Weight Loss Mindset - Stress Eating Basics

You’ve probably experienced stress eating and if you haven’t, you’ve probably heard of it. Things aren’t going too well, or maybe things are going too well and you feel a little overwhelmed, and you find yourself making less than excellent food choices.

Bad Food is Easy

Stress eating, the aptly named condition to define eating when you’re stressed, can be caused by a number of things. Some of these are actually fairly complicated biological events. We’ll start with the simplest things first

Your Body is Programmed to Crave Bad Foods When You’re Stressed

Many of your moods and physiological functions are caused by messenger molecules called “hormones” that your body releases in response to external factors.
