy bar, go for a walk or treat yourself to a movie. Invest time in something that makes you feel good.

Also be sure that you don't keep unhealthy foods in your house. Try to keep high calorie foods away from your kitchen and remember to never go grocery shopping hungry. If you go shopping while hungry, you will purchase a plethora of foods which you would otherwise never eat. So be sure to go shopping after you had already eaten and be sure to purchase numerous healthy snacks. This way, in between meals, you can snack on fruit and veggies rather than chips.
