STRESS EATING DEFINED
Stress-Eating can best be defined as the consumption of carbohydrate-rich and/or high-fat foods in response to mental, physical, or emotional stress.
Stress-eating is marked by a compelling hunger or by recurring, undeniable cravings that, initially, may be triggered by any of the following:
a sense of powerlessness
unexpressed anger or frustration
fear and/or worry
lack of sleep
boredom, loneliness, or disappointment
loss of a loved one
the need for a reward
many prescription and over-the-counter medications
an unpleasant, messy, or disorganized environment
excessive noise, heat, or cold
Over time, an imbalance of hormones can trap the stresseater in a Stress-Eating Cycle that is
self-perpetuating when the initial stress trigger is no longer present.
The medical term for stress-eating is stress-induced hyperphagia, a condition that often goes undiagnosed and untreated.
Weight-loss diets do not address the physical cause of a stress-eater’s cravings, hunger, and tendency to put weight on easily. It is little wonder that, in the long run, these diets are virtually bound to fail.
THE STRESS-EATING CURE is a program specifically designed to return the body to an optimal hormonal balance. Once the physical cause of stress-eating is eliminated, stress-hunger, cravings, stress-eating, and weight problems disappear—naturally.
