Can I recommend Fat is a Feminist Issue by Susie Orbach? It's a fascinating read, offering lots of insight into why people overeat. I've seen it mentioned on these threads before, so I think a few people have found it useful.

Have you tried slimming world rather than WW? I couldnt survive on the WW diet, I was always running out of points and going to bed so hungry With SW, there is always something you can eat.

I second uberalice's suggestion but it's quite weighty (no pun intended). A potted version is On Eating by Susie Orbach which takes about 30 mins to read and is about exactly what is in your OP. i.e. why do we eat when we're not hungry?

We eat because we're tired/upset/thirsty/lonely/sad/anxious/bored/whatever.

I lost a stone and a half when I read it.
