You've probably had rough moments at work as some businesses, and other industries are getting tougher and even more competitive than before. In one way or another, something's bound to come up, and you'll have to deal with it.

After everything's over, how do you cope with stress? Some people deal with stress through recreation, playing sports and games. Socializing is also good, as it allows people to connect. Eating can be a way to deal with stress too.

However, stress-eating might steer you away from the right kind of food. You might go on a full force binge-eating session of your favorite Foods.

These would probably be comprised of meals like potatoes and steak, beef casserole, and chicken pot pie. It might even get worse especially if you're still craving for ice cream or a chocolate bar.

Does this list satisfy you? You might want to think differently this time.
