    chew on carrots, cucumbers and nuts instead? crunchy and nutritious. btw getfit says chewing on apple skin works.

    Just go do the Crossfit workout of the day, take a long hot shower and then make a list of all the things you don't like about the guy follwed by a good nights sleep.

    I've been having the same issue. I get really down and just start binging, and not just alittle, but massive stuff. 2 pints of ben and jerrys and a whole pack of oreos, pack on m&ms, and pack of white chocolate cookies was my bing last week.

    Best stress relief I've had recently is riding my motorcycle up through the moutains. Strap on the tight leather, and go for a spirited ride. When your going 90mph into a corner you don't have time to think about the stress of life. You have to stay focused or you die, so that works for me.

    Take it out in the gym...

    ...another way is to taunt the ice cream and hurt its feelings by refusing to eat it.

    Buy the pint instead of the half-gallon.

    Caveat: This assumes that you don't WANT to be eating ice cream because of your emotions.

    If you're eating ice cream because you're emotionally distressed, you need to do two things:

    1) Disconnect the food = main source of pleasure reaction. It's ice cream, not LOVE. There are a ton of approaches to this (research into habit changing and take your pick of Tony Robbins, Stephen Covey, you name it...). Moderation can also help a LOT. Personally, I'm pretty strict when it comes to diet but I find that savouring a single square of 70% cocoa chocolate (take tiny little bites like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory Book) can quell most cravings. Try to make sure you're not consuming lots of fat and protein around this time as well; ideally you want the chocolate consumed in isolation, at least 1/2 hour apart from any other eating.

    2) Find something else pleasurable to do. Whether it's exercise, reading, games, hell even masturbation -- find something else that pleases you and do that instead of eating.

    I do two things if I get stressed out.

    First thing is spirited drives through the mountain roads, nothing like going really fast through some turns. And these switch backs in the mountains where I live, oh my way too much fun. Then again, i'm a speed junkie so anything fast that keeps me on my toes normally gets my stress back down.

    Second thing, Start hitting the heavy bag.

    One time I took out the Grand Am and topped it out for over a three mile stretch. Then I went through some winding roads and took the corners so hard that I could feel the tires slipping. It was wicked and it worked, but the consequences are severe.

    Except for when my first cut went horribly wrong and somehow morphed in a bulk, when I get stressed I get tired and almost hate food.

    Also when im stressed, my goals seem to ring in my head so much more, but thats just me.
    Complication breeds desperation.

    For the sake of your diet you might not want to make this a regular part of your carb load. I know it's less fun, but that much fat really makes UD2 less sucessful.

    It isn't. My normal carb load is a bit of serial to satisfy my sweet tooth, and mostly milk, bagels (a lot of them) and pasta. I was going through a bag of Tomas's bagels a day for the carb loading. The pizza, I woke up at 12pm and had a craving for a whole pizza, it was tough but I ate it all.
