How can you get help for emotional eating?

ANSWER

Sometimes developing alternative habits or distracting yourself from eating isn’t enough. Try meditation or counseling, or talk to your doctor to see what resources and techniques they recommend to help you handle emotions and stress. As you make positive changes, reward yourself. Doing so helps you keep up the good work.
