Have you ever been prone to an episode of stress eating? Do you joke around about needing some sort of comfort food after a long, hard day?
If this describes you, then you could be at risk for allowing your emotional well being to control your physical appearance and overall physical health.
Stress eating is a very real thing. Just as some people reach for a cigarette, alcohol or drugs, you reach for burger or chips – maybe even some comforting mac and cheese.
This mindless eating habit helps you calm down after a day full of stress and issues. You get your mind off of your problems by planning, shopping for, preparing and eating your meals.
Depression is another mental health issue that causes people to overeat. You’re not listening to your hunger cues when you eat out of depression – you’re simply focused on food as a way to help you hide from your feelings.
Mental diet sabotage isn’t just about the bad times, either. Some people even reward themselves with food. They celebrate everything – every good feeling – with food!
And what are your eating habits? Did you ever catch yourself of overeating your issues? Did you ever think that step #1 in weight loss and management is in bringing your mind to order? Share in comments, please, I would love to hear.
