Did you know that eating while stressed can impair you from properly absorbing the vitamins and minerals in your food? It is true. #themoreyouknow
⬇⬇So what can you do if your job is stressful and
your office place doesn’t offer healthy eating options? ⬇⬇
COMMIT TO 5- 10 minutes of exercise after stress and before you eat.
The science from the Exercise Following Mental Health Study (Neumeier, Goodner, Biasini, Dhurandhar, Menear, Turan, Hunter, 2016):
The brain hogs all the glucose (energy) when you commit to a stressful project. Think of your brain as a muscle: moving the muscle requires blood. So, when you are “thinking hard” more blood gets pushed into your brain, bringing with it extra glucose for energy.
Because your brain is hogging the blood and energy, the rest of your body will begin to fatigue. You are now in Negative Energy.
Your body now NEEDS to replace the energy your brain has stolen. So your body wants to call on its energy reserves. But it does not want to give up its reserves easily, so, instead, you begin to feel hungry. This is your body telling you, “eat to replace the lost energy”. Now, I am by no means telling you to starve yourself. Your body is begging for energy! So, I am saying take 5- 10 minutes to do a small workout and your body will pull the energy from its reserves ⇒ for example, your fat cells.
Another HUGE benefit showed in the Exercise Following Mental Work study completed by the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Texas Tech University supporting all this: those who exercised after a stressful work project ended up eating less because they went into Positive Energy from the exercise, so their bodies required less food to replace the energy lost.
