As we can see, food is often tied into our emotions. While you can deal with the emotions directly, setting goals and focusing your energy on working toward that rather than food will help incredibly. With many people, excessive eating is a result of not feeling fulfilled creatively or otherwise. You can break this cycle by finding whatever it is that inspires you and bringing that out more in your life. Finding something that makes you feel artistic or productive is one way to encourage yourself to move forward on tasks other than eating. Since there are only so many hours in the day, finding something that truly calls out to you will divert much of your available time for eating into something which can generate real fulfillment.
Bestselling author and speaker, Tony Robbins, suggests that the questions that we ask ourselves can have measurable impact on our ability to be resourceful and generate ideas. By asking yourself questions which cause you to look for solutions and empowering answers, you'll find more choices available for you to take that are in line with what you want and where you want to go.
Still, food is not something that has to be looked at as bad. You can eat when you want to eat. The key is motivating yourself to have more of your attention on what you want to create and do. This will naturally allow you to eat a more balanced amount of food.
