Do you eat comfort food to relieve stress?
Trying to lose weight is stressful! Stress actually had most of the effect (not the food) of getting you overweight in the first place. Dieting and starving yourself to lose weight is also stressful. And, over-exercise, and certain types of commonly done exercise to get the weight off, can also be one of the contributing factors to stress. Add to the fact that most people want to lose weight fast and get back to their “normal” life. Losing weight fast is very stressful to your body. And those miserable feelings of guilt, embarrassment and self-loathing are also stressful!
Weight challenges are probably the hardest problem people have to deal with. You are faced with “your devil: food’, at least three times a day. If you were addicted to a drug, or alcohol, you don’t NEED to have it in your life to survive. But food is necessary, and everywhere. So much of your day is spent planning, shopping, preparing, eating or cleaning up facing your eating challenge. It’s STRESSFUL. Especially when there are few absolute, definitive answers to the entire area of nutrition and weight. You’ve probably dieted a number of times, but the weight is back, and you are trying to lose it again!
There is a way to USE the focus on food to your advantage. Instead of fearing meals, this time, your mindset and your relationship with food can be used positively for STRESS RELIEF and it will help with weight loss goals!

Stress is the one variable that all DIETS leave out when they tell you how to lose weight. But stress has the most important impact on your ability to maintain a healthy weight, to lose weight, and even to get nutrition from the food you eat! Bottom line- if you’re stressed, you are doing damage inside your body that is reflected by extra fat! Belly fat is the area where the effects of stress are most evident.
Have you ever thought that EATING can actually be a stress relief practice? When you think about it logically, people are already actually trying to use food as the drug of choice for their stress. When you eat from the effects of stress, you call it eating “comfort food”.
This shows that your body is on the right path! But you are using eating in the wrong way, and that’s why the food isn’t serving the function to relieve stress! And there are a couple of actual foods that DO help relieve stress- and believe me, you will be SHOCKED! (and probably find it hard to believe).
So many people say they “don’t have time” to do meditation, or any other kind of stress relief. But when you use eating as your stress relief, it gives you A LOT of time! You have an opportunity at least 3 times a day when you nurture your body with food.
