Stress is basically any physical, circumstantial or emotional change that you have to adjust to.
It is generally believed that stress is caused by negative events such as illness, death of a loved one or difficulties in relationships or business. But as a matter of fact, stress can be positive as well like a big promotion.
The major sources of stress are your emotions, your thoughts, your body and your environment. It has been estimated that about 80% of all illnesses and health problems are directly or indirectly related to stress, overweight-ness being just one of them!
In essence, stress itself is not negative but its outcomes are. If stress is not managed properly, your mind finds a way to react to stress in order to dilute its effects in a negative manner.
Overweight-ness and obesity are related to stress in more than one ways. You must have experienced that you subconsciously tend to eat unhealthy food in unreasonable amounts when you are tense.
Binging is perhaps the most common problem faced by individuals trying to lose weight and a binge is nothing but a simple and sudden subconscious response to stress.
A binge typically has the following 3-step sequential pattern:
- The dieter has some stress, anxiety or a feeling of depression. He feels like doing something about it but doesn’t know what to do.
- Specific subconscious thought patterns are formed and the dieter feels a sudden and intense urge to do something immediately to make him feel better.
- The body responds physically to the stress by going on an unhealthy eating spree.
One way to short-circuit a binge pattern is to get rid of all the stresses in your life but since it’s not possible to escape from all the stress sources of life, the only solution is to know ways and techniques to cope with stress so it doesn’t translate into negative results especially overweight-ness.
