If you are a comfort eater, you probably learned it as a child.
Experts suggest you likely got comfort eating from your parents. For example, if you fell off your bike as a child your mom would say come in and have a treat to make you feel better.
They also say there are things you can do to stop it.... like, trying to focus on the moment rather than always reflecting on the past; or thinking ahead to the future.
And they recommend dumping unhealthy snacks from your workplace and home.
