The moment I realize that's the reason I'm eating (and not because I'm hungry) I stop... take a deep breath in and let it out as I count to five.

I dive into something to keep my mind busy elsewhere. Or focus on what is stressing me to look for ways to solve it or lessen it (if that's possible).

Sometimes I'll take a few minutes to plan my next meal out, so if I go to absentmindedly grabbing something from the kitchen again I can stop myself and say "Nope. You already have your dinner planned out. So you gotta wait until then."
