Emotional Eating

So I know we all probably do this to some extent.<br><br>
I apparently want to snack when I am anxious or nervous. I have realized this a lot lately, as we've had some stuff going on on in our lives causing some nerves.<br><br>
And the urge to snack on cheetos, m&ms etc is almost overwhelming. I'm actually eating the big bowl of sliced bell peppers and FF ranch I brought in, but if I had a dollar, I'd probably be eating something worse.<br><br>
I don't know how to deal with this stuff.

I am and have always been an emotional eater. What's made the biggest difference for me is to not have a single thing on-hand that I will gorge on and later feel bad about.
Ditto Meri - I also found that I'm more likely to emotionally eat if I'm not busy doing something else. So I start a massive cleaning kick or get out of the apartment and on my bike/out for a run/window shopping -- anything to keep myself occupied.
