This helps my struggle
I read this: Between stimulus and response is our greatest power—the freedom to choose." This is what I focus on. When I feel like emotional eating (almost everyday), i try to choose to do something else. Anything else that can distract/fill my mind/time until the craving goes away. Sometimes its as easy as just walking out of the kitchen, most its doing something else that occupies my brain and body (reading doesn't work for me). I've cleaned out drawers, paired socks, washed floors, danced to my favorite music, exercised, and at night I just gone to bed early sometimes.
There is a psychological reason for emotional eating and it has made the cycle hard to break. But like exercise and my body its a work in progress.
