Emotional stress can create some of the strongest food cravings.  They tend to hit when you are weak, and it is near to impossible to fight off the urge to turn to your comfort foods.  When facing a difficult problem,  the stress builds, and you turn to food for comfort foods and strap on that feed bag. 

Emotional eating can sabotage your weight-loss efforts. The emotion and stress lead us to overeat, and it is often high-calorie and carbohydrate-rich and fatty foods that have limited nutritional value. All is not lost because you can regain control of your eating habits and stay on track with your health and weight-loss goals.

The bottom line: You can remain in control of your comfort food intake.  Recognize your triggers and avoid them.  Food also serves as a distraction, and you need to find another way to fight the stress.
