The Worst Foods For Stress

The Worst Foods For Stress | How to manage stress | Scoop.it

There are a number of unhealthy ways to cope with pressure and anxiety, but "stress eating" candy and chips -- or turning to alcohol and energy drinks -- might just take the proverbial cake. Paradoxically, when dealing with stress, the body frequently craves precisely the foods that will exacerbate the condition most.

"When they're stressed, people go naturally to the wrong foods because they increase levels of [the stress hormone] cortisol," Heather Bauer, R.D., founder of Bestowed.com, told the Huffington Post. "People tend to crave foods that are high in fat, sugar and salt because those directly increase our cortisol levels."

 

But before you head to the vending machine for a quick fix for your stressful work day, click through the slideshow below to see what foods you should avoid when under pressure. Instead, try one of these stress-busting superfoods.

My Thoughts,

Polin's insight:

My Thoughts,

I really enjoyed this article because I learned new ways to cope with stress. With school and work colliding together my stress can definitely get the best of me. The article mentioned to make a clear to-do list which I think is a wonderful idea. I have made a few to-do lists in my life time and I do like them because it gives me control of which things need to be done as soon as possible and which are not as important. Im going to start using to-do list a lot more often just so I can have control of what needs to be done.

If this is not enough to catch your attention, consider this: Stress can make you fat. Stress can not only cause you to eat more, it can have an impact on the way you store fat.
Polin's insight:

My Thoughts,

I knew that stress may cause over eatting or just eatting bad foods. Little did I know that stress may cause weight gain. I never knew stress affects our immune system, or that stress has an impact on the way our body stores fat. I will be taking this in for the future and trying my best to control my stress.
