Stress Eating - How Do You Digest Your STRESS??
Did you know that up to 27% of adults use STRESS as an excuse for overeating?
(34% of these admit it to be a habit!)
If you’re one of the many people who turn to food as a means of dealing with their STRESS, then you’ve come to the right place. Emotional (or stress) eating has become an ever-increasing problem among today’s workforce, to the extent that it can often be difficult to determine if what you’re feeling is actual hunger, or simply an unprocessed bout of stress and extreme emotion.
Repeated Thoughts, Repeated Action
The more often you treat a period of intense stress or emotion with an excess intake of food, the more accustomed your body becomes to receiving it, and the more likely it is that it will happen again.
Quite often, these periods of intense emotion or stress can be confused with the need to overeat, simply because you’ve created a habit of doing so.
However, the mental and physical effects of stress cause the body to be lacking in energy, so your body’s first natural reaction is to seek more, which naturally comes in the form of either food or sleep.
