Emotional hunger has always been a huge problem for me. I find that lately I'm only thinking about food when I'm hungry. If I'm not physically hungry I question myself to find out what is really going on. Sometimes I can't figure out exactly what is bothering me at the moment. At that time I usually try to do something else to keep me out of the kitchen until things become clearer. As I do this more and more it becomes easier each time.
I find that a key to me not always thinking about food is just being busy with other things. I have been babysitting my niece now so now that all my focus is on her I truly only have time to think of food when I'm hungry.
