I am an emotional eater too, although to a much lesser extent when I'm eating fairly low-carb Paleo. Are you hitting up the junk food? From what I have read, this could have a revolving door effect because of the neurotransmitter response (serotonin, dopamine, or both) of wheat and sugar, which will increase your depression when the temporary "fix" wears off. When I find myself falling into this loop, I just emotionally eat steak and sweet potatoes or bacon and eggs (or anything similar) for a few days to try and kick the cravings.
I wish I liked to eat liver.
