We are all so different when it comes to what works for each of us,but here is what worked for me,at least partially:

many of my eating habits were formed during childhood.So for example,I used to have butter cookies and tea with my family in the afternoons.My parents passed away a few yrs ago.So whenever I was stressed,I would turn to butter cookies and tea.Once I realized I was equating relaxation with eating butter cookies,and trying to recreate the same safe,happy ,carefree part of my childhood,I was able to control my stress differently than with food.It took a while to 'relearn',but now I know I can relax without food.It wasn't easy at all,but with consistency,comes the results.
