Pizza … ice cream … chips … or whatever other food falls into your “self-soothing” category.
Stress eating is REAL.
BUT … too much stress eating will derail your results. And even more importantly, it’s not good for your health.
I’ve seen it happen time and time again with some of my clients. They’ll be feeling GREAT and amazing making progress, but then BOOM! They’ll get hammered by a busy time at work, a sleepless night, or a super hectic week, and if they aren’t prepared ahead of time, the stress flood gates open – and it’s stress-eating central!
I’ve got a quick rundown of why this matters – and what to do about it. You will probably recognize this stress eating cycle:
You get stressed … your cortisol levels rise … your metabolism slows … you crave sugar or other processed foods … your blood sugar rises and falls … you get more cravings … and on and on.
You need a plan BEFORE THIS HAPPENS to help avoid falling into that cycle.
When you notice yourself getting stressed:
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are chronically stressed and feel “stuck” or overwhelmed, reach out for help!
Remember this: You are much stronger than your stressful days.
