Hi, for one of my New Years resolutions I am trying to be healthier and eat better. I have noticed when I get stressed I eat everything in sight. Its horrible, really. I don't know how to stop it.
Yesterday was kinda rough for me, work wise, and I ended up coming home, working out hard for two hours, and then still ate baklava and Christmas sweets that were left over.
I do good during the day because I'm preoccupied like I ate Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and chicken (no skin) for dinner. For lunch I had a low sodium, low fat can of progress soup with two cups of Brussels sprouts I added to it. With a tortilla.
I never seem to have time for breakfast so its usually just green tea.
So I try to not eat when I'm stressed but some days I just binge out on the stuff. Any ideas?
Thank you & Happy Early New Years lol

Binge eating is a very common coping mechanism when for an individual under immense amounts of stews. Believe me- I know that all too well. I have an Undiagnosed genetic disorder, I take 17 credits/semester, I'm on the board of directors of an national non-profit organization and I'm a tutor in my university's writing center. Plus, my relationship with my immediate family is extremely strained at the moment.
For many individuals, food tastes good and distracts him or her from the pain the stress is causing. What you need to do is find a healthier substitution that will fulfill the same need that binge eating currently fulfills. Good luck on your new year's resolution :)0
