The Best Kept Secrets To Stop Stress Eating Once And For All

Between family, work and school, life can sometimes be overwhelming. Emotional eating often happens as a result of stressful times. Let’s face it, it’s a satisfying feeling to bite into that sweet chocolate bar or juicy cheeseburger when we’re feeling out of our comfort zone. But if you don’t start to control your binging, it’s going to start controlling your weight.

I have had a huge problem with stress eating in the past. When I used to work 2 jobs, I’d come home at a weird time in the morning and stuff my face with whatever was in my pantry. Anything fast and easy to make. (Which usually isn’t good for you)

Finding out where the stress stems from is a misconception when putting an end to emotional eating. Your body doesn’t care if your boyfriend or work is the cause of your stress. It’s all about being about being in control of your emotions by creating healthy habits.

I wanted to share with you guys my top tips to put an end to binging once and for all. These tips can steer anyone in the right direction to a healthy lifestyle.

Keep Junk Food Out of The House

Avoid buying cookies and ice cream next time you go grocery shopping. If these are in your kitchen, you won’t have a choice but to eat them. Stick to buying healthy whole foods like chicken, salmon, fruits and nuts. Whole foods give you proper nutrients and keep you full longer than junk food. Next time you want to binge, reach for an apple instead. However, beware of mindless eating on healthy foods as well because you can still gain weight if you consume too many calories.

Stay Hydrated

When you feel hungry, try to recall the last time you had any water. Your body could be trying to tell you that you’re dehydrated. Eating when you are thirsty isn’t uncommon. When you’re dehydrated, you feel tired. When you’re tired, you feel the need to fuel your body somehow and many people choose food. Also, try to drink a glass of water before every meal. 


Many people use eating as an excuse for “me time”.  I used to love sitting back on my couch with a hand full of jelly beans after a long day of work. In my mind, the added sugar allowed me to relax, when all it was doing was causing me to be more tired. Try reading a book or taking a long bubble bath. You could even do something you enjoy like painting or writing to get your mind off of food.

Meal Prep

Preparing your meals ahead of time is a great way to prevent binging. You can make all your meals and snacks for the week. Most of the time when you are hungry and don’t know what to eat, you’ll grab the healthiest snack from your cabinet. By having a plan, you’ll know what to eat every day.
