                                                                                                                                      2. The fact that turning to food is a natural response when emotional (i.e. from birth we are consoled by food)
                                                                                                                                        1. How comfort eating is therefore normal, but what is not normal is the quantity or type of food,

                                                                                                                                          2. Why can we not stop ourselves from stress eating even when we know the advice on how to avoid it?
                                                                                                                                            1. How can we help the person who just cannot resist turning to food?
                                                                                                                                              1. What I'm trying to get at here is that there are loads of articles that are trying to address the problem of stress eating by simply saying "Stop using food as your emotional crutch". The thing is, someone can read the same advice over and over again, so be fully aware of what they are doing wrong and what they should be doing, but this doesn't stop them from giving into to food. What can we advise this person to do so that they really heed the advice they are given and can break their stress eating habits.
                                                                                                                                                1. One possible answer to this is to attack the problem from the other end- i.e. from the stress side as opposed to the food side,. So rather than focusing on tools for how they can stop stress eating, emphasise the importance of understanding why they are stress eating and focus on dealing with their stress. Because thinking about it, if this person is stressed and wants to comfort eat, it is going to cause them more stress to not comfort eat. Stress therefore needs to be dealt with as a separate entity.
                                                                                                                                                  1. Provide taxonomy of the best foods you can eat when stress and why
                                                                                                                                                    1. Is there a way of actually eating something that is calming?
                                                                                                                                                      1. ie. counting the times you chew
                                                                                                                                                        1. Taking a certain amount of breaths in between each bite
                                                                                                                                                          1. Lighting a scented candle and dimming lights in room?
                                                                                                                                                              1. Self-empathy exercises to do during and after eating to alleviate guilt and cultivate an "Its ok" attitude, preventing even more stress.
                                                                                                                                                              2. Popcorn challenge
                                                                                                                                                              3. The idea here is that what you resist will ultimately persist. Stress eaters therefore need to make their habits work for them. They need comfort food for comfort, so the best way to improve their relationship with food is to make really healthy choices when they stress eat. So to teach them to turn to foods that are nurturing and healing as opposed to crappy foods.
                                                                                                                                                                1. This will help alleviate the guilt they feel after eating and it will change the relationship they have with their body from abusive to nurturing- a step towards self-empathy
                                                                                                                                                              4. These people cannot resist because they cannot face their stress.
                                                                                                                                                                1. How to learn sit with their stress
                                                                                                                                                                  1. This comes back to self-empathy: people feel stress as a result of pressure. Pressure results from wanting to fulfil standards. Self-empathy can help people to recognise that they cannot always fulfil standards but that this is ok.
                                                                                                                                                                    1. Mindfulness helps you to see problems as separate from you and fleeting.
                                                                                                                                                                    2. Take stress on a date
                                                                                                                                                          2. What are the causes of stress eating
