Emotional Eater


Helpful tips to help with stress eating:

  1. Practice mindful eating. Know that your craving may be a result of a stressful event, and then ask yourself, are you truly hungry? Wait a few minutes before eating.

  2. Find healthier options. If you still feel the need for a snack, consider a lower-calorie, lower-fat option than what you may have previously chosen.

  3. Watch portion size. Instead of taking the whole box with you, put a snack-size amount on a plate. Check the package to see what one serving size is and try to stick to that.

Here are some healthy snacks I enjoy:

  • Something Sweet: Cut up an apple and spread some nut butter on it. The combination of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fat should help curb your appetite and satisfy your need for a sweet.

  • Something Savory: Consider adding hummus to deviled eggs for a lower-calorie, high-protein snack option.
