CPM Don’t Be A Stress Eater ….

One of the biggest complaints I hear from clients is they need to reduce stress and live a healthier lifestyle.

So here are 5 very easy adjustments to stay on your track with those goals…..

#1 Have an alternative for your go to “stress” food or snack – For example if you are a chocolate lover, reach for the Trader Joe’s 70% cacao dark chocolate and have a square even put a little almond butter if you are a reeses fanatic. If you are a salt lover try this sweet potato chip (you can use zucchini as well) recipe.

#2 Get it out of your house! – Have you ever heard the term “Out of sight out of mind”. If you don’t have it in your house, desk, around period then you won’t be tempted to grab it.

#3 Eliminate all processed foods – I am talking about the 100 calorie packs, protein bars riddled with chemicals, rice cakes etc.. These foods send triggers to your brain to crave and eat more of the bad stuff! Replace these foods with veggies, fruits, nuts etc.. and you will be satisfied longer and crave less.

#4 Drink more H2O – A lot of times we reach for foods because we “feel” hungry, but we are actually just dehydrated. Drink a 20 oz glass of water and wait about ten to fifteen minutes and if you are still hungry then reach for the healthy snack of choice.

#5 Sleep – This should actually be #1 because it is the most important! Getting a good nights rest is vital to your snacking success. When we sleep, we keep our cortisol levels normal which eliminates the “hunger pain”. This way you won’t snack and you feel like a million bucks.

Now that you have all the tools for reducing your stress eating, what are you going to do about it CPM?
