    Sometimes I chew gum. There are a lot of different flavors of sugar-less gum now! I quit drinking coffee daily, because that was stressing me out. You might try that, or have less of it. Getting in a workout could help, for a lot of different reasons, one of them being that it helps you sleep better. Get enough sleep, try for at least seven hours a night. Take naps if you need to! If you can't help eating, eat healthy foods, with plenty of fiber, and get plenty of water. Women are supposed to have about 25 grams of fiber a day.

    Be sure and click on the arrow at the bottom of the page:

    Everyone has given you some great ideas. My biggest are either drink some water or tea or go for a walk and find a way to distract myself.

    I have the opposite problem. I can't eat when I'm stressed. When I'm stressed, I walk.

    I am a stress eater and I have just tried to lower the calories I do consume when it does happen. So I will eat fruits and veggies and just try to get past the momment.

    Try to eliminate stress triggers, drink water to help control cravings, have a healthy snack (an actual snack, not a mini-meal) on hand and make set portions you can have, even a light activity to distract yourself. Good luck to you!

    emoticon Ask yourself what's "eating" you.
    Get a hot cup of tea.
    Go for a walk.
    Call a good friend.

    This takes practice, practice, practice.
