Have you ever felt hungry after an argument? Research in the journal Psychological Science found the more stress we feel, the higher our levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin! And when we’re stressed, we tend to reach for sugary, high-fat treats, which drastically raises our risk for depression and weight gain. The good news? Researchers say just KNOWING this can happen can boost our health. Because while we can’t change how our body reacts to stress, we can change the foods we have on hand. That way, you’ll be less likely to blow your diet after your next blowup argument.
