    Default I can't stop eating due to anxiety.

    I have a lot of plans on hold at the moment and I can't stop eating. Maybe it's stress eating. Not sure this will be good for my physical goals, but I feel like I can start healthy again tomorrow. There's always that thought. Has anyone binge-eat fruits? Or do you have recipes that will make me less guilty of eating so much?

    Anxiety and stress manifest themselves in different ways.
    It's really hard to combat especially in these weird times.
    I can only suggest that trying to eat some good protein first and foremost - even when you feel the need to snack - might be helpful.
    It will fill you up more quickly and be better for you than any junk snacks.
    We have lots of summer fruit available at the moment and I love them all but try to limit myself to one piece a day because of the sugar content.
    I cut up carrot and celery sticks and grab some of these when I feel the need for a snack. It's never because I am hungry - more that I am bored.
    If I am really honestly hungry then I look for some protein and eat it properly.
    I still keep a record of everything that I eat and still weigh and measure my food. It keeps me in check when I know that I have to record everything that goes into my mouth :-)
    During our lockdown I took up crocheting again. I'm not very good but it gave me something to focus on and I managed to make a blanket for our new grand daughter. Is there something that you like to do, or have always wanted to learn to do that you could try? It might keep your mind occupied.

    Hopefully someone else will come along with some other ideas.

    Hang in there.

    Kiwi gave some good suggestions that I think will help me as well. I used to be a big reader and had really slowed down on the amount of books that I normally read. I'm not much of a television watcher, but normally have it on for the noise factor. I'm going back to my reading and this helps me stay out of the kitchen and eliminates needless snacking--as Kiwi surmised, mainly due to boredom. Being home so much because of Covid is affecting all of us in different ways. I agree with the suggestion. Try to find something that will keep you busy and occupy your time. Tracking your food intake will allow you to SEE what you're doing day to day.

    This addiction is hard to deal with. This takes time. However, you can eat vegetables and fruits. It's much better than stress-eating chips and burgers.

    I often overeat because of stress. When I'm nervous, food helps me calm down and come to my senses. Because of my frequent stress and anxiety, I gained seven extra pounds, which greatly affected my figure. It's hard for me to cope with my problems. Quite often, I am depressed for days at a time. Then something joyful happens that lifts my spirits for a short time. My condition is related to problems in my personal life. Recently I realized that I need therapy. I signed up for online consultation with a psychologist. We continue to work on my condition, and I hope to make progress. If you also need psychological help, check it out.
