Find other useful things to do when you feel stressed - as suggested by Anon, try exercise, absorbing tasks, and non-fattening snacks like a cup of tea or some vegietables. If you don't have piles of comfort food sitting round the house or office, calling to you, your impulse is usually not strong enough to push you to go out, get in a car, drive to the mall, and buy some junk food.
Not only can Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy CBT help change these bad habits permanently, but it could help you identify why you are constantly feeling stressed ( which is probably not inevitable ) and how to so change your life as to modify the stressing and its triggers.
Hypnotism isn't the answer ( though I don't think is has major religious significance ) as the real aim, as in CBT, should be on strengthening your ability to avoid and deal with stress in healthier ways, and hypnosis doesn't do that.
I used to use greek-style Worry Beads, to have something comforting to fiddle with when agitated, and nobody gains weight with those !
