People who have stressful jobs tend to make poor choices when they are off of work and eat dinner. They are prone to over-eating and therefore gain weight. If these stressed out workers got a full night’s sleep, they were less likely to have the weight gain and more likely to eat healthier and make better choices. Sleep is an important factor in maintaining a healthy weight. Some people are emotional eaters, and stress is a strong emotion that keeps people from making good food choices.
- stress is the main factor that is responsible for weight gain and lifestyle related diseases.
- importance of good nights rest to reduce the stress and to lead a healthy life.
- weight gain can cause many systemic symptoms and causes fat build up in the heart and blood vessels
“A new study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology is one of the first to examine the ways in which work-related psychological experiences can affect how we eat. It found that stress on the job leads not only to overeating but also to unhealthy food choices.”
