Can you use willpower to stop compulsive eating?

I'm an emotional eater and recently I've found myself out of control! I am trying to unterstand the underlying causes of my urges to eat. I am wondering from an educated position if it is possible to stop this kind of behavior relying only on willpower.

This kind of behaviour is normally seen with the depression setting in. Discuss your symptoms with your doctor and counsellor.
