4 New Ways to Stop Stress Eating
--Work-friendly ways to prevent binges--
1.) Email yourself every time you eat. Include circumstances - a tense conversation with your manager, a sudden deadline - and note how you were feeling (sad, stressed, panicked). Review the messages every Friday and look for emotional eating patterns. Create a plan for what you'll do differently next time.
2.) Instead of turning to food, email a buddy and tell him/her how you're feeling. Wait for a response before you head to the kitchen.
3.) Sip green or black tea before you reach for a snack; the drink contains theanine, an amino acid that increases levels of relaxing chemicals in the brain.
4.) Join an internet community for support, such as Prevention's emotional-eating forum.
