Stress and Sugar
- Don’t keep “junk” food around. If its there when you’re stressed, you’ll probably eat it!
- Plan Ahead- keep healty, low sugar, high protein snacks available. When possible, divide into reasonable portions, all the better to avoid mindlessly overeating when the stress hormones kick into overdrive. Having your own snacks will make avoiding the sugar laden candy bowl or the vending machine easier.
- Don’t forget to eat healthy meals too! When trying to reach a deadline it seems like skipping a meal to make a deadline is a good idea. But remember, your body needs proper nutrition all the more when under stress. In the long it will be worth it and a meal will fuel you to think better and faster.
