Some people respond to emotional issues by binge eating. Rather than using food as a way to mask your emotions, you may want to take a brisk 20-minute walk outside or even try some yoga. Writing a journal or speaking with a close friend can also help. Eating emotionally can start bad habits that lead to binging and can even bring about other emotions like extreme sadness.
