Do you eat too much? Some eat because they have problems or stressed. Are you the type that over eats when under emotional stress or job pressure?

I certainly agree its not a very good idea to put food in your mouth especially when you are stressed. Perhaps you will need to be think of something else to keep busy and try to break that bad habit. Do it slowly so eventually you get used to the new habit of not eating while you feel pressured. Thank you.

I understand your situation, the stressfull nature of a call center job in addition to being immobile for at least 8 hours a day does not help with your food intake at all. Its either we eat too much or too little. Most resort to former as it seems to relieve pressure more than not eating too much. Thank you for sharing.

Usually I have 3 meals a day. That's good to keep my stomach full so usually I don't really crave for food in between meals. However, there are times when I require a small snack in betweeen meals. That happens because my main meal was probably too little. Thankfully, I rarely eat too much despite emotional or work stresses because my body will naturally make me feel ill when I've had too much and that's when I'd stop eating.

Too many!! I live in the country with my husband and 6 kids. In the summer it's not so bad because there are plenty of things to do but in the witer it's awful. Four out of the six kids have ADHD so they have to be watched all the time. Lots of the time you end up sitting in a chair watching them play and are bored so what do I do? I eat! I don't really crave food when I am stress out for me it's more of a bordem issue.
