The Surprising Ways Stress Can Make You Sick

The Surprising Ways Stress Can Make You Sick | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it
Feeling overwhelmed affects everything from digestion to stroke risk.

 

The advice, “Stop worrying! Stress is bad for you” is true, but as with a lot of health guidance, its vagueness makes it less effective.

 

It’s like when people say that getting lots of sleep is important, or that you should eat more fiber—it’s the kind of thing people might like to do, but will probably keep forgetting to do, because it’s not immediately clear how it will make them healthier.

Read how the food companies trick you into craving junk food by making certain foods more addictive and tasty than others.

 

Steven Witherly, a food scientist has spent the last 20 years studying the why of addictive junk food. Read the entire article to get links to his excellent report, "Why Humans Like Junk Food".

 

Witherly says there are 2 factors that make eating pleasurable: one is the sensation of eating the food. This includes tastes, smell, and mouthfeel - which is very important. Food companies spend millions of dollars to discover the satisfying level of crunch in a potato chip or the perfect amount of fizzle in a soda. These factors all combine to create the food your brain craves.

 

The second factor is the actual macronutrient makeup of the food - blend of proteins, carbs, and fats it contains. And in the case of junk food, the manufacturers are looking for the perfect combination of salt, sugar, and fat that excites your brain, and gets you coming back for more.

 

So what can you do about this craving because as you probably know by now, junk food is unhealthy and causes a myriad of chronic diseases, weight gain, obesity, and even death in certain individuals. 

 

As you begin eating less and less processed foods, you begin to go through a transition period known as "gene reprogramming".

 

Best strategy is to avoid buying these products. If you can't do that then try to reduce the amount you buy/eat by using his strategies.

 

"Outer ring" and "5 ingredient rule". 

Shop on the outer ring of the grocery store where the produce section is located and the eggs, meats, fish etc. Remember you're really wanting real whole food, food that you're body recognizes, and food that serves your body.

 

.If the product has more than 5 ingredients, then put it back on the shelf. It most likely is trying to trick you into buying.

 

Eat a variety of foods and eat Rainbow Foods. These are the foods that contain the antioxidants, the phytonutrients, the minerals, and vitamins that your body craves.

 

Instead of eating a chip with a dip of unknown ingredients. try eating carrots, celery, red, orange peppers with hummus or nut butters. You'll still get the crunch and your body will thank you by keeping you healthy. Just remember to chew slowly and you'll get a great mouthfeel. Plus your digestive system will be happy.

 

And there are better alternatives to handling stress than eating junk foods which really do not comfort you in the long run. Listen to music you like, get up and dance with your special ones, breathe deeply and let out a pleasurable sound, try yoga, meditation, take a nature walk, sing in the shower, laugh for no reason - a great stress reducer, help someone else and you'll forget your problems.

Rhodiola Rosea: Benefiting the Mind, Balancing the Body

Rhodiola Rosea: Benefiting the Mind, Balancing the Body | Healthy Eating News | Scoop.it

Discover the incredible benefits of Rhodiola Rosea. Hidden from the West for decades, Rhodiola is one of the world’s most studied and widely used herbs.  

 

In Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, how and where a plant grows often speaks volumes about its inherent medicinal properties. For example, root vegetables like potatoes and radishes are known to be grounding—literallyspeaking theygrow deep in the soil—and energetically they keep our minds focused, practical and present—all earthly qualities. Compare this to many fruits, on the other hand, which grow on trees, high off the ground. They are expansive, light and airy both in their actual physical qualities and the effects they produce in the body and mind. Eating lots of tree fruits can stimulate creativity and imagination and are often favored bymeditatorsand artists."
