If you find yourself charging through a family bag of crisps in one sitting or polishing off a large bar of chocolate most evenings, you may be falling in to a comfort eating trap.
A few healthy snacks here and there are fine, but over-eating processed foods due to stress or unhappiness not only makes you feel bloated, tired and uncomfortable, it is also one of the biggest causes of weight gain.
