Down Stress, Down

There have been many studies that show that stress can hinder weight loss. I can honestly say that this is true because I am proof. But, is it because stress causes our body to freak out or is it because stress causes munchies and other poor diet habits? Because I am one of those poor choice people I decided to research food that helps fight stress. I found this acticle online:

There are several reasons why we stress and different way to cope with it. Here are some of the key points I found:

  • Bloated and Stressed: Eat Jerusalem artichokes, chicory, bananas, garlic, onions and leeks. 
  • Wired and Stresses: Eat protein with every meal; eggs, meat or fish. Also eat healthy fats and plenty of vegetables.
  • Cold and Stressed: Eat less sugar and refined carbs. Eat protein and good fats with each meal. Cut back on alcohol and coffee. Avoid raw cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and kale. Eat warming foods such as chili, ginger, green tea, turmeric, cider vinegar, horseradish and wasabi.
  • Ill and Stressed: Eat fresh brightly coloured fruit and vegetables. Spices, tea, green tea, garlic, red wine and dark chocolate are also good to eat. 
  • Hormonal and Stressed: Eat organic meat, eggs and dairy products tend to be lower in growth hormones. Eat a little fermented soy like soy sauce, tamari, miso, and tempeh can help. Also eat plenty of fiber. 
  • Tired and stressed: Eat more red meat, fish and eggs, spinach and watercress, poultry, milk, tofu and mushrooms. Also make sure to get more fluids by increasing fruit and veggie intake. 
  • Demotivated and Stressed: Eat protein with every meal. Eat bio-yogurt and cut back on sugar.  
I think the key here is to eat your protein, limit your sugar, and avoid gassy foods. The one thing that stood out to me was that I need to become ill and stressed because those people get to eat chocolate. So, before you pick up a bag of chips and munch the stress away take a look at this list and pick the best alternative.
