About the Book

 
 


Do you eat when you are upset? If you do, you may be a stress eater. Don't worry, you are not alone. Stress or emotional eating is the practice of consuming large quantities of food, usually "comfort" or junk foods, in response to feelings instead of hunger. Experts estimate that 75% of overeating is caused by emotions in reaction to a stressor like a break up, child care issues, loss of a job, tight deadlines at work, working too many hours, financial concerns, etc. Many of us learn that food can bring comfort, at least in the short-term. As a result, we often turn to food to heal emotional problems and to deal with stress. Why?

Stress can deplete the body's energy reserves which is why we crave sugar and high fat foods like ice cream, cookies and potato chips. It is our bodies' way of building up its energy reserves for long-term survival. However, eating becomes a habit preventing us from learning skills that can effectively resolve our emotional distress. Recent studies have shown that stress is detrimental to weight and health and leads to obesity. However, the problem with the body's response to the stress is that the more it is activated, the harder it is to shut off. Instead of leveling off once the crisis has passed, your stress hormone levels, heart rate, and blood pressure remain elevated long-term which can be detrimental to your health. Chronic and long-term stress causes many to stress eat and binge until you temporarily feel better. This can cause an increase in body fat, especially abdominal fat; diabetes; premature aging and even slows down the metabolism. This is why it is difficult to lose weight if you are stressed. Studies have shown that those people that cope with stress more effectively, do not turn to food as a solution. In addition, they have fewer weight problems and a lower body fat percentage. As we remove the stress out of our lives, our cravings are also reduced and our energy is increased.

The Stress Eater Diet will show you how to lower your stress level so you "stress less and lose more". Research studies have shown that low levels of serotonin are linked to low energy, binge eating, increased carb cravings and depression. Serotonin levels can also be depleted during stressful periods.
