Boredom eating at work

I have a client coming next week who needs help with boredom eating at work. She's on a diet plan, and when she's at home, she has no desire to snack at home because she has so much to do. She doesn't really like the work she does so she finds that she eats from the time she gets in until she leaves. And of course finding a new job is out of the question since she and her husband own the company. And she doesn't even want to snack on healthy stuff - she wants to stop the at work boredom eating completely.

Has anyone here ever encountered this? If so, what types of suggestions did you use?

Hi Julia, we have a script called Boredom Eating on Hypnotic World if you want to check that out, however from what you say, I think the Stop Snacking script would probably be the most useful approach.

I looked at both of those but they don't quite do what I need. It's almost like she's eating for distraction because at home she has tasks to keep her busy. She does her work but I don't think her focus is 100% there because she doesn't enjoy it.

Hi Julia
I have come across this and had the same problem eating at work as not really enjoying the work.
I see that you have suggested snacking on healthy foods, as i did as when you take something away it needs to be replaced, so how about finding out what your client likes to do in their leisure time and suggesting walking, jogging or some form of exercise rather than eating, also to keep a food journey, as when they do this they become more accountable, when they have to think about what they are putting in their body. i also say that we are so lucky to have healthy bodies, so why do we want to destroy it with sugar and unhealthy foods.
Can i also suggest that i send my clients a free audio download when they've been to see me, so that they can listen to it daily whilst at home or before going going to sleep. As this reinforces your suggestions in their minds.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
Warm regards
Dolina :-)
