Emotional Eating is a common, albeit unhealthy, coping mechanism. So many #people do it. I mean, raise your hand if you ever use emotional eating to cope with stress, anger or sadness – believe me, my hand is raised, too. It can make you feel better in the short term, but in the long term it feels worse, and it certainly doesn't do anything for what you're actually feeling at the #time. There are so many better ways to cope with negative feelings – but first you have to stop emotional eating, and here are several ways you can do that.
1. Distract Yourself
If you find yourself about to start an emotional eating binge, distracting yourself might be the best option. Do something else, like take a walk, #read a book, or even chew on a toothpick. If it's an oral fixation kind of thing, try a lollipop or a piece of gum.
