Stress Eating: Here’s How to See If You Do It.

The stresses and strains of everyday life can cause you to eat more, eat things to make you gain weight, and also eat between meals. If you don’t believe this or think you are immune from doing such a thing, why don’t you check it out.

You would also write down how many between meal snacks you had on that day and how much you ate at meal times, and what foods you ate for snacks and meals.
