Much has been written on emotional eating and dieting. I think we all now can agree that there is a direct correlation between eating to fill emotional emptiness and overeating to fill what we think is hunger. It is very difficult to separate the feeling of emptiness in our guts caused by hunger from the emptiness that causes emotional eating but we need to learn how (and certainly can learn) to do this if we are going to be healthy and truly happy people. When we feel emptiness in out guts, empty and alone, then we often grab comfort food to fill this emptiness. Because it is not what will really fill this type of emptiness (emotional), we are not truly satisfied stuffing ourselves with food (even though it is enjoyable at the time) and we keep eating to attempt to fill it, often resulting in unwanted weight gain.
