Yes!! I automatically think about eating something when I have a stressful moment - it has nothing to do with hunger! I eat for comfort. But I am trying to incorporate other behaviors that would take the place of eating. I grab a favorite book to read, make a phone call, turn on some music - anything that will divert my attention to something else. I am becoming much more aware of my habits and trying to replace the bad ones with better ones!

Yeah in stress I too tend to eat more. When we are in stress we feel hungry and we eat more than usual.
