When it comes to dieting, stress-eating is one of the toughest things to combat...
After all, not only is dieting itself stressful, it seems like the moment you decide to commit to a diet and exercise plan, THAT is when everything decides to blow up on you.
And before you know it, you find yourself facedown in a bag of potato chips that were "for the kids"...
And then you feel it...that horrible GUILT, knowing you shouldn't have eaten that but you just couldn't help it.
Which causes even MORE stress.
It's a vicious circle...
So how do you break it? Do you just need more willpower?
Well here's the thing...quite often, it's not about willpower...
When you break your diet, you immediately jump to "if I only had the willpower to put those chips down."
That can just make things worse.
Willpower is actually a limited resource (for real...this has been demonstrated in studies)...and you use up some of it every time you say no to something.
The bigger the things you say no to, the more willpower you use up.
So by the end of a rough day, even a small temptation can set off that chain reaction of massive stress eating.
Then, when you're full of food and amped up on stress, your SLEEP suffers...
And when you get poor, restless sleep, it sets off a whole hormonal cascade that works AGAINST everything you're trying to achieve by dieting.
Inadequate sleep can reduce fat loss by up to 55% and slow your metabolism by up to 20% (when sleep is restricted, dieters produce higher levels of ghrelin, a hormone that triggers hunger and reduces energy expenditure).
So with all this stacked against you, how do you fix it, stop the stress eating and get the fat loss moving again?
It's not as simple as just saying "be less stressed." That's like telling a panicking person to calm down.
Sometimes you DO need some outside help to help your brain deal with things without melting down.
There are herbs and spices (and mushrooms) that can help.
Turmeric and ashwagandha are two of the big ones that I've used and they're very effective. I've supplemented with these before and they work really well.
There are also brain-supporting mushroom extracts that can really help support your mental state so that the stress just rolls right off you rather than you internalizing it.
I've been testing a product that contains all of these ingredients (and several more that help with appetitie and blood sugar control).
It's called "Golden Superfood Bliss."
And if you have issues with stress, stress-eating and the resulting terrible sleep (and, of course, the metabolic damage it does to you!), you're going to want to learn more about this stuff.
You take it before bed, and it helps you destress and get better sleep...which could be the keystone you need to reset your entire outlook on life :).
Here's the full list of ingredients:
The stuff tastes AWESOME.
If you've ever tried turmeric with coconut milk, you're familiar with the smooth, silky, tiny bit spicy taste. It's like that with a little bit of cinnamon.
It's something you'll look forward to every night.
I like to mix it in hot tap water, though you can boil up water or even mix it cold water. I find regular hot water to be just perfect.
Right now, they're running a special where you can potentially get an additional "mystery" gift with your purchase...and even an extra free bag of the stuff as well.
I really like this stuff. It's absolutely worth testing out, especially if you have issues with stress eating and poor sleep.
