Had a bad day at work? School has been hectic? Your significant other stressing you out? Or maybe an upcoming event is making you anxious?

Whatever the case, it's time to eat.

These stressful disruptions to the Emotional Eater's day are alleviated by food-oftentimes, in the form of fat-soaked foods and sugar-laden drinks, to boot.

While the Emotional Eater is consistent with workouts, their results don't seem to match up with how hard they're training. Emotional Eaters let emotions lead them down a path of binging and caving into societal pressures-only to feel guilty about these actions after the fact.

The most powerful tool for the Emotional Eater is awareness. Just because one area of life seems out of control doesn't mean you need to let that seep into all other facets.

Before binging, ask yourself "why" three times before making a decision. Most of the time, you will realize it's not hunger-it's boredom and a need to escape uncomfortable, stressful situations while seeking short-lived pleasure.

Reframe your mindset regarding food and stress. It's essential to seek a healthier alternative to eating as your stress-relieving outlet. These alternatives can include going for a walk, breathing deeply, going to a yoga class, reading, or simply talking with a friend.

Another tool is to ensure you don't keep any snacks on hand that you've had trouble with in the past. Out of sight, out of mind!
