That is because you are trying to fill a void that has nothing to do with food. You know that food does not give you happiness or love; that is just a food. So, why do you look for a food when you’ down? What you need to do is to get to the root of the problem and address it.

Generally, you should eat when you feel hungry, and you should stop when you are full. Before you start eating – you do not need to wait until official meal times. Listen to your body and what it tells you.
