Stress Eating

When we’re stressed, worried, or frightened, we’re more likely to seek out sugars, fats, and carbs for a quick energy boost. These comfort foods act like a natural tranquilizer that calms us down in times of peril. This is why we turn to stress eating.

When you’re stressed, your body releases a large amount of a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol can make you hungry and this is why stress eating is considered an emotional response.

To break the stress cycle, we must find stress-reducing activities, such as exercise, meditation, and yoga.

Here are some tips to help with stress eating.

1. Eat nutritious foods. 

2. Portion meals.

3. Practice mindful eating.

4. Inventory your kitchen.

5. Change your routine.

6. Exercise self-care.
