If a friend's negative vibes send you directly to the candy jar, you may be a food empath. A what now? Psychiatrist Judith Orloff, M.D., author of The Empath's Survival Guide, explains:

What's an empath, exactly? And a food empath?
Empaths are sensitive, intuitive people who are emotional sponges, taking on the feelings of those around them. A food empath seeks comfort from others' negative energies by overeating or eating highly pleasurable foods.

But don't we all eat more when we're stressed?
The difference is that a food empath doesn't turn to food only when they feel sad or have a busy day. It's about other people: They may be triggered by a grumpy coworker just as much as by a packed social schedule that drains their energy.

Any way to protect yourself?
An important tool is alone time if you're emotionally overwhelmed, try to quiet everything for at least five minutes, no noise, bright lights, or Internet, and take deep breaths to recover from sensory overload. That way you won't need to reach for food as armor. Exercise is also key for empaths, since it physically releases tension and negativity.
