So I have a tendency to overeat when I'm bored, or stressed. Any tips to either stay full or help gain willpower to not eat when I don't need to?

Drinking a glass of water helps keep you from overeating.

What might help is eating a really good and healthy breakfast in the morning because it helps you stay full during the day and will make you less likely to want to snack later on. Eggs, maybe oatmeal with fruit, stuff like that that's full of protein helps me.....
If you really can't stop from snacking, try emptying your kitchen from junk food and unhealthy choices so your only snacks will be healthy foods (fruits, veggies) and you can eat as much of that as you want without delaying any progress for your goals....
Hope this helps:)

Drinking a glass of water before each meal will help keep you from overeating.

Physiologically when you are stressed your cortisol levels are high which then triggers insulin to be produced in the liver. These are two powerful hormones that have very large effect on your body. When you're stressed, exercise to utilize the 'build up' of sugar on your body. Exercise will burn the
Sugar and your mood will improve as well due  to the release of endorphins.

Once you exercise, feed your body with complex carbs (low glycemic of 65 and below), then a source of protein, and essential fats (omega 3-6). This will help you ensure you aren't reaching for that ice cream bucket when you're stressed.

You have to understand the human body is an excellent machine that know how to protect itself from 'danger' to itself - sugar being one of the primary source of energy - hence why you reach for ice cream bucket (expression).

Sorry but that is NOT going to work. Water has no calories... it's just fluid. When you're hungry what your body is seeking (or brain for that matter) is calories and source of energy... that source is typically primed for sugar rich foods since they are high in glucose and easily digestable. So drinking water is NOT going to fill you up.

You really need to understand the physiology first before you start to do a trial and error approach..., it can be devastating if you are not careful.

Sip water to stay full . read a book. Or even better>> workout. Working out relieves stress. Try going for a run to clear your head. & don't keep junk food in the house.

Fruits, veggies and lean meats are your friends - Stay away from processed stuff

Eat low glycemic foods in small amounts. Nuts, whole wheat, animal proteins... etc
