Stress Eating - Weight Loss Resistance Factor
Does this sound like you?
I frequently experience a great deal of stress in some aspect of my life.
I rarely get 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night.
I tend to eat more when I am anxious, worried, tired, sad, or upset.
I often eat on the run or while I'm busy doing something else.
At least twice a week, I eat food that I don't really enjoy or that I know isn't good for me because it is readily available.
Stress Eaters eat in response to emotional tension. Stress causes the adrenal glands to secrete excess cortisol, a hormone that can elevate blood sugar and trigger hunger, over-eating, and weight gain.
Chronic stress, combined with inadequate nutrition, insufficient relaxation and lack of sleep, can lead to excess blood cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands that mediates the body's response to stress. Although cortisol is an essential stress-protection hormone, research has confirmed the close relationship between high cortisol levels and stress-induced obesity. In fact, stress is the most commonly reported trigger of binge-eating. Not surprisingly, recent studies indicate that high cortisol levels are not only positively related to excess abdominal body fat, but also to increased food intake following stress, particularly of sweet and high-fat foods. In addition, researchers have consistently found elevated cortisol levels among individuals with depression. Furthermore, prolonged high levels of cortisol increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance and diabetes, bone loss, muscle wasting and impaired immunity.
Stress Eaters benefit by adopting relaxation techniques, mindfulness and coping skills to replace nervous eating. Staying active and sleeping at least 7 hours at night can help normalize cortisol levels.
