In brief: What's eating you?
If you're using food to resolve emotional distress or conflict, keep in mind that emotional eating is a symptom of the problem, not "the" problem. It's important to identify what's eating "at" you, rather than focusing on food.
Identify the emotional triggers to the behavior and find new ways to respond to yourself. Therapy can be extremely helpful in this regard.

In brief: Counseling, group Rx
This is apparently a bigger problem than people admit.
Eating is often a reaction to stress. Good habits and a strict diet can help, but are often not enough so counseling and group therapy can provide that extra edge. Counseling, especially with your doctor or a psychiatrist can give you insight into why this is done, and group therapy can help by showing you others with similar problems.
