Healthy Eating Habits For Women
The usual stressful events that happen daily should be bearable by most people. Stress happens a problem when such events start to heap up. When this happens, a person who is over-subjected to stress can become chronically stressed. Chronical stress does not only appear as momentary welfare and impaired psycho-physical condition, but it also causes changes in one’s physiological state, because stress destroys the state of homeostasis or so-called “status quo” of the body.
1. Try to eat the same things every day
After having my son, I lost 52 pounds and have been able to maintain it using what I call the ‘1:1:1 formula,’ which refers to one protein, one fat, and one carb at every meal and snack.
By doing this, I’ve found that I’ve naturally reduced caloric intake without feeling restricted. For instance, for breakfast, I select oatmeal or fruit as a carb. The 1:1:1 formula has helped me learn how to eat the foods I love without giving up food groups, or counting points or calories.
2. Always cook enough for leftovers
After graduating from high school, I gained about 15 to 20 pounds, the last 10 of which wouldn’t budge for about 10 years, until I made some simple lifestyle changes making enough for dinner one night to have lunch the next.
Cooking enough food to have leftovers the next day helps me avoid eating out. I also have a couple of fall-back options if there’s not enough food from the previous night: I either pack frozen veggies and beans with some sauce that I heat at work, or I have elements of a meal at all times in my office that I can use if I didn’t have time to get it ready, such as pre-packaged instant rice, corn, and sweet peas.
3. Drink water
Three years ago, I finally took charge of my health and committed to successfully losing 70 pounds. To maintain this weight loss, I’ve committed to nixing what I consider ’empty calories,’ a.k.a., foods that don’t add any nutritional value, like cakes and sugary drinks.
Avoid Street Food. Stress Affects Eating Habits most
One can request comfort in food as their lust for food rises or doesn’t feel like eating at all because they lost their hunger. Maybe the fact that pressure raises hunger is new to you. But let’s take a closer look. Research on animals revealed that in most cases stress caused a smaller food intake. But something excellent happened when animals got to select between the tasty food and less palatable food. When being under stress, animals ate tasteful food.
Research shows that about 30% of people degeneration food when grasp and lose their body weight. But most people eat more. Add up the easily accessible caloric dense food in the developed world and you’ll get the answer to why people complain they eat more when stressed all the time.
