9 Strategies to Stop Overeating
4 New Ways to Stop Stress Eating
Can't resist the office vending machine? Blame your boss. According to researchers at Emory University, when alpha female monkeys ordered around less dominant pack members, the inferior animals ate significantly more (and gained more weight) over a 2-month period than the "mean girls" in charge. The submissive monkeys also had higher levels of cortisol, the stress hormone linked with dangerous belly fat. Here, a few work-friendly ways to prevent stress eating:
1. E-mail yourself every time you eat. Include circumstances--a tense conversation with your manager, a sudden deadline--and note how you were feeling (sad, stressed, panicked). Review the messages every Friday and look for emotional eating patterns. Create a plan for what you'll do differently next time.
2. Instead of turning to food, e-mail a buddy and tell her how you're feeling. Wait for a response before you head to the kitchen.
3. Sip green or black tea before you reach for a snack; the drink contains theanine, an amino acid that increases levels of relaxing chemicals in the brain.
