How To Cope With Frequent Eating And Snacking When Stressed So That You Gain Weight?
Afternoon dokI want to ask ….. Why when I’m stressed my weight increases and does not go down? When I’m stressed I always want to eat and snack a lot … Is there a cure for stress and reduce my appetite?
Thank you for the question.
Different people will certainly have different ways of dealing with stress. If most people who are stressed tend to be lazy to eat, until their weight decreases, then some others do not, including you. This condition is not always dangerous. However, it should be understood, this excessive eating pattern, if not properly controlled, risks causing you to experience obesity (even obesity) and also increases the risk of various diseases, such as metabolic syndrome, hypertension, diabetes, and so on. In addition to stress factors experienced, excessive appetite is also a big influence due to hormonal fluctuations, activities undertaken, the influence of drugs, or other illnesses suffered, such as digestive disorders, diabetes, thyroid gland disorders, and so on.
Because stress is the main trigger of your condition, good stress management is the wisest way to deal with it. This you can do by:
Don't think about a problem too complicated, just focus on finding a solution
Don't like to lock yourself in. If you find it difficult to find a solution to the problem being faced, do not hesitate to discuss with others to help find a solution.
Get used to positive thinking, including when overwritten by a problem, take wisdom from the problem
Live a healthy diet and balanced nutritional value, little by little but regularly (4-6 hours)
In between meals, if you feel hungry, eat healthy snacks, such as cut fruit, juice, low-calorie cookies
Drink more to help delay hunger
Do productive activities in your daily life, as a way to divert a sense of prison, for example by exercising, doing hobbies, chatting with people nearby
Balance your increased appetite with regular exercise, don't be too quiet and play gadgets
If your condition has not improved with the above efforts, it is advisable to consult a doctor, psychiatrist, or nutritionist, right?
I hope this helps.
